The Afram Plains Area Children’s Ministry of The Church of Pentecost has donated assorted items to the Donkorkrom Presbyterian Hospital Children’s and Maternity wards as well as the Donkorkrom Orphanage.
The items donated included baby diapers, soaps, drinks, biscuits, toilet rolls, rice, cooking oil, amongst others.
The event, which took place on December 30, 2020, was to show love to the children who found themselves in the hospital and the orphanage during the Christmas season.
The Area Children’s Ministry Leader, Pastor Stephen Larbi, in an address stated: “The reason for celebrating Christmas is tinged to the love that God showed us by giving His only begotten Son as a sacrificial lamb for our sins.” He added: “The love of Christ compels us to give genuinely with no strings attached.”
The Matron at the Donkorkrom Presbyterian Hospital, Mrs. Rosina Amoah, and the Caretaker of the Orphanage, Mrs. Erica Benyarko, who received the items on behalf of the hospital and the orphanage respectively, were delighted that the church had shown their facilities such act of benevolence.
Present at the event were Elder Princeworth Abankwa (Area Deacon who is also the Procurement Manager for the Donkorkrom Hospital), Elder Simon Yeboah (Assistant Area Children’s Ministry Leader), Mrs. Catherine Dicka Bonsu (Area Children’s Ministry Executive Committee Member), and Miss Portia Danyi (Children’s worker).
