Men’s Fellowship of Trinity United Church donates to Accra Psychiatric Hospital

The items include
bags of rice, beans and gari, seven boxes of carbolic soap, 10 bundles of
toilet roll, cooking oil, 16 crates of eggs and used clothes.

The group also
presented a cheque for 500 Ghana cedis to officials of the hospital to help in
the management of the facility.

Dr Ebenezer Kofi
Hayford, the Chairman of the Men’s Fellowship, who made the presentation on
behalf of the group, said it was part of the Fellowship’s annual social
responsibility of responding to the needs of the less-privileged in society.

“We have been to
other places over the years and so, this year, we as the Executive of the Men’s
Fellowship thought it wise to come to the Accra Psychiatric Hospital to
assist,” he said.

Dr Hayford said
there was the need for society to make the less-privileged feel at home and
always know that their welfare was paramount wherever they may find themselves
adding; “This is the primary objective of our donation.”

“The scriptures say
that give and it shall be given unto you,” Dr Hayford said, and urged the
citizenry to give freely as what they would give concerning the Word of God
would be given back to them.

Mr John Asumadu, the
Secretary to the Men’s Fellowship, said the Executive Council, as part of its
activities in the year, had highlighted donation on its calendar to support the
needy in society.

He said the
Executive Council and the Church as a whole saw the less-privileged as
important people in society and that, at regular intervals, they needed to
reach out to them to make them know their worth in society.

Madam Beatrice
Nyarko, the Deputy Director of Nursing Services at the Accra Psychiatric
Hospital, who received the items, commended the members of the Fellowship for
their support saying; “We are grateful for this kind gesture, especially with
the soap that will help in the hygienic upkeep of the patients.”

She said: “We are so
much touched because we thought people do not care about us but your presence
here today has motivated us immensely”.

Madam Nyarko,
however, appealed to other churches and organisations to emulate the group’s
kind gesture and help in the upkeep of the patients.

 


The Men’s Fellowship of Trinity United Church – Legon, an interdenominational
church, on Friday donated assorted items worth 2000 Ghana cedis to the Accra
Psychiatric Hospital.
