The Resurrection Power and Living Bread Ministries International at Santasi in Kumasi, on Saturday, donated food items valued at GH¢2,000 to the inmates of the King Jesus Charity Home located at Boadi.
The items included bags of perfumed rice, a bag of sugar, tinned tomatoes, assorted drinks, cooking oil, toiletries and secondhand shoes, which were donated from the Church’s fund, with support from its international branches.
Speaking at the presentation, the acting General Administrator of the church, Rev. Chief Amonoo, said the donation formed part of the church’s annual policy to reach out to the poor and the destitute in society.
He said as a church, they were very much concerned over the plight of the children, and hoped the items, which were basic daily needs, would help the children enjoy a normal life, and bring smiles on their faces in the coming Christmas festivities.
Rev. Amonoo said had over the years, undertaken a number of social intervention programmes, including the organisation of free medical screening and donations to the Kumasi Children’s Home.
He said the association would continue to assist the home, and appealed to other organisations and philanthropists to also do same.
Rev. Kofi Owusu Afriyie, who received the items, said the donation had come at an opportune time, since the children were in dire need of groceries and other food items.
He lamented that the home was going through financial and logistical challenges, and appealed to churches and other social organisations to come to its aid.
