Thanksgiving Message From The President Of The Council Of Ewe Associations Of North America (CEANA)…Tsatsu E Nyamadi , PhD.


Fellow members of the Council of Representatives (COR),  members of the CEANA fraternity, on behalf of the entire Executives of CEANA, I would like to wish you and your family a very Happy and safe Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving here in the US, marks an age-old American tradition, when friends and family gather to celebrate and give thanks for various reasons for which they are most grateful. 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.

While we celebrate, let us not forget the less fortunate ones amongst us and most especially the thousands of our brothers and sisters back home in the Eweland, who have been displaced, lost lives and livelihoods due to the catastrophic Akosombo Dam spillage. We, in CEANA, continue to be committed to providing the needed assistance to our brothers and sisters in the affected communities in Eweland.

CEANA have committed an initial $25,000 to provide some emergency relief assistance, but do not think that will be enough, we therefore appeal to you to continue to support CEANA to do more.

One of the core principles and mission of CEANA amongst others is to assist deprived communities through the facilitation of projects that target poverty alleviation, e.g., schools, health facilities. We will continue to do our part and edge all of you to join us achieve this lofty goal.

As you celebrate thanksgiving, let me also remind all of us about essence of getting together by quoting Chinua Achebe;

A man who calls his kinsmen to a feast does not do so to save them from starving. They all have food in their own homes. When we gather together in the moonlit village ground, it is not because of the moon. Every man can see it in his own compound. We come together because it is good for kinsmen to do so.

Please enjoy the festivities, we look forward to seeing all of you at the 2024 CEANA convention in Denver, Colorado.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Tsatsu E Nyamadi , PhD.; President CEANA.
