President of a Non-governmental Organization (NGO), Lovers Association Worldwide, Ebenezer Kwabena Adu affectionately called K. Adu has appealed to the Public, Stakeholders and NGOs to support the less privileged in society especially during Covid-19 era.
The association has stepped up its Covid-19 support efforts by donating to Cherubs Education Center, an orphanage home at Santasi-Apire in the Kumasi metropolis.
Items presented to the Orphanage are 13 bags of rice, cooking oil, bread, drink and bottles of water.
The President of the Association K. Adu who double as CEO of K. Adu Gas and Oven in an interview with Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo noted that the novel Coronavirus had without doubt brought a large measure of untold hardships to many people across the country, especially the vulnerable and less privileged in society, as they have been deprived of their meager livelihoods.
According to him, many orphanage homes and inmates in some prisons in Ghana are starving due to the hardship Covid-19 has caused.
“Under this novel Covid-19, less privileged in the society are struggling to survive. The public, NGOs, Institutions and fun clubs shouldn’t wait till Christmas and Easter before they donate to orphanage homes, prisons and less privileged. This is the time we have to show them love and let them know they are part of the society” K. Adu said.
The Founder of Cherubs Education Center Elder Nicholas Osei Bonsu revealed that the novel Covid-19 has affected donation the orphanage receive from the public.
According to him, the orphans are starving since people are not willing to donate to their homes.
“Because of Covid-19, 70% of those who donate to us are not coming. They are afraid to come out and mingle with the kids and also the Covid-19 has affected their businesses. We are really starving” Elder Nicholas explained.
He therefore expressed gratitude to the members and executives of Lovers Association Worldwide for coming to their aid.
