At Minerex, we are proud to be involved in several CSR initiatives:
The Ghana Twins Foundation (GTF) was founded by Zeena Abou-Jaoude and her late twin sister Maya Abou-Jaoude in June 1999.
It is a non-governmental organization promoting the social and economic well-being of deprived and needy twins in the Ghanaian society, giving support to the challenges facing parents in raising twins and multiple births. Its objective is to increase awareness of the special needs of twins and advocate for their rights.
