The Ag. Regional Director of Sports, Mr. Edmond Appiah, on behalf of the Directorate, made a financial donation to the Ashanti Regional wheelchair basketball Association on Monday, 15th April,2019 at the forecourt of the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

This was to support them in their preparation towards the successful hosting and participation in their international Wheelchair Basketball competition slated for 30th April to 2st of next month in in Kumasi.

He called on the general public to do same since government alone cannot shoulder the total cost of sustaining and strengthening the various sporting disciplines.

He further reiterated that, the Associations are private entities, making them independent of government and therefore requires the support of private individuals and entities.

This notwithstanding, he assured that, government will continue to support and encourage them, all with the view to helping to develop and promote sports in Ghana.
