The members of the Council of Ewe Association of North America (CEANA) fraternity, have contributed $25,000 (equivalent to GHC 280,000) to help buy relief items for victims of the Akosombo and Kpong Dam Spillage.

This Thanksgiving is celebrated on every 4th Thursday of November each year after its inception back in 1621 to mark the a successful Harvest in the USA.

Speaking to the media, the President of the Council of Ewe Associations of North America (CEANA), Dr. Tsatsu E. Nyamadi expressed satisfaction and enthusiasm about that support received from the entire Members of the association.

He noted that, they believe this year’s Thanksgiving is an opportunity for them to support their brothers and sisters in Ghana who suffered from the recent flooding from the Akosombo and Kpong Dams Spillage that wiped away their home which promote them to do such contribution.

Dr Tsatsu E. Nyamadi in appreciating the members said, ” the executives of CEANA are most grateful for your continued support over the years and most especially, your support at the just ended CEANA convention held in Atlanta, GA”.

He therefore wished all members of the association a Happy Thanksgiving and urged them to stay safe and ensure incident free celebration.
