Green Pastures Christian Evangelistic Foundation donates to orphanage
Green Pastures Christian Evangelistic Foundation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) based in Accra, has donated assorted items to the ‘In My Father’s Home’ orphanage at Akatsi in the Volta Region.
The donation forms part of the foundation’s yearly corporate social responsibility to help influence lives of children living in foster homes.
Some of the items donated to the ‘In My Father’s Home’ orphanage included bags of rice, sugar, stationery, kiddie chairs among others, which was to enhance living conditions at the foster home.
Mr Frank Amenyo, a Senior Caretaker of the foster home received the items on behalf of the Manager, Mr Joseph Mensah, and thanked the Green Pastures Christians Evangelistic Foundation for the worthy gesture and asked other foundations to emulate it.
In an interview with The Spectator, Mr Edward Sam Crabbe, Head of the Green Pastures Christian Evangelistic Foundation highlighted on the need for showing love to children living in foster homes, because they needed adequate attention and care to enable them harness their talents.
According to the lawyer, quality upbringing of children living in foster homes hinges on good nutrition, strict supervision and quality education.
“Since the inception of the foundation three years ago, we have made donations to several foster homes in Ghana, and this is to harvest souls for Christ,” he indicated.
Also, Miss Gloria Akuetteh, Director of Operations at Green Pastures Christian Evangelistic Foundation called on the need for proper monitoring of orphanage homes, in order to harness the potentials of the inmates to be responsible citizens in future.
On her part, government must monitor and evaluate the affairs of every orphanage home to ensure sanity and quality services at these homes.
She revealed that, the foundation has made two donations this year and would be embarking on a donation exercise soon to put smiles on the faces of the less privileged.
“We take care of both the spiritual and basic needs of people living in the orphanage homes by sharing the word of God with them to nourish their spirit for excellence,” she reiterated.
Mrs Loretta Crabbe, Vice President of Green Pastures Christian Evangelistic Foundation and Crabbe, Crabbe and Company, was part of the team who made the presentation.
