A Non Governmental Organization (NGO) in Kumasi, Michael A. Tuffour Charity Foundation has donated food items worth GHC1, 300 to an orphanage, Remar Ghana Christian Rehabilitation Center at Patasi.
The rationale behind the charity is to feed the orphans in this hard time of pandemic COVID-19.
Relief packages such as bags of rice, cooking oils, assorted drinks, milks, detergents, toilet rolls, and many others at an estimated price of GHC1, 300 were presented.
The Foundation’s mission is to improve upon the welfare of the vulnerable.
The kind gesture was made on behalf of the founder by the Foundation’s organizer, Mr Akwasi Adjei.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who doubles as President of the Foundation, Mr Micheal Tuffour, a U.S and Ghanaian citizen later in an interview with the media on Skype said, “It’s very difficult for Children homes to feed orphans in this difficult era of Covid-19, so my foundation saw it necessary to donate to this home”.
He further stated that the organization is committed to extend its helping hands to the needy across Ghana in the years ahead.
“Though I’m not living in Ghana, yet I have a great affection for Ghanaians, so I think it is prudent for us to offer some help in the very small way to support the poor in this trying times of covid-19,”he expressed.
He pleaded with all Ghanaians to adhere to social distancing and other protocols which have been outlined by Government of Ghana, a move to mitigate the spread of the virus.
Mr. Enock Osei Jackson, administrator of Remar Ghana Christian Rehabilitation Center who received the stuff for the home expressed many appreciations to the foundation for the endowment.
He said the Orphanage is confronted with enormous challenges therefore all stakeholders should assist to wipe out their burden.
