THE Royal House Chapel Inter-national has organised an end-of-year party for about 250 under-privilege people at its premises in Accra.

The beneficiaries were made up of orphans, porters popularly called 'kayaye' and some street children.

They were fed with rice, soft drinks, pastries and candies.

Speaking to the Times, the Rev. Johnny Apeakorang said the party was an annual affair by which the church demonstrates its love to another irrespective of race, religion, education and sex.
'In as much as the church seeks the spiritual needs of its people, it as well takes interest in the material needs of people especially the under-privileged. 'We believe in the total well-being of the society and not only the spiritual well being of our members', he said.

Rev. Apeakorang said Christmas is a season of sharing, showing love, compassion and reaching out to others, particularly to the needy.

He described the party as an open one thrown by the church to enable as many people as possible to avail themselves of the opportunity.

He said the church Act, besides organising regular visits to the hospitals, prisons and other orphanages to show their love, has also set up a scholarship scheme under which it offers assistance to students to further their education.
