Diplomatic Platform has presented assorted items worth GH₵10,000 to the inmates of the Cape Coast School for the Blind to help the school meet some of its daily needs after the NDC youth group toured the Central Region last week.
The items include bags of rice, boxes of Indomie noodles, tins of Milo and milk, cooking oil and assorted soft drinks.
Presenting the items to the inmates at a brief ceremony at the School’s premises in Cape Coast, Administrator of the Diplomatic Platform, Julius Logass, explained that the gesture forms part of President John Mahama’s Changing Lives and Transforming Ghana agenda.
“We are here for you to feel part of the Changing Lives and Transforming Ghana agenda of the NDC.
“We are also here to make sure that we extend what we have to the society but the less privileged ones as well,” he stressed.
Expressing the ideology of the Platform, which portray the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as the only credible and competent party in Ghana, Julius Logass urged all and sundry to vote massively for President Mahama to win a second term in office.
Julius Logass also stressed the need for all and sundry to play a good role in ensuring that Ghana remains peaceful before, during and after the November polls.
Coordinator of the Diplomatic Platform Nii Ashitei Ashietey maintained that the platform has always made it a point to reach out to the disadvantaged in the society since its inception.
He pledged the group’s magnanimity will be extended to cover more of the less privileged ones within the society across the length and breadth of the country.
Headmaster of the School Setum Ametewee, who received the items on behalf of the School, was grateful to Kofi Matthew, a member of the Platform, for serving as a conduit between the school and the Diplomatic Platform to reach the inmates with the items on time.
He thanked the group for the support and also used the occasion to appeal to other philanthropic individuals and organizations to emulate the kind gesture.
Meanwhile, the Diplomatic Platform in the Central Region toured the Cape Coast Municipal Assembly taxi rank, where they interacted with the public, highlighting the policies of the NDC’s Better Agenda, the achievements chalked by President John Dramani Mahama during his first tenure of office as copiously documented in his ‘Green Book’.
They finally visited the Kotokuraba market located in Cape Coast where they inspected the ongoing market project, which is almost 80% nearing completion.
The Diplomatic Platform is a Whatsapp platform created with youth membership of 100 who share in the principles and ideology of the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC).
The Platform has stretched its charity arm to support a worthy cause in many ways by reaching out to most disadvantaged ones in the society since its inception in July 22, 2014.
