A private citizen, Mrs Nana Aba Wirrom chose children of Methodist Rafiki Satellite Village, a Methodist Church associated orphanage at Gyahaadze in the Winneba Municipality of the Central Region to share her 50th birthday with.
Nana Aba turned 50 on Thursday, January 7, 2021, and accompanied by her husband – Mr Clifford Wirrom – and a couple of friends, she donated assorted items such as soft drinks, drinking water, cooking oil, bags of rice, pastries, cooked meals and toiletries to the children.
Mrs Wirrom while interacting with the children, advised them to abide by the instructions and guidance of their guardians and eschew juvenile delinquency.
She prayed for God’s favour upon them so they grow to become the Akufo-Addos, John Mahamas, Dr Bawumias, Esther Smiths, Kwame Nkrumahs and other great teachers and doctors in the future.
The children in turn expressed profound gratitude to her for remembering and choosing to celebrate her birthday with them. They in turn prayed for more happy birthdays for her.
The Methodist Rafiki Satellite Village was set up in 2006 by The Methodist Church Ghana as part of her moral duty and social action following the realization that children from Winneba and its environs were given out to fishermen from nearby towns to serve as bread winners for families.
The Village aspires to house a 100 children at any given time, develop a model school for the educational needs of the children of Rafiki as well as those in its adjourning communities.
