Accra, May 28, GNA - An Orphanage estimated at about 90 million dollars is to be constructed near Madina in Accra by the Hands of Mercy Christian Outreach Ministry.
Mr Paul Anaba, Africa Liaison Chairman of the Board of the Ghana Division of Outreach, disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, on Saturday.
He said land had been acquired for the project, adding that, the Director of the Outreach, which is an international Ministry based in Canada, the Reverend Deborah Macquarrie, was expected in Ghana by the end of the year to perform the ground breaking ceremony. Mr Anaba who is also Home Administrator said that in a modest way, the Outreach had started a Home at Teshie Tsui-bleoo with nine orphans in rented premises.
He said with the construction of its own building and other facilities, the Hands of Mercy Outreach could take in and care for more Orphans and deprived children to give them "a ray of hope". Mr Anaba noted that the education of many children in the society had to be curtailed with their talents untapped because they could not get anybody to cater for them "forcing some of these young people onto the streets with its attendant social problems". 28 May 05
