NGO supports Catholic Charities with funds


The Edusei Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, has presented a cheque for GH¢50,000 to the Catholic Charities of Ghana at a ceremony in Accra.

Established by Dr and Mrs Kwame Bawuah-Edusei and family in May 2013, the foundation seeks to support the development and empowerment of women and children in society through training and skills development.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Derick Oppong-Agyare, Accra Representative of the foundation, noted that operating sustainable programmes had been the core business, since the inception of the programme, and it also included co-ordinating with its sister organisations in the United States and other NGOs to attain its goals.

Mr Oppong-Agyare said it had become necessary for the foundation to extend a hand to such institutions to bring relief to the Ghanaian youth.

He noted that the foundation had, in the past few months, supported the Fathers Home in Sekondi, Kumasi Children’s Home and Missionaries of Charity Children’s Home in Mbrom, Kumasi.

He said, the Osu Children’s Home in Accra and the Tamale Children’s Home were both supported early this year. 

Mr Oppong-Agyare said the foundation sought to use learning centres, workshops, donations and seminars to provide services geared towards educating and uplifting the beneficiaries to achieve their full potentials.

Rev. Fr Nicholas Afriyie, the Secretary General of the Catholic Secretariat, commended the Foundation for its kindness.

He challenged the foundation to continue to extend such support to societies, especially those geared towards the promotion of quality healthcare, education, good governance and economic growth.
