Accra, June 19, GNA – World Alliance for Limitless Opportunities (WALO), a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) has donated items to the people of Mafi-Sasekpe community in the Volta Region on Sunday.
Some of the items donated include; clothes, bedsheets, towels, shoes, books, toys among others.
Mrs Dzifa Azumah who represented the NGO in presenting the items to the Chief of the community said it was an act of good will to give back to the society especially the underprivileged.
She said the organisation was keen on giving opportunities to the deprived, adding that, “We are donating these items to this community because we believe they will have value for them and we urge that they use them prudently to serve the purpose for which we brought them”.
Togbui Buapo IV who received the items on behalf of the community expressed his profound gratitude to the NGO for choosing the Sasekpe Community among other deprived communities for the donation.
“We receive these items with love and we promise to use them judiciously to the benefit of the community. Our children are also happy to receive these books and toys as you can see the joy on their faces. We will see to it that they read them, they will not go wasted.
“We also appeal to WALO to adopt Mafi-Sasekpe as one of the communities to work with”, he added.
The Foto, Torfi, Aziewa and Gblemfeme clans which make up Mafi-Sasekpe Community were duely represented for the presentation and they would later distribute the items among the clan folks
The NGO also visited the Community Clinic where they donated some teddy-bears and other toys for children to play with anytime they visit the Clinic so as to create a conducive nurse-child relationship to make working on the children less stressful.
Miss Justine Blebu, Midwife in-charge of the Clinic received the items on behalf of the Clinic and thanked the NGO for the kind gesture.
“We really appreciate this thoughtful kindness. We will also want to use this opportunity to appeal for light and water for the clinic and to also help raise the clinic above ground level since the clinic gets flooded terribly anytime it rains. We seek your help in whatever way possible”, she said.
World Alliance for Limitless Opportunities is an International NGO based in the United States of America and has close working relationship with Ghana.
They have so far donated to a dilapidated community School at Ada and Mafi-Sasekpe Community.
