Members of the Millennium Intellectuals Foundation, an NGO based in Asutsuare in the Greater Accra Region led by their CEO and president, Deacon James Akunor on Sunday 8th May, presented assorted items to the family of a deceased woman as part of the mother's day celebrations.

The presentation of the items was aimed at offering a hand of support to the foster mother of the children, 29-year-old Elizabeth Azumah to enable her and the father adequately cater for the six-month-old twins.

The late mother of the twins, Esinam Soglo died during labour in October, 2021 delivering the babies named Liliana Sefakor Afemeku and Lilian Sefadzi Afemeku.

The items presented included packs of toilet rolls, soap, clothing, bags of rice, etc. and an undisclosed amount of cash, all amounting to about Ghc2500.

The presentation of the items was witnessed by members of the family, community, and leadership of The Lord's Pentecostal Church International at Frankadua in the Eastern Region.

The late Esinam Soglo died of complications while in labour at the Peki Government Hospital in the Volta Region on the 31st of October, 2021.

President of the Millennium Intellectuals Foundation, Deacon James Akunor speaking in an interview after the donation said the group found it necessary to mark the day with the orphans with a show of love. "We find ourselves here today to mark the mother’s day with gifts since they lost their mother some months ago and we deem it necessary to mark this day with them so we intend as a group to gather here to show our love,” said the group leader.

He explained that the plight of the twins and the foster mother came to the attention of the group during a restoration conference at nearby Juapong in the Volta Region.

The group, touched by the situation, decided to offer a hand of support.

Mr. Akunor said the solidarity shown would go a long way to reduce the burden on the family by supporting madam Elizabeth Azumah in caring for the twins, adding that this act of charity would not be the group’s last towards the upkeep of the children.

He called on members of the general public to emulate the gesture shown by the NGO by contributing their quota towards supporting the children.

The Deacon also urged members of the community and extended family not to shirk the responsibility of raising the kids to the foster mother and father of the kids alone but support them in whatever way they could to ensure that the children grow up to become responsible adults.

29-year-old Elizabeth Azumah who does not yet have children of her own said that the sad news and taking over the motherly role of the children has not been easy, she is nevertheless coping with the situation.

She extended her profuse gratitude to her benefactors, adding that the show of magnanimity would go a long way to assist her support the children.

She called for assistance for her and the father of the children to enable them to raise the children.

Father of the twins and a mason by profession, Gershon Afemeku also thanked Millennium Intellectuals for the gesture and appealed to the general public to come to their aid to give the children a bright future.

Mother’s day is celebrated in May every year around the world to honour mothers and motherhood.

Millennium Intellectuals was founded in 2018 with the objective of coming to the aid of the needy. The NGO has similarly extended its charity works to the Akuse Prisons in the Eastern Region and the Three Kings Special School at Battor in the Volta Region.

Their motivation stems from the biblical doctrine which urges Christians to give generously to the needy.
