By Micael Boateng, Sunyani - Ghanaian Chronicle
The Sunyani Municipal Assembly has assisted three orphanages in the region with items worth over GH¢5,000.00 The beneficiary institutions included the Compassion Is Love in Action (CILIA) Children's Home at Yawhima near Sunyani, the Biadan Children's Home at Biadan in the Berekum Municipality, and the Hanukah Children's Home at Baakoniaba, a suburb of Sunyani. The items included boxes of fish, canned soft drinks, tins of tomato paste, onions, cartons of milk and Voltic mineral water, bread, biscuits, and chicken. The Sunyani Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr. Kwame Awuah Twumasi, told the beneficiary institutions that the assembly would regularly assist them to ensure quality education, which is one of the cardinal objectives of the government. He urged authorities of the schools to collaborate with the assemblies to enhance administration. “I urge the various children's homes in the region, to liaise with their various assemblies to ensure how best they can receive assistance,” he said. Mr. Twumasi Awuah added that the government believed in quality human resource, and would continue to develop the country's human resource to accelerate development. “Every country develops with quality human resource, and the government is determined to constantly develop the country's human resource base,” he said. The Manager of the CILIA Children's Home, Nana Kwame Adu, commended the assembly for assisting the home, saying the donation had come at the appropriate time, and urged other bodies to come to the aid of the institution. The mother of the Biadan Children's Home thanked the assembly for the gesture and asked other organizations and individuals to emulate the assembly. Madam Lawrencia Nunoo, Matron of the home, said most products of the home are furthering their studies at the tertiary level, including, the polytechnics, universities and nursing colleges. She, therefore, called for adequate assistance for children homes, since they were making meaningful contributions to national development. “When these children are adequately catered for, they have the potential of becoming very useful citizens for the country,” she said.
