In an exhortation,  the District Women’s Ministry Leader, Deaconess Isabella Orhin quoted Psalm 46:1-5 and Psalm 3:3 and encouraged the children to see God as their ultimate helper and the source of their daily provision.

 God touches the heart of people who come here to help, hence do not think your help is from them but God,” she said. She encouraged the children to lead a life worthy of emulation  so they become responsible and good adults in society and the world at large.

Receiving the items on behalf of the orphanage, Nii Afotey Botwe II, who is the Head of the Orphanage was grateful to the Ministry for the visit  inspite of the economic challenges posed by Covid 19.

He requested for individuals and other organizations to also come along to support the home. According to him, families interested in adopting children from the home can contact the Social Welfare for directives on the procedures.

Pastor Anthony Kwarteng on his part prayed fervently for the children in the  home asking God to intervene in their spiritual , academic, health, emotional and physiological lives. He also prayed and committed the caretakers and workers of the orphanage to God for them to have a good heart in taking care of the children.
