The Chinese Embassy has donated ¢50,000 to the Appiatse Support Fund established to rebuild the Appiatse community and support victims of the explosion.

This was disclosed by the Chairperson of the five-member Committee established to manage the Fund, Dr Joyce Aryee, on The Pulse on Tuesday.

“Today, we collected ¢50,000 from the Chinese Embassy. They called us to come and collect, and so it’s coming up gradually,” she noted.

According to her, the Fund has so far received a ¢2m pledge from the Minerals Commission, a personal donation of GH₵100,000 from President Akufo-Addo, ¢61,000 from Pillangeo and an amount of ¢50,000.

She also noted that currently, the Ghana Commercial Bank account opened in the name of the Fund has an amount of about ¢68,000 while the Stanbic Bank account has about ¢150,000.

Dr Joyce Aryee further called on Ghanaians to assist with donations to the Fund to support the victim and rebuild the community.

Persons can donate at GCB Bank with the account number 101130036123 and Stanbic Bank with the account number 9040009974967.

The Committee has also created a website so donors can contribute their quota by accessing it.

“We recognise that we live in a modern era. So we have a website: www.apiatsesupportfund.com. We can even pay on the website by using https//marketplace.usebillbox.com/096. That is for Stanbic Bank,” Rev. Aryee said.
