Four host communities of a Chinese gold mining firm operating in the Talensi District in the Upper East Region, Cardinal Namdini Mining Limited have received 6 tricycles aimed at addressing transportation challenges. The beneficiary communities include Accra Site/Digaare, Biung, Tolla, and Bapella.

Emmanuel Kofi Adusei, the Community and Social Responsibility Manager of the company said the donation of the tricycles comes as a response to the transportation needs of the host communities, particularly in facilitating the movement of farm produce from farms to market centers.

With limited access to the transportation system, Mr. Adusei said the community members, especially, the women have faced significant challenges in transporting their agricultural products to market, impacting their livelihoods and economic opportunities.

“We advise the communities to put in place committees to run and manage the tricycles. They can charge tokens when the women use the service so that they can buy fuel and maintain them. All the 6 cost the company Ghc 112,600.00 including registration of the tricycles”, he advised.

He expressed optimism that the gesture would reduce post-harvest losses, improve food security, and reduce poverty among the community members. Receiving the gesture on behalf of the Digaare community, Jeffrey Asunda said the tricycles would reduce stress “especially women who sometimes have to carry these farm produce on their heads home or wait on the roadside to no avail of means of transport.”

Representing the Bapella community, Asoore Abane Clement thanked Cardinal Namdini Mining Limited for the support.

“Our market is very far and as a result, our food always spoils on the farm. So, the tricycles will help us to carry our food home. It will also help us to carry water to the farms for pesticide application. So, we thank the company for this gesture.”

Cardinal Namdini Mining Limited which has a 15-year mine license, subject to renewal, will pour its first gold in the last quarter of 2024. Vice President of Cardinal Resources Ghana Limited, Feng Boali called for collaboration from the community members as the company is progressing from its construction stage to production stage. He assured the community members, especially, the youth of job opportunities and development projects when the company commences production.
