Ghana’s only Skeleton Olympian Akwasi Frimpong and his wife, in partnership with his sponsor, Forever Living Products International have donated 1000 face masks to residents of Anwomaso and surrounding communities in Kumasi.
Anwomaso holds a special place in Akwasi Frimpong’s heart because his Grandmother lives there.
Akwasi Frimpong wanted to ensure that the people in the area are protected from the COVID-19 pandemic, so with the support of his wife and Forever Ghana, they made this possible by giving back to the society.
The team was led by Mr. Michael Boafo, Managing Director of Forever Living Products Ghana and Mr. Julius Ayimasu, the leading Forever Business Owner and Soaring Manager for Ghana.
Frimpong and his wife thanked the Forever Living family in Ghana & the Bobsled and Skeleton Federation of Ghana for making the distribution possible in those communities.
In Ghana wearing a face mask in public has become mandatory. As of Monday, July 6th 20,085 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Ghana.
