Akim Swedru, Jan. 31, GNA- The Akim Swedru Nkosuo Kuo, a benevolent society in the UK, on Tuesday, presented assorted items and books valued at over 100 million cedis to the Akim Swedru Secondary School (AKISS), some basic schools and a local clinic in the town. The items included computers and accessories, sewing machines, home science equipment, refrigerators, chairs, toys, used clothing and wheelchairs.

Presenting the items, Mrs Joyce Konneh, an executive member of the association, announced that the group had instituted a scholarship scheme for citizens of the town, saying six students of AKISS were currently enjoying the scheme.
