Somanya Presby Church assists orphanage

The Somanya Ebenezer Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana has presented various food items and a bale of second-hand clothing worth GH¢1,700.00 to the Blessed Bride Future Organisation, an orphanage at Asitey, near Odumase Krobo.

The food items included five maxi-bags of rice, three cartons of soap, two gallons of cooking oil, five packets of toilet rolls, 15 crates of minerals, one carton of milo, a carton of milk, and seven packets of biscuits.

The church also presented cash of GH¢500.00 in addition to the items. 

At the presentation, held at the orphanage, the District Minister of the Somanya Ebenezer Congregation of the Presbyterian Church, Rev. E. T. Muno, noted that the only way to show love to the orphans as a church was to help feed and clothe them.

He said taking care of orphans should be seen as the social responsibility of everybody including Christians. He explained that when proper care was taken of such orphans we might not have a lot of deviants who would be a worry to communities where they lived.

Rev. Muno, together with his assistant, Rev. Tetteh Addey, and some of the members of the church who interacted with the orphans, advised them not to see the absence of their parents in this physical world as the end of their lives.

“My dear young children, the fact that you have lost your biological parents does not mean the end of your lives. I am assuring you that we, as a church, shall always come to your aid as and when it becomes necessary,” Rev. Muno assured.

Rev. Muno also urged the orphans to be more serious in their various schools so as to become useful citizens for themselves, their various communities and mother Ghana  and help those who might also be in need in future.

He prayed for God’s love for the management of the home to enable them to take good care of the inmates.

The founder of the orphanage, Mr. Philip Anim, who received the items, was very grateful to the church for its kind gesture.

He said the orphans, numbering 47 were made up of 25 boys and 22 girls aged between three and 16. They were from various places such as Osudoku and Shai Hills in the Shai-Osudoku District of the Greater Accra Region and Yilo Krobo and Lower Manya Krobo municipalities.

Mr Anim said in spite of scarce resources, he put the orphans in the basic and senior high schools so that they could have formal education.

He was very grateful to the Krobo Chapter of Royal House Chapel, the Methodist Church, Ghana, the International Central Gospel Church, and volunteers from United Kingdom and Australia for occasionally supporting the home.

He appealed to other well-wishers and organisations to contribute to the running of the home.
