Accra, Jan. 19, GNA – The Princess Fornah Network, a Christian Support Network, has donated assorted items worth GH¢4,000.00 to the Teshie Children’s Home as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility and a means to celebrate the New Year with the less privileged.
The items included sanitary towels, bathing and washing soap, detergents, bottles of bleach, dresses, cooking oil, bags of rice, tin tomatoes, drinks and biscuits, and cartons of milk and Milo.
The gesture was a channel through which the Network showed the love of God, kindness and charity to the children to empower them to overcome fears that could prevent them from progressing in life.
Pastor Princess Rebecca Fornah, the Chief Executive Officer of the Network, who is a United States-based Sierra Leonean, said she decided to start her charitable activities from Ghana, through the Teshie Children’s Home, because of the support and prayers she received from Ghanaians.
The Network’s next line of action would be to identify a vulnerable group of individuals in Kenya and support them, she said.
Other planned activities of the Network, she said, was to organise an empowerment conference dubbed: “Made for More” in Ohio, USA, on April 6 this year.
“This is because I feel that there are times in life that people become complacent. These children, some of whom are orphans, sometimes find themselves in situations where they are made to believe they are just orphans and nothing more. So the campaign is to let them, as well as other vulnerable groups, know they are not just orphans…but more,” she said.
Pastor Fornah said globally people perceived leaders and citizens as corrupt, however, they lacked the confidence to speak against such malpractices, hence the conference to empower people to be confident.
The CEO was raised by a single parent; her father, but through hard work, she now heads a church in the United States and serves in the Military.
“This means that God can realign your destiny and usher you into divine purpose,” she noted.
Mr Moses Lamptey, the Acting Administrator of the Home, who received the items, expressed the profound gratitude of the children for the kind gesture and prayed to God to help the Network achieve its vision and mission.
He appealed to the Non-Governmental Organisations to emulate the gesture and go to their aid, especially with the construction of a dormitory for the children.
He said the Home had 25 children but found it challenging to accept many who needed help due to lack of accommodation.
Mr Lamptey said the Home has, however, started constructing a dormitory to enable it to accommodate the children better and extend support to other children.
“The dormitory is 90 per cent complete and we appeal to the public to help us complete it, so that we can help many other kids in our various communities that need help.”
The Princess Fornah Network’s vision is to transform lives with the love and word of God, with a mission to raise confidence in individuals globally.
