Mr. Ampofo Twumasi-Ankrah, the father of Aseda, expressed gratitude to the company for their generous donation. Twumasi-Ankrah, who is a Sales Executive at UT Life Insurance, said he did expect any reply when he sent a letter to the bank with his plea.

We sent letters to over 25 companies, and UT Bank is the first to actually reply and come to our aid. My wife and I want to thank the company so much for what you [UT Bank] have done for us,” Twumasi-Ankrah said.
