The Dominica Foundation is set to embark on a charity project dubbed “My COVID-19 Substance” to provide for the less privileged and the exempted in the society.
The charity program which was being organised in partnership with Jayana Ministries is also sponsored by spotonnews.net.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with the site yesterday in Accra, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the foundation, Ms Dominica Ewura Esi Amankonah explained that the charity event would take place at Apam orphanage home on April, 16 at exactly 10:00am.
She noted that the ongoing donations which were spearheaded by government officials and some celebrities were done for particular persons or portion of the society, hence least thought about the orphans.
Ms Amankonah observed that the kids at orphanage homes have little to eat, stressing that the outbreak of COVID-19 had made it very difficult for the kids to survive in those homes.
She said social distancing in those homes was difficult, stressing that those kids would suffer if any contract the virus.
Ms Amankonah indicated that it was time for those abandoned kids gain the love and support from the citizenry, thus underscored the need for people to support her foundation to give hope to those vulnerable kids by donating items and money.
“I am appealing to all Ghanaians through this site that they should come and support me. My strength alone cannot do it I need more hands to be on board.
If it touches your heart to donate, sponsor or partner with us kindly call
0548479739, will be glad to have you on board,” she added.
Ms Amankonah further stated that her outfit would need items including pampers, toilet rolls, rice, water, sugar, detergents among other relevant items.
Quoting the Bible, she stated that Matthew 6:1 said there is more blessing in giving than receiving.
Ms Amankonah established that as worshipers of God, it is your responsibility to ensure the society becomes a good place for all, adding that “this is indeed a hard time for the country, let us all collaborate to help the government in the fight against the novel coronavirus.”
She however, promised her outfit’s support in ensuring the kids get entertained and receive the blessings of God.
In doing so, Ms Amankonah announced that she was embarking on the project with great creative art stakeholders including gospel musician Joyce Blessing, Jayana and actor Kobby One.
