Victory Presbyterian congregation donates to Rising Star Orphanage

The Young People Guilders (YPG) of the Victory Presbyterian Church, Kwashiebu has donated assorted relief items to the Rising Star Orphanage Home at Dodowa in the Eastern Region.

The items included boxes of drinks, cartoons of milk, tins of milo, sugar, biscuits, baby food, four boxes of noodles, 10 bags of sachet water and gallons of oil.

The also included were bags of gari, beans, maize, two buckets of detergent, and boxes of bathing and washing soap.

A statement from the YPG to the Ghana News Agency noted that Mrs Antoinette Ohene Atitse, President of the YPG, said the support came from the elders of the church, who mobilised the items to improve the lives of the little orphans.

She said the exercise was undertaken with encouragement from the Church, which taught members to care for orphans and widows.

According to the statement, Madam Victory Sampson, the Founder of the Orphanage, expressed her profound gratitude to the YPG for the kind gesture.

She said overcrowding at the home made it difficult for them to accept more vulnerable children explaining that about 55 of the children slept in an old room built in 1824.

She appealed to government, corporate bodies and philanthropists to support them with housing facilities.
