H.M. Films Supports Awoe Foundation Charity Project

HM FILMS is supporting a charity project by Awoe Foundation International in Ghana to help improve the living standards of the underprivileged children in Ghana.

Awoe Foundation International is an American Non –Governmental Organization (NGO) headed by Prophetess Wendy Anne Ross of Awoe Ministries International.

The foundation has been in existence for the last six years and has done a number of charity works in some West African countries including Liberia. Ghana is the latest West African country it has targeted and Sydoghana and HM Films, one of Ghana’s oldest film production houses, happen to be supporting the project in Ghana.

“Coming to Ghana, I realized that it can be a little bit deceptive. I have been to West Africa and the airports are not so beautiful and you see the percept of poverty right on the ground at the airport. However Ghana’s is a little bit deceptive. If you come out and go beyond the area of the airport, you see the poverty.

So the idea of doing the foundation came from within Ghana. My contacts within Ghana know what I do in countries like Liberia and have brought me to see for myself, that there is a need for something here,” Prophetess Wendy Anne Ross explained her reason for coming to Ghana in an interview with BEATWAVES.

She said the foundation would be partnering with underprivileged families in Ghana to help take care of their wards by providing basic necessities such as food and clothes. But that is just the tip of the ice berg of things to come.

“Our ultimate goal is to be able to go into the broader ends of Ghana, into the interior a little bit more, and be able to put things like orphanages, schools and different things in those areas. But until we can do that, because that is a long term project, we want to deal with issues of the needy,” she also added.

Last week, Wendy and her team went round some streets of Accra, including the Makola market, one of busiest markets in the capital, to feed some street children with fried rice and chicken.

“When we set up there, we saw little children come out and the funny thing was that after we fed them, they began to play like how kids are supposed to play. When they were hungry, they were not playing but when they got fed they came out and they were playing, trying to kick things. So obviously there is the need support this children,” she concluded.
