Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Emmanuel Congregation, North Darkuman has donated some household and food items to the Akropong School for the Blind.
The items included 5 bags of rice, 2 cartons of milk, one carton of cooking oil, one carton of tin tomatoes, one bag of sugar, one bag of gari, six cartons of laundry soap, bails of second hand clothing, 50 pieces of toilet rolls and over 500 writing blind sheets for studies.
The donation marked the climax of activities in commemoration of the end of the Lent program which kick-started with a 40 days fasting and prayers by the entire Emmanuel Congregation members in February this year.
According to the Minister in Charge of the congregation, Rev. Charles Adom Darkwa, the gesture was their social and religious responsibility.
“We are also making this donation to commemorate the 30 years anniversary of the Emmanuel Congregation but equally important is the fact that we want to honour and appreciate God for His love towards us during the Lent Season” he stressed.
The Minister indicated that as a Church they understand the difficulties associated with taking care of children with special needs.
Rev. Charles Adom Darkw further appealed to individuals to share their joy and blessings with the Akropong School for the Blind and called on government and policy makers to resource the school because the institution had made enormous contribution to the human capital development of the nation.
He lauded the efforts of the management of Akropong School for the Blind in the achievements of the school over the years despite the challenges.
The Assistant Headmaster of the school, Mr. Atsu Homadzi thanked the Church for sharing the blessings of the 30 years of their establishment with the blind students and the school. He appealed to individuals and institutions to emulate the example of the Congregation.
