Awiebo (WR),- The Nyamenlekwagyina District of the Church of Pentecost in the Ellembelle District of the Western Region has supported the Nzema Manle Child and Vulnerable Care Centre at Awiebo with food and other usable.
The gesture forms part of the Church’s vision to give back to society.
The items included, bags of rice, soft drinks, cassava, bunches of plantain, cleaning detergent, soap, toiletries and sachet water among others.
Additionally, the Church presented an undisclosed amount of money to the Orphanage.
Presenting the items to the Orphanage, the District Pastor of Nyamenlekwagyina District of the Pentecost Church, Mr. David Kweku Owodo said it was the culture of the Church to give back to society, so as to improve upon the lives of the poor and the needy.
He commended the owner of the Orphanage for the great vision to take care of the orphans in the Ellembelle District.
“What God like most is that you will care for the vulnerable…this is Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father, visiting the fatherless and widows in their affliction”.
He applauded the Founder, Pastor Paul Mukey and his wife for helping the Orphans.
Pastor Owodo condemned the act where young mothers rejected their newly born babies and dumped them anywhere.
The Pastor warned of God’s judgement and urged people to desist from the practice.
He also advised men who impregnate women and fail to take responsibility to change from the act.
Pastor Owodo after observing some challenges facing the Orphanage, promised to liaise with the church in general to support the centre in the future.
“I will take this opportunity to appeal to other benevolent individuals and NGOs to come to the aid of the Nzema Manle Child and Vulnerable Care centre to support these Orphans,” he said.
Director and Founder of the Nzema Manle Child and Vulnerable Care, Pastor Paul Mukey, expressed gratitude to the Nyamenlekwagyina District of the Church of Pentecost for the kind gesture.
Pastor Mukey pleaded with the government, NGOs, and other companies to come to their aid.
The Nzema Manle Child and Vulnerable Care at Awiebo in the Ellembelle District of the Western Region started operation some 22 years ago.
