“BEAT THE COVID-19 PROJECT” in the Republic of Ghana, Africa, food and mask distribution support + mask production and employment support project for Japan
Providing mask manufacturing opportunities for people with disabilities and single mothers
This time, we received a request from Ezaki Glico Co., Ltd. to manufacture masks for the Japanese market, and provided employment opportunities to 40 employees locally employed by our company in the Republic of Ghana. Our company mainly employs people with disabilities and single mothers, and by ordering 1000 masks, we were able to provide them with a two-week job opportunity.
As of July 28, the number of people infected with the new coronavirus in the Republic of Ghana has increased to 33,624, and people's lives have become increasingly difficult since the lockdown was lifted in late April. Our employees have also stopped manufacturing export products for overseas, and in the harsh situation where job opportunities have decreased, we have been able to protect the "current" lives of our employees by being provided with employment opportunities. I made it.
“BEAT THE COVID-19 PROJECT”Implementing food and mask distribution support
On July 23rd, we used part of the profits from the mask manufacturing request to support the distribution of 1,000 meals of food and masks in the Agbogbloshi district in Accra, the capital of Ghana.
Agbogbloshie is located in the center of the capital city of Accra, a slum covered with a mountain of garbage, said to be the world's largest e-waste graveyard. In this area where the garbage thrown away by developed countries ends up in an area 32 times the size of Tokyo Dome and is filled with home appliances and electronic waste, we provide support to people who are in financial difficulty, and many people. We delivered nutrition and energy to survive now.
