The Member of Parliament for Effutu, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin, has made a donation of $30,000 to help in the evacuation of stranded Ghanaians in Lebanon.
The announcement was made on Oman 107.1 FM’s National Agenda Morning Show on Wednesday, July 22.
The donation is his contribution towards appeals made by some stranded Ghanaians who travelled to Lebanon and have been finding it difficult to cope with economic conditions in the country in the wake of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
A video which went viral had these helpless Ghanaians making passionate appeals to the President of the Republic to come to the aid of these stranded Ghanaians.
In the same video, an appeal was made to Honourable Kennedy Agyapong to assist in evacuating the said distressed Ghanaians from Lebanon.
The Assin Central Member of Parliament has since pledged to support the project with $150,000.
It is in the same light that the Honourable Member of Parliament for Effutu, Afenyo-Markin, has also donated $30,000 to help bring the stranded Ghanaians home.
