HE Restoration Christian Family Church at Adenta, T in Accra, has presented a number of food and other items to the Christ Faith Foster House at Fafraha, near Accra. The presentation formed part of activities of the church to mark the Easter festivities. Rev Kingsley Duncan Arhin, Head Pastor of the church, advised the children at the foster home not to be worried about the absence of their biological parents, but concentrate on their studies.
He said children, as gifts of God, should be taken good care of, and appealed to all to help in their upbringing. The Supervisor of the home, Madam Henrietta Asare Agyeman, who received the items, thanked the church for coming to the children’s aid, and appealed to other individuals for such assistance.
compounds had been constructed in a number of communities in the municipality in recent times, and explained that the motorbikes and the other items would help the health workers to deliver on their mandate. He impressed upon the beneficiary communities to help improve quality health delivery in the areas.
The Municipal Director of Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. John Abenyeri, thanked the assembly for the gesture, and said the assembly over the years, had been supportive of the GHS at the terms of provision of working tools. He said the donation of the motorbikes was not only timely, but also appropriate, stressing that it would go a long way to help the nurses to get to remote communities.
Dr. Abenyeri urged the staff to handle the motorbikes and other items with care, and maintain them regularly to ensure their longer lifespan.
