Members of the Temple of Praise Ministries (TOP), based in the United States, United Kingdom and Italy, have jointly donated an ambulance to the Sunyani West District Assembly.
Presenting the keys of the ambulance to the Assembly, the General Secretary of the Church, Rev. Adu Kyeremeh, said the donation formed part of the Church's social responsibility aside preaching the gospel, to help improve the moral fiber of the citizenry.
Rev. Adu Kyeremeh hoped the ambulance would be used to provide the needed emergency services to the people.
Receiving the keys on behalf of the Assembly, Mr. Ankamah Kyeremeh, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Sunyani West, said he was grateful to the Church for recognising the health needs of the Assembly, and assisting in that direction.
He said the government attached great importance to health issues, hence the introduction of the National Health Insurance Scheme, in order to provide affordable healthcare to the people.
Mr. Ankamah Kyeremeh urged the Ghana Red Cross Society and the Ghana Fire Service, which would be using the ambulance, to take good care of it to ensure its longevity.
Nana Kwame Korang, Omanhene of Awuah-Dunmase, who is also the Patron of the Brong-Ahafo Ghana Red Cross Society, urged churches not always spend most of their time indoors, but to go out and reach to the poor in society.
In a related development, the Women Fellowship of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at Duayaw-Nkwanta, has presented items valued at GH¢200 to Mums Love Orphanage at Duayaw-Nkwanta. The package included foodstuff, soap and clothes.
Making the donation, the President of the Fellowship, Madam Cynthia Forkuo, noted that it was the responsibility of the church to assist orphans and the vulnerable in society, and therefore appealed to churches to always take good care of orphans and vulnerable children in society.
The Manager of the home, Imoro Adams, thanked the women for the gesture, and appealed to other organisations to come to their aid.
