On his part, Prophet Emmanuel Asante expressed gratitude to the YMCA for the donation as he received the items From Ghana YMCA’s National Youth President, George Dela Coffie.
According to Rev. Kofi Owusu Afriyie, the orphanage which has been running with the support of donations and kind gestures from churches, friends, NGOs and help from other foreign NGO, has taken it’s inhabitants through school to the highest level of education and equipped them with technical and vocational skills needed for their personal development.
Emphasising on the fact that there has been no governmental support since its inception in 1995, Rev.
