President of LiMAP Assoc Prof Grace Offori Sarpong Presenting the items to the Founder
As part of their mandate to transform generations and in a bid to extend a helping hand to others outside their usual scope, the Ladies in Mining and Allied Professions in Ghana (LiMAP-Gh), have visited and donated to the Angels of Hope Orphanage in Tarkwa. With the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the country, the story of the Angels of Hope Orphanage was no different from several homes and families. Donations stalled since the onset of the pandemic and fending for the kids at the orphanage has not been a walk in the park.
With this motivation, LiMAP-Gh mobilised resources worth about five thousand Ghana cedis (GH¢5,000.00) from members and embarked on a visit to the Orphanage. The group took this initiative in order to contribute widow’s mite for the care of the children in the orphanage and put smiles on their faces. The group, comprising ten (10) LiMAP members and a media representative from Dynamite FM, was warmly received and welcomed by the owner of the orphanage, Madam Esi Antobam who was excited about the visit.
The President of LiMAP, Assoc Prof Grace Ofori-Sarpong, presented the items on behalf of the group. The items donated included soaps, toothbrushes, shoes, toys, toiletries, rice, oil, mackerel, spaghetti, milk powder, baby foods (Nan 1 and 2), milo, cups, pomades, liquid soaps among others. LiMAP also donated assorted clothes to the boys and girls aged between one month and 12 years, and a cash amount of GH¢ 500.00. The Ladies also interacted with the kids and spent quality time with them to put smiles on their faces.
The owner of the orphanage, Madam Esi Antobam, in her speech, added that donations to the orphanage had dwindled since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, and she was therefore amazed and grateful that LiMAP could donate generously at this time.
