Akosua Twumwaah, a grand mum to eight children whose mother died recently after delivering them at the hospital received assistance from MTN last Friday.
Unemployed and living at a benefactor’s place at Asafo, a suburb in the Kumasi Metropolis had some foodstuffs, toiletries, baby foods, detergents and beverages to cater for the triplets who were born moments before the death of their mum.
Presenting the items and an undisclosed envelope on behalf of MTN Ghana, Simon Amoh, Acting General Manager of MTN Northern Business District with a teary eye said the story of the family had touched the hearts of all at his outfit.
He noted that MTN stands with the family in this difficult time hence the donation of the items.
”We at MTN see this unfortunate incident that has happened to the family as our case and since human life can not be replaced we decided to help the living kids and their granny so that they will have it easy to grow and live”, Mr Amoh stated.
The MTN official rallied corporate Ghana as well as well-meaning Ghanaians to support the family in their difficulty.
According to him, raising an eight children family was not an easy exercise.
He noted that with the granny being unemployed makes the case more difficult.
Mr. Amoh asked that support and assistance be made readily available to the family so that they do not feel society had given up on them.
”We at MTN have done our part and will help as and when it becomes necessary but we urge all well-meaning individuals as well as other corporate organizations to follow our example and help this family”, the NBD acting head posited.

Madam Akosua Twumwaah, granny to the kids commended MTN officials for the gesture.
Describing the act by the company as overwhelming, Madam Twumwaah said feeding of the kids had not been easy.
She said the father of the kids had been unavailable to fulfill his responsibilities since the demise of her daughter.
The gesture by MTN she noted had become godsent and appealed to other corporate organizations to follow suit so she can raise the eight kids including the almost 3months old triplets with names such as Emmanuel Snr, Emmanuel Jnr, and Emmanuela.
