The Management of Delta Airlines (DAL) has announced they are in partnership with Habitat for Humanity (HfH), Ghana to build about 40 houses at Mowire, Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
Speaking with the media at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) in Accra, Madam Thonnai Elee, the spokesperson for Delta Airlines said: "40 volunteers would be spending their vacation time building houses in Ghana to help solve accommodation problems in the country."
"The project is part of the airline's new philanthropic program: Delta's Force for Global Good, which focuses on uniting employees and customers in support of philanthropic efforts throughout the world", she said.
As part of Ghana's building projects, Delta's volunteers, she said, would be donating some needed school materials to Mowire to facilitate their learning process.
The said items include text books, story books, pencils, rulers and writing paper, construction paper, small scissors school bags, and among others math sets.
"The Delta Force for Global Good leads our company in corporate citizenship and establishes meaningful partnerships that will promote and confirm our mission for global good", said Scarlet Pressley-Brown, the General Manager for Delta Community Affairs and leader of the Delta Force for Global Good.
He said, "Our employees and partners worldwide form a force for positive change dedicated to improving standards of living and quality of life for all mankind".
Madam Lisa Ellis, the African-Middle East Project Director for HfH said, "Habitat for Humanity Ghana has built over 5,000 housing units, and currently working on 8 houses as part of the sponsored 40 houses to be built".
The HfH Ghana, she said, has housed thousands of families in safe and affordable homes and they work in eight of the country's 10 regions and represent 135 communities.
The Resource Development and Communications Officer of HfH, Madam Naomi Ansah said the $100,000 project would help in providing affordable houses to the people living in the Mowire community and assist in eradicating poverty housing in Ghana.
The houses, she said, would be given to families and not individuals for a mortgage period of 10 years with about ¢150,000 monthly payment. The family applying for the house, she said, should be a resident in the community for some period of time and should have an annual income to make payment easier.
