Bernard Amankwah making the donation to Mrs Christian Addo
Enterprising Ghanaian gospel musician, Bernard Amankwah has donated musical instruments and other items to the Osu Children’s home.
The donation worth GHc15,000 the musician noted, is part of efforts to set up a music school for the facility which provides home and shelter for orphans.
Items Bernard Amankwah, who is the founder of His Presence Ministry, donated included, three keyboards, set of drums, two cordless microphones, one power mixer, two long range speakers, two speaker stands, two microphone stands, boxes of water and bags of detergents.
At the ceremony, the gospel musician, who also donated bibles to the home, explained that most people make donations to orphanages with just the basic needs of the children in terms of food in mind, neglecting their spiritual needs.
He noted that the donation of the musical instruments was inspired by the fact that “just as every church sees it fit to get sound equipment and instruments to enhance their service, these little ones also deserve to praise God with instruments and sounds”.
The items were received by Mrs Christina Addo, administrator of the Osu Children’s Home. Mrs Christina Addo after receiving the items thanked the musician for his generosity and promised that the items will be used for the intended purpose.
The Osu Children’s Home donation is part of an annual initiative by Bernard Amankwah to give back to the needy.
Last year, the musician put smiles on the faces of the children of the Village of Hope at Gomoa Fetteh in the Central Region.
He donated several items including sound equipment, bags of rice, detergents, mineral water – worth over GH¢ 10,000 to the facility.
