Hundreds thronged the headquarters of Zoomlion Ghana Limited in Accra to indulge in the annual children party organized to fete children of Jospong Group of Companies employees.

The event which attracted over 300 children kicked off with a tour of the company’s facilities such as the Integrated and Recycling Plant (IRECOP), Sewerage System Ghana Limited (SSGL) and UPPR facilities.

In a brief speech, Mrs. Florence Larbi, Managing Director of Zoomlion said the annual event was an opportunity for the children to get firsthand information on where and how their parents make a living.

Mrs. Larbi who described the excited children as “honorary employees” stated that the event was way of celebrating the children during the yuletide.

“I hope that all of you remember your visit to the IRECORP, Sewerage System Ghana Limited (SSGL) and UPPR facilities. Well, let me tell you a short story about these facilities you visited. I am happy to tell you that SSGL where the moms and dads of some among you here come to work every day is one of the very important companies in Ghana and in the JOSPONG Group of Companies that is dedicated to making sure that all of us enjoy a hygienic environment through safe solid waste and faecal disposal.

She further enlightened children on how the SSGL also works hard to provide safe water for thousands of people who live in the southern parts of Accra.

“For 120 years, this water treatment project was abandoned so you should be proud that your parents who work there changed this sad story into a success story that has brought smiles on the faces of many people.

“Today, I am happy to tell you that SSGL treats and turns huge volumes of waste water into safe water before it is released into the sea every day,” she added.

Mrs Larbi enjoined the children to become good ambassadors for the clean, green and healthy Ghana dream like their parents.

The occasion which saw management members, including Managing Director of Zoomlion, Mrs. Florence Larbi, Corporate Affairs Director, Emma Akyea-Boakye attending was climaxed with other fun activities including music and dance contests with lots of food and drinks for everyone.
