The Nakwabi Children’s Home, located at Nakwabi, in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District of the Savannah Region has appealed to the government and private organisations to support their quest to cater for the under privileged children under its care.
The organisation which has been catering for the homeless and orphans for over a decade now, currently has a total of 22 children under its care.
This was disclosed when Mr Jeremiah Seidu, Executive Director of Jaksally Development Organised a Non-Governmental Organisation, with its head office in Bole, visited the orphanage to find out the challenges facing the orphans and donated some clothing’s to them.
Mr. Jeremiah called on Ghanaians to develop interest in adopting children who by no fault of theirs, have been rendered homeless.
He said such children have always found themselves in orphanages where they do not have any affinity with their biological parents and are left in the mercies of care givers.
Therefore, adopting such children who are now destitute into their homes and nurturing them to become responsible citizens, were what a good citizen could do, to compliment his or her good works for the country.
Such an act, he noted, always attracts the full blessings of God.
Mr Jeremiah, asked Ghanaians to avail themselves to the poor and the less endowed in society.
“It doesn’t matter whether you have children or not, Ghanaians must show love and make those children their own”, he noted.
Asked what motivated him to show compassion to the needy, Mr Jeremiah noted he was touched by the spirit of God to mobilise resources from his friends and well wishers through his NGO, Jaksally Development Organization.
Mr Jeremiah, therefore, appealed to various stakeholders in the District as in chiefs, the Member of Parliament,the District Chief Executive among other individuals to come to the aid of the home as it is currently challenged with inadequate food for the deprived children.
Rev. Sister Jane Mary, who received the items thanked Mr Jeremiah for her kind gesture and prayed to God to reward her abundantly.
She said the items would go a long way to help the orphanage address some of the teething challenges confronting it.
She pleaded with other benevolent individuals, institutions and corporate bodies to follow the footsteps of Mr. Jeremiah.
According to her, the running of the home has become difficult due to inadequate resources and appealed appealed for more support to ensure that the Home is able to adequately provide for the children
“We need more support to help us take care of the children in terms of feeding, and schooling.
The home is often challenged in this regard, so we require help” she noted.
She added due to the difficulties encountered in feeding the children, she has ventured into farming of groundnut, maize, yam and guinea corn to supplement her efforts in taking care of the children.
Speaking to Yagbon News, the District Chief Executive for the area, Madam Lonsina Barkisu equally called on other individuals and stakeholders to contribute their widow’s mite to help keep the home running.
