Presenting the items to the hospital in Accra, the President of Young Adults’ Fellowship (YAF), a group within Riis Congregation of the Presbyterian Church, Kwame Owusu Okyere explained that the gesture forms part of the church’s seasonal outreach project which aims to help humanity to cater for their needs.

“The Presbyterian Church of Ghana has generational groups which every year they set aside a week to embark on charity project as means to win souls for Christ and also help the less privileged in the society,” he added.

Mr Okyere stated that the church’s mandate was not only to preach the gospel but to also offer a helping hand to the needy “just like God offered Christ to humanity.”

Mr Okyere promised the church’s commitment in reaching out to more people to assist them and advised other religious, corporate and social institutions to identify a particular need within the society and help solve it.

Receiving the items on behalf of the facility, Ms Isabella Kotey, Peri-Operative Nurse Specialist at WGMH thanked YAF of the Riis Congregation for the gesture and said the items would be used for its intended purpose.

“We are happy to receive these items because some expectant mothers who come here do not bring anything. Sometimes we use internal generated funds to support those women so these items will go a long way to help us and such women as well,” she added.

Ms Kotey observed that the threats that COVID-19 had imposed on the environment and lives was devastating and expressed the need for benevolent people and institutions to come to their aid to support needy women at the facility.
