The Savannah Regional Consultative Forum on Friday 25th December, 2020, has donated items to the Sawla Children’s Home of the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba district in the Savannah Region.
The forum which was founded on 8th December, 2019 draws its association from scholars, professionals, business men and women in the Savannah region who reside both in Ghana and abroad, who have agreed to come together and contribute their ideas and resources to the promotion of peace and development of the Savannah region.
This association in its own wisdom biblically believes that Christmas marks the birth of Jesus Christ and a season of sharing with loved ones and has hence decided to share with the less privileged in the Sawla children’s home.
On behalf of the forum, Mr. Jonathan Laamiitey who is the secretary of the Gender, children and social inclusion committee presented bags of rice, boxes of mackerel, curtains of soft drinks, a bag of sugar, boxes of Tin tomato and a lot more which cost hundreds of Ghana cedis to the Sawla children’s home.
During the presentation, Mr. Jonathan Laamiitey noted that the forum offers services such as provision of legal advice, business ideas, career education and the provision of support to the less privileged in the society with the aim of ensuring social inclusion in all aspects of life.
He again added the during this festive season, the forum has decided to provide support to less privileged individuals such as the disabled, orphans and others who may feel excluded in the celebration of the festive.
Pastor Emmanuel Danka who is the manager and father of sawla children’s home received the items on behalf of the management of the home.
He thanked the forum on behalf of the home and the children for remembering the orphanage during such celebrations and regarded the donation as timely and promised that the items will be put to judicious use.
Pastor Emmanuel Danka called on other stakeholders to imitate the kind gesture of the Savannah Regional Consultative Forum to contribute their quota to the home.
He further noted that the Sawla children’s home has established a school named
“Train the child international School” which was founded by International Assistance Programme and hence called on the general public to bring their wards especially children of two years of age or more to the facility since it’s opened to all.
