The President of FAWA, Mrs Beatrice Abbey, on behalf of the association, urged all the students to study hard and never give up in life.

“We have heard of you and we brought you some items. I urge you all to take your education seriously and obey your authorities. Let discipline be your hallmark and always listen to advice.

“You may have some little quarrels with your colleagues but that shouldn’t prevent you from being friends with them forever because there is a lot you can learn from each other”, she said.

She said the donation formed part of the association’s social responsibility to the society.

Challenges

The Director and Head Pastor of the village, Rev. Dr Isaac Nana Abekah, who received the items, expressed his appreciation to the association and gave an assurance that the items would be used for the intended purposes.

He called on other organisations to help them in taking care of the children.

“In every institution there are challenges, and so is the Methodist Rafiki Satellite Village. This organisation needs more vehicles to run its daily activities. We also need funds for more infrastructural development as we are planning to build more cottages in order to cater for more children. We will be very grateful if more of these associations come in to help us,” he added.

The Former Ambassador Wives Association (FAWA), after the presentation, socialised with the children and prayed for God's protection and guidance for their lives.
