The Catholic Students Union, (CASU) of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, Awoshie Anyaa has donated assorted items to the Human Compassion Organization as part of their outreach programme.
The donation to the Home was made possible by the contribution of some members and parishioners of the church.
The items included: clothes, packs of washing soaps and powders, toothbrushes, toothpastes, boxes of Indomie, cartoons of milk, ‘This Way’ products, Nestle products, some canned drinks, pastries as well as an undisclosed amount.
Explaining the purpose of the visit, the Leader of the team, Thomas Quaye Jnr cited the passion to cultivate the habit of giving to the less privilege as the main motivating factor for the gesture .This he said was to inculcate among its members the culture of giving and assisting the needy in their communities and society at large.
He expressed joy and humility in being of service to all, particularly the less privileged like children in the orphanage.
‘As Christians, our Lord Jesus Christ through the church has provided a way for us to care for the poor and needy and it required of us to give generously according to what we have received from God’, he said.
‘We are students, and most of us take pocket monies from our parents but nothing stops us from sharing a part of the little we receive with others who are in need, he said’, adding that little is much wealth in the eyes of the less privileged.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Home, the Director of the Orphanage, Mr. Daniel Boye Mensah expressed profound gratitude towards the thoughtful gesture by students and called on other benevolent individuals and organization to emulate the gesture.
The Human Compassion Home is an orphanage located at Pokuase-Mayera, a suburb of Accra which houses children between the ages of 2-17years.
The organization was established by the late Mrs. Linda Akyaa Mensa at Ofankor in 2005. Currently, it has seventeen children excluding those who have been gone through secondary school and are now trading or learning a profession.
The Home also has an HIV/AIDS Adult Support Group, eighty-four (84) in membership who are not resident but do meet at the orphanage monthly for counseling on how to maintain their health as well as to deal with stigmatization.
