Gospel musician, Evangelist Diana Asamoah, recently surprised students of the Garden City Special School with a donation of assorted food items worth Ghc 10,000 as part of her birthday celebrations.
The items included boxes of bottled water, bags of rice, boxes of tomato paste, bags of sugar, packs of toilet tissue, boxes of beverages, cartons of milk, boxes of Kalyppo Fruit drinks, toffees and boxes of mackerel.
The singer, who spent about three hours at the school also feted the children, sang some of her favourite songs for the students and their teachers and later cut a huge birthday cake with them.
In March this year, Diana Asamoah held her annual Abba Father Concert which raised funds to support people who were in need, were sick and those with intellectual disabilities.
She said the Garden City Special School was identified as an institution in need hence the donation.
The headteacher of the school, Dr Roseline Ofori-Yeboah, commended the singer for constantly visiting, praying and singing for the pupils.
She used the occasion to appeal to other organisations and philanthropic individuals to come to the school’s aid especially with the construction of a female dormitory.
She noted that due to lack of accommodation especially for the female students, those bringing their wards from outside the Kumasi have to be turned away.
Dr Ofori-Yeboah said in 2016 their new school bus was involved in a fatal accident and was competely destroyed leaving them with transportation challenges.
She said their old bus had also broken down and called for support to get a new one.
