The presentation was done by Herman and received by the head coach of Ghana Wheelchair Tennis, Yahya Macculey at the Accra Sports Stadium Media Center.
The Ghana Wheelchair Tennis Team is preparing to compete in this year’s African Paralympic Games, which will be hosted in Ghana.
Speaking to the players, Herman said, growing up, and have been told that, the more you make sure other people are okay, God is going to make sure you are also okay.
“You can bear witness to the fact that we are in a country where the least financed sports are not properly managed.
We just won the Davis Cup, and we have promoted Ghana to Group III. We go around thanking people and receiving souvenirs from benevolent people. I thought it wise to give mine to the physicality challenge.
I want to thank you, guys, for not letting your disabilities push you down. My foundation will keep supporting Ghana’s wheelchair tennis” he expressed.
He added that the donation of jerseys was to motivate the players and give them hope that they are noticed and that they should do their best.
He also thanked thank Robert Kocisnki for his continues support to Herman Abban Foundation.
Coach Yahya Macauley on behalf of the team, expressed their sincerest gratitude for the gesture.
