The wife of the former Vice President, Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur, has urged children in various orphanages to learn, work hard and give maximum respect to their caregivers.
She invoked divine blessings on the children, their parents and caregivers, with best wishes to carry out their activities.
Mrs. Amissah-Arthur, a friend of Raffiki, gave the advice last Saturday during a visit to Raffiki, an orphanage centre, owned by the Methodist Church at Winneba, in the Efutu Metropolitan area of the Central Region.
Raffiki is a Christian charitable institution which, in conjunction with the Methodist Church, came together as a team to put up a school that cares for impoverished, marginalized, socially neglected and children deprived of their rights.
Mrs. Amissah-Arthur, a friend to children and a mother for all, said it had been her practice to visit orphanages in the country that help to bring out the best in children who are less privileged in society.
She commended the Raffiki and the caregivers for going out of their way, with often inadequate resources, to cater for the less privileged in society.
She donated food items – bags of rice, cooking oil, candies, drinks, as well as some educational materials, such as pens and pencils, to support the children.
She used the occasion to wish the children and the staff well and God’s blessings and promised to be visiting them from time to time, Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur, is the provider of the JHS block for the village school.
