Orphanage Support

The President of the Ghana Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), Nana Appiagyei Dankawoso I and Mr Kofi Nsiah-Poku, the Executive Chairman of Kinapharma Limited have jointly donated assorted items to the Awutu-Bawjiase Children’s Welfare Home.

The items worth over GH¢12,000.00 included dresses and footwear, bags of rice and maize, packs of sanitary materials, gallons of cooking oil, skin and hair care products, boxes of fruit juice and biscuits, boxes of bathing and washing soap, confectioneries, packaged water and bags of onion.

A party and dancing competition were also organised for the home as part of the donors’ effort to make the New Year festivity a remarkable one for the children.

Mr Nsiah-Poku, also donated a cash amount of GH¢5,000.00 to the Home for registration of all the children and their caretakers onto the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

Nana Dankawoso I, said “I considered to support the poor, needy and vulnerable eleven years ago and developed a passion to support an orphanage widows and prisoners”.

He said there was a stipulated amount of money donated to the Nsawam and Kumasi Central Prisons with assorted items including metabolic soap every year especially because the Prisoners often faced skin problem challenges.

He said for eleven years, “I saw it as a responsibility to support the Country-Side Children’s Welfare Home which found it challenging to feed the children at certain times, hence the reason for the constant benevolence.

“I have adopted some children here and I have sponsored many of them through Universities and Senior High Schools for the very reason that, they don’t need to be deprived of their basic rights because they are orphans,” he said.

Nana Dankawoso I, said, “It’s a pleasure and so satisfying to come to their aid and support because it’s just by the grace that I was not one of them. So it’s our duty and call to make sure that we bring them out of their vulnerability”.

Mr Nsiah-Poku said he only accompanied Nana Dankawoso I to the Home last year and the condition of the children triggered him to support them.

“So I promised that every year, around Christmas I would visit them and give them medication and drinks. I also promised to pay their medical bills,” he said.

He also gave the assurance that he was going to donate first aid materials to the Home every quarter.

Mr Nsiah-Poku, who is also the Managing Director of Healthilife Beverages Limited, said he would give packs of drinks to the Home every quarter so that the children would not only consume beverages on festive seasons.

“So that they would also feel as if they are in their own homes just like how we give our children drinks when they are going to school,” he said.

Mr Osei Owusu, the Administrator of the Home who received the items on behalf of the Home expressed their profound gratitude to the donors and prayed for long life as well as the growth of the works of their hands.

The Country-side Children’s Welfare Home is a privately owned Orphanage home located in Awutu-Bawjiase in the Central Region with over 120 children. The Home has accommodation, school and sporting facilities for the children.
