In a momentous event at the Global Well Respected CEOs Awards held in Singapore, Bishop Dr Charles Cofie Hackman, renowned as the Helping Hand Man, was conferred with two distinguished awards – the Global Well Respected CEO in Disability Advocacy and the Global Well Respected CEO in the Manufacturing of Home Care Products.
Bishop Dr Charles Cofie Hackman, CEO of the H4P Organisation and DV Unlimited Company Limited, earned the recognition not only for his leadership in business but also for his unwavering commitment to philanthropy.
DV Unlimited, specialising in the manufacturing and distribution of home care and personal care products under the brand DV Kliners, uniquely channels all its proceeds into supporting persons with disabilities (PWDs).
This innovative approach aims to address the challenges faced by NGOs in securing funding for humanitarian efforts.

The former provides extensive support in education, finance, sports, health, and more to individuals and families affected by disability. The latter, being the first and only disability-focused TV show in Ghana, offers authentic education and advocacy on disability issues.
In addition to these initiatives, Bishop Dr Cofie Hackman has introduced groundbreaking events such as the H4P Inter-schools Disability Fun-Games, the Ability Praise Concert, and the Christina Hackman Impact Leadership Awards (C.H.I.L. Awards).
These platforms celebrate and recognise the talents and contributions of PWDs while fostering inclusivity.
