56-year old man gives GH¢500 and gifts to widows at Kumasi Atimatim

56-year old man gives GH¢500 and gifts to widows at Kumasi Atimatim

The love of giving is in the air once again. Ghanaians are generous when it comes to Christmas and new year occasions. Many gives out generously to strangers without anything in return whiles others gives out only to family and friends. Mr. Abeam has shown the people of Atimatim that he is a man who gives to everyone. 


According Mr. Abeam who gave me a ten minutes interview, it is not about the popularity he will get or the fame he will receive in the eyes of the people but it is the grace of God he is looking out for. The women who were hit with the death of their husbands within Atimatim, was not left out for this Christmas season as Mr. Abeam surprised them all with love, gifts and money. 


If their husbands were alive, they would have be the ones taking care of them and once they are not here to take responsibility, it is up to us the men to show them love said Mr. Abeam. A widow is a woman who has lost her husband to death and there are many of them in the Atimatim township of the Kumasi Metropolis. 

Hampers in the form of 5kilo rice, cooking oil with sachet tomatoes were rapped in boxes along with GH¢500 in cash and was distributed to majority of the widows in the town. Mr. Abeam failed to tell me the number of gifts and cash delivered but the driver of the delivery Isaac said, he can't give specific number but he can assume, they were more than 1800 because their target was 2000. 


Isaac also told me that, as of 2pm this afternoon, they had delivered 1650 boxes and money to the widows. They will continue delivering until December 27. They locate the widows with posters of their dead husbands. According to Isaac, they took the list of all dead married men from the printing presses in Atimatim and that was how come they were able to locate most of the widows. They hope to reach more widows because they have information that makes it clear that, not all posters were made in the town and some are even made in Kumasi. 


Mr. Abeam told me it was not only him doing it but he was the major contributor in it. He gave me first names because they want their identity hidden from the public. Maame Ataa in USA, Fred in South Africa, Kwesi in Belgium and Yeboah in Russia were those helping him financially. They are all Atimatim natives. Each paid over $5,000 he said.
