A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) known as 'Passion for Needy' Ghana branch and a website for the NGO were,last-thursday, inaugurated in Accra. The theme for the two inaugurations was: “We are blessed to bless others” and “The secret of blessing is in giving”.

The inauguration was performed by Dr Barima Amissah Afrane on behalf of Hon. Mr Joe Gidisu, Minister for Roads and Highways, who himself was supposed to have performed the ceremony on behalf of the late President, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, who was originally scheduled for the event.

Established by Nigerian Man of God, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, on August 11, 2009, Passion for Needy has the objective of addressing the concerns of the needy in society by providing need-based assistance to individuals, communities and creating awareness for the needy.

Specifically, Passion for Needy aims to provide assistance wholly or in conjunction with other organisations to support street children, HIV/AIDS victims, orphans, the physically-challenged, under-privileged and brilliant-but-needy children, widows and widowers and the Aged in society.

Welcoming the audience to the launch, the chairperson of Passion for Needy, Ms Janet Torgbor El-Aschar, disclosed that the organisation, since its establishment, had settled the medical bills of patients at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital and Ridge Hospital; distributed relief items to flood victims at Ashaiman; assisted two visually-impaired persons to pursue a study in reflexology and donated food items to the Teshie Orphanage.

In addition, Ms El-Aschar said, Passion for Needy had also made donations to the Male and Female Prisons at Nsawam, New Life Orphanage at Nungua, Osu Children's Home, Accra Rehabilitation Centre and the Society for the Socially Disadvantaged and Christ Faith Foster Home at Frafraha, while it also registered a number of disadvantaged persons under the National Health Insurance Scheme.

Prior to the inauguration, Mr Gidisu, who showed a brief appearance at the function, donated an amount of ten thousand Ghana Cedis (GH¢10,000.00) to Passion for the Needy.

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you fall, never gonna say goodbye and dessert you!
