Potters Village holds annual thanksgiving service

The Potters Village, a charitable organisation which aims at empowering vulnerable women and children to ensure harmonious living in homes and communities, has held its annual thanksgiving service at Dodowa.

The Chairperson of the Children’s Department of the Korle-Bu Community Chapel, Mrs Regina Kotei, said Christmas was not all about merrymaking.

“We are here with our Sunday School Children to share the message of Christ”, she added.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, she stated that it was the church’s policy to visit an orphanage during Christmas, to put smiles on the faces of the vulnerable.

Mrs Kotei, on behalf of the church, donated some food items and toiletries, as well as an undisclosed amount of money to the home.

The founder of the Potters Village, Dr (Mrs) Jane Irina Adu, thanked God for giving her the vision and strength to cater for the inmates of the orphanage.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, she revealed that no life had been lost ever since she started this initiative, and pointed out that catering for the needy was a social responsibility which contributed to national development.

Mrs Adu expressed her gratitude to individuals and institutions that had supported the home in various ways throughout the year, and appealed to benevolent individuals and organisations to come to their aid, especially in relation to their project of moving to a new residence.
