The Takoradi Area of The Church of Pentecost on Thursday, February 4, 2021, made separate donations to the Ghana Prisons Service Regional Headquarters at Sekondi-Takoradi and the Egyam Children’s Home at Beahu near Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana.
The items, worth over GHS 16,000.00, were singlehandedly financed by a member of The Church of Pentecost residing in Accra who has pleaded for anonymity. The donations were, however, made on her behalf, by the Area Head, Apostle Joseph Kwame Assabil, together with his wife, Mrs. Rebecca Assabil, the Area Deacon, Elder Daniel K. Quaye, and the Takoradi Area pastorate
The assorted items presented to the orphanage home included cartons of meat, toiletries, biscuits, gallons of cooking oil, packets of diapers, bags of rice, bags of maize, boxes of key soap, buckets of washing powder, cartons of soft drinks, among others.
Sister Mary Gladys Boakye who received the items on behalf of the orphanage was full of praise for the kind gesture.
At the Ghana Prisons Service, 30 bags of cement, 102 boxes of tiles, 40 bags of tiles cement, 23 Bibles (both English and local languages), three packets of toiletries, six packets of sanitary pads, five boxes of Medisoft Dettol, boxes of Madar antiseptic and disinfectants, 50 pairs of bathroom slippers, 30 ladies’ dresses, 47 men’s pyjamas, seven dozens of ladies’ underwears, 100 pieces of boxer shorts, ten packets of bottled drinks, five buckets of washing powder, boxes of key soap, a bag of sugar, two bags of gari, among others, were presented to the inmates.
In an interview with PENTECOST NEWS, Mrs. Rebecca Assabil indicated that a benevolent member of the Church saw the need to refurbish the washroom at the Ghana Prisons Service Regional Headquarters at Sekondi-Takoradi into an ultramodern facility and to also put smiles on the faces of orphans at Egyam home; and beckoned on the Area to do that on her behalf.
The Takoradi Area Head, Apostle Joseph Assabil, on his part, reiterated the commitment and continued support of The Church of Pentecost towards the welfare of prison inmates and the Ghana Prisons Service.
Receiving the items on behalf of the service and the inmates, ADP Yayra Ashong Mettle, expressed heartfelt gratitude to the donor and the Church for the timely visit.
