Miss Tourism Ghana Donates to vulnerable to mark Mother’s Day
In keeping with their annual Mother’s Day tradition, the Miss Tourism Ghana team honoured new mothers and babies at the Margret Marquart Catholic Hospital with baby products.
They also shared enough food supplies to prepare a feast for the children and staff at the Countryside Orphanage at Bawjiasie in the Central Region, as well as The United Children’s Home, Stitching Missahoe Wonder and Ryvanz-mia Childcare International, all based in Kpando.
In addition, the team gave cash donations and cloth masks to the Village of Hope Orphanage, Countryside, as well as various individuals who called on the organisation for help in the challenging economic landscape made even severe due to restrictions imposed by the government to curb the outbreak of the coronavirus.
“Every year, we travel to the Volta Region to present the gifts and serve the children and staff, but because of the pandemic, we donated the items on behalf of the hospital and orphanages to the MP of Kpando, Honorable Della Sowah. A Representative of Countryside Orphanage, Mr Osei, also accepted the donations in Accra, where the Miss Tourism Ghana Organisation is headquartered,” Celestina Baffour-Obeng the reigning Miss Tourism Ghana explained.
“Our mission is to empower young women to reach their highest potential. What’s more empowering than helping another human being in need?,” Delphine Brew-Hammond, Director of Events and Operations for the Miss Tourism Ghana Organisation quizzed.
She expressed her appreciation to sponsors, Lele Foods, GTP, and Mr Tekle Menelik, General Manager of Max International for the support for people in these difficult times.
