Former Black Meteors captain and Asante Kotoko midfielder Yussif Chibsah, and his brother Faisal Chibsah, through their Chibsah Foundation, have extended a hand of help to residents of Old Tafo Zongo Community in the Ashanti Region.
The Chibsah brothers made the donation to the people of their native town as part of efforts to help fight the deadly Coronavirus.
Ghana has seen increasing cases of the COVID-19 in the last few days prompting top football stars like Asamaoh Gyan, Samuel Owusu and Majeed Waris to join the fight to help curb the crisis.
The items were distributed by some members of the Chibsah family to households in the Old Tafo community.
“The @ChibsahFoundaxn has donated assorted food items to the aged and less privileged at Old Tafo Zongo Community in the Ashanti Region. The items included bags of rice, oil, canned foods and others. The gesture is to support government’s fight against COVID-19,” a post on the Chibsah Foundation Twitter handle reads.
In Ghana, government has voted to provide daily hot meals and dry food packages to up to 400,000 individuals who have been classified as “vulnerable” in the worst hit Greater Accra, Tema, Kasoa and the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan areas to alleviate their hunger as those parts of the country remain under a 3-week partial lockdown.
