Hucasdevi Ghana on Saturday, January 6, 2018
Hucasdevi Ghana on Saturday, January 6, 2018 visited Human Compassion Orphanage (HCO) at Pokuase-Mayera in the Greater Accra Region of the Republic of Ghana to support the orphanage with material and financial aid. Though Hucasdevi Ghana’s one year support to HCO ended over three years ago but the call on Hucasdevi Ghana from the orphanage to come to their aid was urgent. The orphanage was hard pressed financially and materially and as a result was facing difficulties in taking care of the children at the orphanage. HCO has been unable to take in new orphans that the Department of Social Welfare called on them to take care of. They turned down the call from the Department.
Their plight was made known during the visit to the orphanage last year by the Sallah’s and Buah’s together with Hucasdevi Ghana.
After the Christmas party and donation at the Potter’s Village orphanage in Dodowa to end the one year support to the orphanage, Kwadwo Konadu (Exec. Director) of Hucasdevi Ghana and his team including Maame B Akowuah, Ezekiel Doku, Evelyn Fia-kwofie and the rest decided to go to the aid of HCO. It was an amazing moment and time spent with the children.
Activities at the orphanage during the visit included Ludu, oware, football and the most entertaining game from Mali called Naama Naama. The children, staff at the orphanage and visitors (Hucasdevi Ghana team) took part in the games.
After the fun moment, it was time for the presentation of items. Items presented to the orphanage included 200 pieces of toothbrush, 100 pieces of tooth paste, 3 bags of rice, 10kg cooking oil, 5kg cooking oil, 5 packs of bottled water, 4 packs of coke (can), 3 packs of bottled juice, 7 packs of toilet rolls, 4 bags (sacks) of clothes, 2 boxes of shoes and other items. The donated items amounted to Ghs3500) (£563 or $770). In addition the orphanage was given Ghs1100 (£176 or $241) to support the orphanage financially. The toothbrush and tooth paste was courtesy Vanessa Lewis from the USA.
Receiving the items on behalf of the orphanage, Mr. Mensah the Founder and President of HCO expressed their profound gratitude to Hucasdevi Ghana for its continuous support to HCO. He was lost of words and burst into tears in amazement of the support as they were asking themselves how the year 2018 was going to be for them. They have moved to a distant location and to him that does not help many donors or well wishers to come to their aid as it seems far.
Both Ezekiel Doku Project Officer and Kwadwo Konadu Executive Director took turns to speak to the children and finally prayed with them for God’s continual protection and supply of their needs.
