Twins donate to orphanage on birthday

Trotor (E/R)� Ms Esther Atayo and the twin brother, Mr Jacob Larweh Teino have donated foodstuffs and assorted items to the Baptist School Complex and Orphanage (BASCO) at Trotor, a community in the Suhum Municipality.

The school, which has kindergarten to basic three, currently have a student population of 115, of which 90 of the students are orphans and 50 are resident in the school.

The school and orphanage was established in August 1996 by Reverend Victor Ofori Amoah of the Body of Christ Baptist Church in Koforidua.

It all came about when the Rev. Minister upon a crusade held 22 years ago in the Trotor community, realized that most of the children were half naked and without proper care and management.

After the crusade, he planned with the church members and donated some cloths and foodstuffs to the people in the community and then decided to put up a home to care for the less privileged and started the school with six children.

The twins in an interview called on people to contribute their quota to care for underprivileged children.

The Administrator of the facility, Ms Vida Tetteh said her outfit was bedevilled with numerous challenges including inadequate teaching materials, food items, learning materials, clothing, mattresses and inadequate infrastructure to support the orphans.

She said the training centre, which was donated by Citi FM and its charitable listeners to give hands on skill training to the students in carpentry, masonry, electrical works, hairdressing and sewing lacked the needed tools and machinery.

She appealed to government, corporate bodies, philanthropist and the public to come to their aid so that the children could acquire the required skill training alongside the main academic work.
