Berndt Luther Foundation officials distributing rice and chicken to the Ash Town Kids during the Easter Monday party
Berndt Luther Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) at Ash Town, a suburb of Kumasi, on Easter Monday, provided over 1,000 children with food, drinks, toffees and biscuits at a party.
Children between the ages of three years and 10 from various parts of Ash Town were feted at the event christened ‘Kids Easter Party.’
Berndt Luther Foundation has for the past 10 years been organizing parties during Easter to ensure that the children at Ash Town also enjoy the festivities just like their compatriots across the country.
Speaking to DAILY GUIDE, Berndt Owusu, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the NGO, stated that he organized the event to give back to society.
Mr. Owusu, who was born and bred in Ash Town, said his foundation has been distributing chicken, bags of rice and other food items to the aged, widows, the sick and widowers during Christmas seasons for the past 10 years.
He stated that the NGO periodically pays the fees of some brilliant but needy students in the area.
“The Holy Bible says it is more blessed to give than to receive so I am just fulfilling the scriptures,” he indicated.
“I usually use my own money and funds from my friends, both in Ghana and abroad, to carry out the benevolent activities. I would soon partner Krokrome Foundation to support the needy in society.”
Oscar Osei Acheampong, Special Assistant to Mr Owusu, appealed to other bodies and well-to-do people in society to support Berndt Luther Foundation to help improve the lives of the needy in society.
