A philanthropist, Mrs Esther Hamilton, on behalf of her family, has donated a high duty three-phase generator worth 5,000 US dollars to the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church at Abelenkpe on Sunday.

This is to solve the perennial power outages that had affected the church for years.

Mrs Hamilton who was the former headmistress of Apam Senior High School and proprietress of The Star of the East International School at Kasoa, said the donation was in fulfillment of a request made to the family during the burial of the late Mrs. Lucy Peprah Tawiah, her twin sister in December, 2016.

The late Mrs Peprah Tawiah, herself a philanthropist, and a friend of the media, was murdered in cold blood without any provocation by her houseboy, Onsman Yakubu, a Burkinabe, on November 2016.

Mrs. Hamilton said, it was the intention of the family to continue the good and humanitarian work, her late sister was doing, by taking care of orphans and the less-privileged in society.

Very Rev. Father Anthony Agnes Adu Mensah, Chancellor of the Accra Archdiocese and Rev. Father Precious Nutsugah, Parish Priest of the Abelenkpe Catholic Church jointly received the generator on behalf of the church.

They expressed appreciation for the kind gesture, adding that, the generator was so powerful that, it could take care of the entire church, the vestry, the reverend fathers’ residence, and all the electrical gadgets at a go.

Very Rev. Anthony Adu Mensah said the generator came at the right time, because it would help to promote God’s work on a continuous basis without any power disruptions from the mains.
