Women's World Banking supports orphanage
The Women's World Banking Ghana (WWBG) has donated assorted items to the Christ Faith Foster Home at Frafraha in Accra.
The items, which included consumables and sanitary items, were to help in the upkeep of the children in the home during the festive season.
Presenting the items, the Head of Operations, WWBG, Ms Gertrude Yartey, said the support was part of measures to share the love of Christmas with everyone.
She said management thought it wise not to keep the love to themselves, but to share it with others to ensure that everyone enjoyed the season, which is characterised by a lot of giving.
“We are in the season of love and we cannot sit in our offices and keep the love to ourselves. Management decided that we extend this love and that is why we have brought these items to help them celebrate the season,” she said.

Home needs support
A caretaker at the home, who received the items, Mr Abraham Danso, expressed gratitude to the company for its benevolence and urged other corporate organisations to emulate to ensure that the children were taken good care of.
In a later interview, he said, the home relied on support from donor organisations to keep it running as it was a private facility.
He said although donations came throughout the year, it wasn't enough and there was therefore the need to get more support.
The Christ Faith Foster Home, he said, had 41 children under its care with ages ranging between 6 to 26.
The President of Orphanages International Ghana, Pastor Samuel Aferi reiterated the need for people to support foster homes in the country, explaining that often the resources were not enough to cater for all the children.
