The First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, has called on Ghanaians and corporate bodies to build the spirit of volunteerism and social responsibility to move the country forward.
“Let us build this nation together,” she said.
Mrs Akufo-Addo said this when officials from HFC Bank called on her, in Accra, to present a cheque for GH¢270,000 being donations mobilised from a cycling event.
The cycling event, which was a 688-kilometre ride from Tamale to Accra by 13 cyclists, was to raise funds for the construction of a Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound for the Nyanshegu community in Tamale in the Northern Region.
Dubbed the ‘Ride-Out-Malaria’ Initiative, it was a collaboration between Infanta Malaria Prevention Foundation, where the First Lady is the chairperson, and HFC Bank.
Mrs Akufo-Addo commended HFC for its participation in governance and in the provision of essential services to better the lot of all citizens.
