En conférence de presse ce lundi à Lomé, le sieur LIMAZIE Péyébinesso, président de l’ACTE, a exprimé sa gratitude à tous ceux qui ont de diverses manières participé à cette initiative, qui vise à redonner l’espoir aux victimes des marchés du Togo. ”En commun accord avec l’Association des Commerçantes du Togo (ACT) et des minisrtères partenaires, la destination des fonds sera clairement définie pour soulager les peines des sinistrés”, a indiqué le premier responsable de l’association “ACTE”.
