At the Echoing Hills Orphanage, the group donated items valued at GHC12,000.
The items included foodstuffs, beverages, bottled water, 100 pieces of packed food, shoes, bags, clothing, sanitary pads, and 40 pieces of plastic chairs.
The organisation also presented an undisclosed amount to the management of the home as part of the ministry’s social responsibility.
The items were donated to the orphanage as part of activities to celebrate the life of Prophet TB Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN), who died in June this year.
Presenting the items to the orphanage, leader of the organisation, Mrs Millicent Ofori Atta, said the donation was to support the running of the home.
Mrs Ofori Atta, who was of the belief that the items would help reduce the pressure on the management of the home, said the legacies of Prophet TB Joshua, including caring for widows and orphans had been a source of inspiration to the organisation which had engaged in such activities in the last eight years.
Receiving the items, a Caretaker at the Echoing Hills Orphanage, Mrs Naomi Ansah, said unlike other orphanages, the Echoing Hills Orphanage Home provided shelter to children with special needs, adding that some of the children at the home had autism and visual impairment, among others.
She commended the organisation for the gesture, saying the items would go a long way to improve the wellbeing of the children in their care.
