TAMALE ARCHDIOCESE PARTNERS CARITAS GHANA TO ESTABLISH A PLASTIC PROCESSING PLANT.
The Archdiocese of Tamale in partnership with Caritas Ghana recently commissioned a Plastic Processing Plant in Tamale.
Prior to this project, the Archdiocese also in partnership with Caritas Ghana established an Electronic Waste Collection Centre in Tamale in February 2020.
Addressing the gathering during the commissioning of the new plant, the Archbishop of Tamale Most Rev. Philip Naameh said “these plants will address two important challenges confronting the country in general and northern Ghana in particular – youth unemployment resulting in rural-urban migration.”
He added that “the Archdiocese is very excited about this project and will work towards ensuring that the plant is constantly fed with plastic waste which is gradually taking over the farmlands and often causing flooding.”
Interacting with the Media, Mr. Samuel Zan, Executive Officer of Caritas Ghana mentioned that the establishment of the plant indicated a commitment to the core message of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Ci (On the Care of Our Common Home).”
A video report of the Commissioning of the Plant is available on YouTube via the “DEPSOCOM TV TAMALE” Channel.
