How Obuasi kroye kuo of Virginia USA started
In 2006, Ghanaians from Obuasi residing in USA decided to come together to form a group. That idea gave birth to Obuasi kroye kuo of Virginia USA. Their aim was to foster cordial relationship and assist themselves in times of need. Over the past years, they have been able to assist members in dire situations.
This time around, they took a step further to help the Obuasi community and they promised that more donations would follow.
The President of the group is Akwasi Adampa with Akwasi Obeng as their Coordinator.
