MoYS presents a cheque for GH¢20,000 to
support Offinso football accident victims
Executive director of National Sports Authority, Prof. Peter Twumasi, on behalf of the minister of Youth and Sports, Isaac Asiama, Monday morning presented a cheque for GH¢20,000 to last year’s Offinso football accident victims.
The gesture forms part of the life insurance packages secured by the ministry with the GLICO Insurance for the victims in the River Offin accident that killed eight colts footballers.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the victims, municipal chief executive of Offinso, Solomon Kesse, stressed the assembly’s efforts made to establish an endowment fund for a long term support for the victims. He also used the occasion to thank the government and GLICO Insurance and appealed to other philanthropists to come to the aid of the affected families.
Last year, government donated GH¢100,000 to cover funeral and medical costs of the victims.
