Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Treasure of Life Foundation, a non profit making organisation, Lawyer Francis Xavier Sosu, has put smiles on faces of vulnerable children within the Madina municipality as Ghanaians celebrates Christmas and new year festive on Sunday, 23rd December, 2018.
Over 1000 vulnerable children including autisms, physically challenged, deaf and lame as well as children with HIV/AIDS were fed, provided drinks, mentored, played games and free medical screening.
The annual event is being spearheaded Treasure of Life Foundation with the project theme, ” Feed the Hungry Outreach”.
Mr Sosu stated that he was moved on the fact that extreme poverty remained a daily reality for more than one million children across the country who lived on less than one Cedi a day.
He said hunger and malnutrition were almost equally pervasive, adding that, more than 10 thousand children within the Madina municipality had too little food to meet their daily energy needs.
The Human Rights Lawyer used the occasion to call on Ghanaians to extend helping hands to the vulnerable children on the streets, stating that for young children, lack of food could be parlous since it retarded their physical and mental development and threatened their survival.
He stressed the need for government and development agencies to pay special attention to the needs of vulnerable children and orphans who do not have access to adequate health, education, clothing and shelter.
Mr Sosu who is also an Associate Pastor of Church of Christ at Amanfro in Adentan, called on Christians to use the Christmas festive to impact God words onto the vulnerable children as their souls needs the gospel as their bodies needs foods and clothing.
He further called on well-to-do individuals to support and care for the needy and orphans who through no fault of theirs had lost their parents to enjoy Christmas.
The Treasure of Life Foundation is a global outreach to Children in Slavery in Ghana and Africa founded by Lawyer Francis-Xavier Sosu. It is registered as a non-profit, non-governmental organization in Ghana, Kenya and USA.
The Foundation sought to rescue and rehabilitate enslaved and abused women and children through education and provide them with social support and protection.
It also seeks to restore hope to the hopeless, give home to the homeless, comfort to the afflicted and support to the destitute and needy children through its missions.
Lawyer Sosu explained that the Feed the Hungry Project (FHO) is a special outreach designed to educate the world on the need to share the love of God by sharing food with the hungry. “There are some children who don’t get access to food at all and sleep hungry daily” he said.
The Feed the Hungry Project (FHO), he noted gives direct answer to the need for education and encouragement of Ghanaians to reach out to the hungry especially the vulnerable class such as enslaved children and street dwellers.
Mr Sosu however advised the children to take their education seriously as it remains the only means by which they could escape child slavery and poverty.
