THE Asante Mabunu Kuo, a social organisation based in Accra and Tema, has presented a quantity of food items valued at GH¢3,500 and cash of GH¢500 to the Kumasi Children’s Home to assist in the upkeep of the inmates.
The items include four bales of used clothing, three bags of sugar, seven gallons of cooking oil, two cartons each of Milo, milk and Key soap, 10 cartons of baby diapers, two cartons of Omo, among others.
Making the presentation, Mr Nat Adu, the Chairman of the association, said the gesture was in connection with the official inauguration of the Kumasi branch.
He indicated that it was also part of the social responsibility of the association to support the needy in society.
He said it was evident that the government alone could not cater for all the needs of the home because of financial constraints.
He pointed out that the association had plans to establish branches in all the regions to support national development.
Mr Adu gave an assurance that members of the association would provide the home with students’ beds.
The Supervisor of the home, Madam Victoria Asugnya, who received the items on behalf of the inmates, commended the association for its support, adding that it would continue to count on the association and the general public for the survival of the inmates.
She said one of the major problems facing the home was inadequate beds and accommodation and called on the public to go to its aid.
