The Bekwai District of the Assemblies of God Church (Ghana) has donate food items costing GH¢50,000 and GH¢200 cash to Save Our Ghana Orphanage at Ahwiankwanta near Bekwai, as part of its programme for the Easter festivities.
The items include four bags of rice, toilet rolls and soaps, four boxes of key soap, cooking oil, tins of sardine, tinned tomato puree, Milo, Calypo fruit juice, washing powder, toothpaste and brushes.
Pastor Baffuor Gyambrah Acquah, District Pastor, performed the presentation, and explained that the gesture was part of the church’s social responsibility, as it celebrates the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who died for mankind, hence, the show of love by for the needy in society.
He appealed to Christians to always think about the needy and the less privileged in society, for God to show them mercy and bless them abundantly.
He also appealed to the general public especially the youth to be mindful and cultivate the habit of self discipline and self control in all their endeavors.
The Pastor noted that the lack of self control on the part of the youth had led some irresponsible parents to abandon their children to their fate, a situation which had led to some becoming inmates the of the Home through no fault of theirs.
Mr. Isaac Bannie Cooke, Manager Director of the Home, commended the leadership and membership of the church for the kind gesture, and appealed to other societies groups and corporate bodies to emulate the Assemblies of God Church.
He said the Home had about 89 inmates, ranging from six months to 20 years.
According to the manager, one of the inmates had completed university, while three were currently at the tertiary level, with four each in the Senior and Junior High schools.
