The Dusseldorf branch of the Resurrection Power and Living Bread Ministries International in Germany has donated items worth GH Â¢2,500 to the inmates of the Ashan Children's Home at Denase in the Afigya Kwabre district of the Ashanti Region.
The items include four bags of rice, 10 gallons of cooking oil, a quantity of tinned tomatoes, a bale of second hand clothing, shoes and toys, as well as biscuits, assorted drinks and oats.
The Acting Administrator of Resurrection Power and Living Bread Ministries International, Rev. Chief Amonoo, presented the items to the home on behalf of the donors at a ceremony last week Friday.
Rev. Amonoo, said that the presentation formed part of the social responsibilities of the Resurrection Power and Living Bread Ministries, which was committed to winning souls, including children, for Christ. "We want to tell the children that God loves them, and we will always be there for them."
The Chief executive Officer (CEO) of Ashan Children's Home, Nana Boafo-Yiadom, who received the gesture, thanked the church for the numerous gestures it had made to them.
He, however, called on other organisations, religious bodies and individuals to follow the example of the church, and support the inmates of the home.
According to Nana Boafo-Yiadom, even though most of the children were brought to the orphanage at the instance of the courts and Social Welfare, the home was not getting any support from the government since it was established 15 years ago.
He, therefore, made a passionate appeal to major stakeholders to come to their aid in the upbringing of the 67 inmates, the eldest being 20 years old, while the youngest is seven months old.
