As part of activities to mark its one week celebration, the Students Representative Council (SRC) of All Nations University College (ANUC), a Koforidua based private University in the Eastern region has donated assorted items to Hour of Grace Orphanage Home at Huhunya, a farming community in the Yilo Manya–Krobo District.
The items comprised of two bags of rice, two bags of sugar, varieties of biscuits, toiletries, varieties of fruits, candies and used clothing at an estimated value of one thousand Ghana cedis.
In a separate speech prior to the donation, the President and Women's Commissioner (WC) of the SRC, Mr. Cephas Paa Kwasi and Miss Anita Okoampa respectively emphasized on the need for both private and government institutions to support the mainly underprivileged children.
According to the leaders, in order to bring out the God given talents in people, it was paramount for all and sundry to put their hands on deck to support the cause.
“These innocent children you see here today are our future leaders who have something to contribute towards the development of the country, however, in an attempt to deny them care and love, it would nip their talents in the bud”, they stated.
According to them, the student's body decided to contribute part of their resources which they highly consider as part of their social responsibilities for the development of the innocent children.
Receiving the items, the founder and evangelist of the Pentecost Church, Mr. Lawrence Gbengbor thanked the members of the SRC for their kind gesture and promised them of putting the items into good use.
He called on the government and other philanthropist to come to the aid of the Home.
The donation incidentally coincides with the theme for this year's celebration, which is 'Reaching out to the Needy'.
The President and WC appealed to other higher learning institutions in the country to devote part of their resources to support under privilege people within their area of operations.
As part of the programme line-up for the celebration, there would be what they called campus trade fair on Wednesday where companies operating within the region would have to showcase and bring their products to the doorsteps of the students.
There would be a float through the commercial streets of the municipality and visit to Shai Hills and Akuse club house respectively.
