The POS Foundation in collaboration with the Nana Churcher Foundation in the U.K has donated items to the Royal Seed Orphanage Home at Kwao Bondzie (Kasoa) in the Central Region of Ghana.
The Orphanage is home to over 200 children and adults who are equally receiving formal education with some in the tertiary institutions while others are being trained in technical and vocational fields.
Rev. Father Michael Quaicoe who represented the Nana Churcher Foundation admonished the children to stand firm for the Lord who brought them this far as he will continue to be with them.
He advised them to be obedient, hardworking and committed and cited examples of Ghanaians who were orphans but have made it through their efforts and commitment to changing their destiny.
Also, he called on individuals and organizations to support orphanages and widows in communities during this challenging period of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Executive Director of the POS Foundation, Mr Jonathan Osei Owusu also took time to educate the children on precautionary measures to observe during COVID-19 to avoid contracting the deadly coronavirus.
According to Mr Owusu:
“The most marginalized and affected communities or groups of persons in any pandemic such as the COVID-19 are Prisoners, Orphans, and Persons living with Disabilities and need assistance to survive”.
Also, he stated that the Foundation together with other organizations are committed to ensuring the vulnerable and less privileged are supported and given the necessary information to help prevent further virus spread.
The orphanage expressed appreciation of the kind gesture from the POS Foundation and Nana Churcher Foundation and called for other organizations and individuals to also do the same in supporting the vulnerable in the society in times like this.
What is the motive behind the orphanage home?
Founder of the orphanage home, Mrs Naomi Esi Amoah also shared her motivation behind the Orphanage’s establishment.
According to her, she had a dream of taking care of children who were not biologically hers and therefore saw it as a calling.
