Little Angels Trust, a Non-Governmental Organisation, on Saturday donated food items to the Children’s Block of Korle-bu Teaching Hospital.
The items included Christmas toys, assorted drinks, biscuits and toffees.
The organisation also organised a health walk dubbed: “Love Walk” to create awareness of childhood cancer and show love to children who are terminally ill.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency, Mrs Lavinia Enim-Amui, Founder of the organisation, said the gesture was also in memory of two children who died of cancer at the children’s block.
She said the donation had been an annual affair, adding that last time it organised Christmas party for more than 400 children at the block, which brought smiles unto their faces.
Mrs Enim-Amui noted her deep passion for helping children who were terminally ill and to help provide them with an avenue to refocus and have positive future, drove her to make the donation.
She said the organisation had established a body called ‘Angelhood’ which comprised a team of dedicated, committed and passionate volunteers offering their skills, expertise and experiences for the common goal of responding to the needs of sick children.
She said the ultimate goal of Little Angel Trust was to have a home where special children with their families could find comfort, support, love and the care they needed at no cost to them.
Mrs Enim-Amui said for the past six year’s of it existence, Little Angle Trust had been able to support day-care centres and the children’s unit of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital.
She said the Trust had adopted and renovated the third floor of the Children’s Oncology Cancer Unit of Korle-Bu, where most of the children needed extra love, care and support.
Professor Bamenla Goka, Head of Department at the Children Block, thanked the organisation for the gesture and appealed to other corporate bodies and philanthropists to donate in support of children who are seriously ill. GNA
