Matilda Amissah Arthur donates to Raffiki Orphanage

The wife of the former Vice President, Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur, has urged children in various orphanages to learn and work hard and give maximum respect to their caregivers.

She invoked divine blessings on the children, parents and caregivers, with best wishes to carry out their activities.

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur gave the advice on Saturday during a visit to Raffiki, an orphanage owned by the Methodist Church at Winneba in the Central Region.

Raffiki is a Christian charitable institution which in conjunction with the Methodist Church, came together as a team to put up a school that cares for impoverished, marginalized, socially neglected and children deprived of their rights.

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur, a friend to children and a mother for all, said it had been her practice to visit orphanages in the country that helps to bring out the best in children who are less privileged in society.

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur commended Raffiki and the caregivers for going out of their way, with often inadequate resources to cater for the less privileged in society.

She donated food items-bags of rice, cooking oil, candies, drinks, as well as some educational materials such as pens, pencils, to support the children.

She used the occasion to wish the children and the staff well and promise to visit them from time to time.

Mrs Matilda Amissah-Arthur helped in providing the JHS block for the Village school.
