Mining firm, Newmont Ghana has supported United Way Ghana (UWG) to further their work in supporting the underprivileged
Newmont donated a vehicle and a cash amount of GH¢120,000 through the company’s “Workplace Giving Program”.

In a press release, Newmont said its Regional Vice President, Human Resources, Dave Kern at the donation ceremony in Accra, said the support is to help spur on UWG to achieve greater levels of impact in the lives of the underprivileged.
“We are making a formal presentation of our 2011 Workplace Giving contributions of GH¢120,000, made up of our employees’ contribution of GH¢60,000, and our company’s equal match-up of GH¢60,000 and a vehicle to help you undertake various projects in the charities our employees have chosen to support,” Dave Kern said.
