A NON-GOVERNMENTAL Organisation (NGO), the Juliana Antwi Foundation (JAMFUND), has embarked on a number of projects at the All Nations Charity Home at Ayigya, a suburb of Kumasi, as part of its contribution to bringing hope to the inmates of the orphanage.
The projects included the construction of water tanks with standing pipes, renovation of the boys’ dormitory, re-electrification of some of the structures and provision of funds for feeding.
Speaking to the Daily Graphic after sponsoring the inmates on a familiarisation tour of the Kumasi Zoo, the Executive Director of the NGO, Mr Tim Boateng, said the organisation had so far spent about GH¢4,650 on a number of projects at the home.
He explained that JAMFUND was established to assist the needy in the society, and that the support to the orphanage was a typical example.
He stated that the organisation was run from the United Kingdom, and that he as a founder, facilitated the channelling of funds from various quarters to institutions.
Mr Boateng said JAMFUND had sent a shipment of second hand clothing to the orphanage.
The orphanage currently has about 40 inmates, and is under the care of Rev. Philip Kwasi Nyamekye.
