The Ashanti Regional Women’s organizer of the NPP, Nana Ama Ampomah on the 28th day of December donated two brand new wheel chairs, assorted children’s clothes, toiletries and food items to the Kings and Queens Home in Offinso.
The Home which is in the hinterlands of the Offinso South Municipality is haven for some children with autistic features and tendencies.
Making a presentation to the Home before partaking in the kids party she had put together by her Foundation, Nana Ama Ampomah noted the love she has for underprivileged children.
She noted having benefited from the goodness of a caring mother and father it was important that she shows same love to such special kids who have no one to fend for them.
“It is important that as people who have known the love of parents we show same love to these special kids who find themselves here”, Madam Ampomah tearfully stressed.
The Ashanti Regional NPP executive promised to periodically visit the Home to learn of their concerns and needs.
She noted that government can not attend to all the issues confronting the people in the society, adding they would rely on the benevolence of other private citizens to help.
The Ampomah Foundation, the women’s organiser disclosed was primarily established to cater for such cases so that government could also attend to other pressing matters of citizens.
Madam Ampomah hinted of plans to lobby for more support for the Home through her office as women’s organiser as well as head of the NGO she leads.
HEAD OF HOME:
Speaking to this reporter, Gabriel Yaw Asante, Head of the Home thanked the NPP executive for the gesture.
He noted that the donation was timely since the Home have had to struggle to cater for all the needs of the children.
He therefore appealed to other benevolent persons and organisations to emulate the gesture by Madam Ampomah to enable the home cater for the over 100 children that are residents.
Hon Abdallah Banda, MP for Offinso South promised to collaborate with the Regional as well as constituency executives of the party to provide support for the special Home.
He asked that the care-givers continue to give the kids the best of care at the Home.
