Reverend Charles Andrews presenting the objects to the foundation
A Ghanaian resident of Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA, Reverend Charles Andrews, last Sunday donated various food items and detergents to St Anna’s family home in Winneba.
Reverend Andrews is a former Principal of Manchester Christian College in the UK and current Minister at Pentecost in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA. He is a special friend of the children of the house.
At the presentation hosted by Charlotte’s Memorial Foundation, an Accra-based non-governmental organization (NGO), Reverend Andrews counseled children and young adults against the ills of society and praised the mother of the home, Mrs. Emelia Turkson , for prioritizing education for the children in her care.
Items included rice, milk, cooking oil, bath soap, sugar, gari and washing powder. Introducing the items, the Reverend Minister said the donation was made possible by his close friends and family who greatly appreciated the current economic hardships and struggles that many Ghanaians were going through.
Earlier, Reverend Andrews and members of Charlotte’s Memorial Foundation had lunch with the children and their caregivers.
He interacted with them and congratulated the young adults among them, some of whom had just graduated from college, two of whom had joined the armed forces.
Upon receiving the items, Ms Turkson thanked Reverend Andrews, his friends and family for the kind gesture, noting that “St Anna’s Family Home is indebted to Charlotte’s Memorial Foundation for arranging the presentation at such an opportune time”.
Present at the presentation were the founder and CEO of the foundation, Beatrice Efua Mensima Awotwi-Pratt; Field Director, William Koblah Mensah; Afefa Kuwornu and Ephraim Yawson Atandzi, both volunteers and field workers of the foundation.
