According to the GOC President, the donation was aimed at promoting and motivating the team ahead of the Olympic games qualifiers.

“As you know, the Black Queens are playing Olympic qualifier and I happen to be the president of Ghana Olympic Committee (GOC), so I said to myself, what ever I can do to help to qualify, I will do”, Nunoo Mensah told the press assembled.

“When I heard they were in camp and some of us that we are into so called least Finance sports, we know the challenges and the things that you go through when you are in camp”.

“Mercy Tagoe is my good sister so when I spoke to her on Thursday and she told me, they are in camp for an Olympic qualifier so if I can come and visit them, I said why not, so I spoke to some of the federation heads, and Ghana Rugby Football Union President, Mr. Herbert Mensah said, he will help to get some items on behalf of the federations.

Black Queens advanced to the next stage of Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifiers after easing past the les Panthers of Gabon by 5-0 aggregate.

The female Senior team of Ghana have been in camp for the past three weeks preparing for the qualifier against their counterparts from Kanya.

Items donated to the team included drinks and sanitary pads

The first leg is scheduled to be played at Accra Sports Stadium on Friday 4th October and the second leg in Kenya in a week later on 8th October, 2019.
