Miss Emma Amoafo, a 21- year old Ghanaian medical student in London, on Wednesday donated a quantity of food items and provisions worth GHȼ 1,150.00 and an amount of GHȼ 600.00 to the Bless Orphanage Home at Kwahu Nkwatia.
The items including six bags of rice, six boxes of key soap, 25 liters of cooking oil, canned fish, and boxes of biscuit, soft drinks and tins of tomatoes were for the upkeep of the 27 orphans in the home.
Miss Amoafo said funds for the items were raised from her “Friday Born” Fashion Design Project, which she uses pieces of Kente and other Africa fabrics to design different kinds of dresses for sale in London.
She said she decided to donate the items and the money to the orphanage home when she visited the place last year and saw the plight of the children.
Miss Amoafo said she would continue to assist the children at the orphanage whenever she was able to raise adequate funds.
The Director of the Orphanage, Reverend Jeremiah Yeboah, thanked Miss Amoafo for the gesture and gave assurance to put the items and the money to effective use to improve the living condition of the children.
He said the Orphanage, which was constructed by an American Evangelist with 12 children now have 27 children some of whom had completed second cycle schools.
Rev Yeboah appealed to non-governmental organizations, philanthropists and the well- to- do in the society to contribute towards the running of the home. GNA
