The pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) ladies group by name Loyal Ladies have extended their arm of generosity to the kids at the Cherubs Children's Home in Apire where they feted and played with the inmates on mother's day, last Sunday.
Having carefully selected the home where kids as low as 2 years are being raised by trained personnel, the ladies numbering about 200 and dressed in their famous blue t-shirts and jeans to match stormed the home to offer care and support to the inmates.
Presenting some items consisting of drinkables, stationery, cooking oil, tomato paste, rice, detergents, toiletries, bags of cement and an undisclosed amount at a cost of GHC 8,000.00, Madam Martha Koduah, Regional Captain of the group expressed delight at the opportunity to give back to the less privileged kids.
According to her, the kids were unfortunate not to have had their parents to cater for them due to one reason or the other but the Loyal Ladies were ready to provide such comfort they needed.
The group leader mentioned plans by the group to constantly visit the home to demonstrate care and support to the kids.
According to her, the management of the home cannot single-handedly cater for the needs of the kids and therefore needed support from bodies like the Loyal Ladies.
Having received much support from the first lady and second lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo and Hajia Samira Bawumia respectively, Madam Koduah said the group decided to extend same kindness to the Cherubs Home as the World celebrated Mother's Day.
She also disclosed plans by the group to extend same courtesies and support to other needy organizations in the region but tasked managers of these facilities to use the items and donations for the purpose it is intended.
Receiving the items on behalf of the kids, Mr Nicholas Osei-Bonsu, Founder and Manager of the Cherubs Children's Home thanked the Loyal Ladies for the kind gesture.
According to him, the home for the past 12 years since its establishment have had to solicit for funds to cater for the needs of the inmates.
He therefore commended the Loyal Ladies of the NPP for showing support to the home since this was the second time an NPP aligned group was doing so.
He, however, rallied other public and private organizations to emulate the gesture by the loyal ladies so as to enable the Home cater for the inmates effectively.
