The Member of Parliament of Tarkwa-Nsuaem, George Mireku Duker has taken a major step towards boosting the personal development of his constituents by donating 300 industrial sewing machines, and 150 hair dryer machines to 450 women in his constituency.
This donation is a continuation of a plan which is already in motion, and aimed at elevating the living standards of people of the constituency, and reducing poverty in the area. The MP, since his election, has put hundreds of people through skill training and equipped them afterwards to start their own businesses.
The event formed part of his usual weekend visits to the constituency and saw the MP donating 400 pieces of cloth to 400 traders at the Tarkwa Central Market ahead of this year’s mother’s day celebration.
According to George Mireku Duker, before the donation, he had engagements with the women’s caucus of the NPP Tarkwa-Nsuaem which comprised all women holding polling station executive positions.
Speaking in an interview, he said he donated the 300 industrial sewing machines, and 150 hair dryer machines upon request.
