As part of efforts to touch base with the needy in society during the Easter festivities, Write for World, a Non-Profit Organisation on Friday, April 7, 2023, donated some clothing items, footwears and school bags to children of the E. P Rehabilitation Project Centre in Deme, a suburb of the Ho Municipality.
The donated items, valued at GHC 5,500.00 was meant to put smiles on the children of the Deme community as they prepared for Easter picnic and also clothe the world of the poor.
Speaking at the event, the head of programmes of Write for World, Mr. Elka Akasreku, said the gesture was to climax the first quarter of the year, 2023, and to instill the organisation’s core values in the pioneers of the organisation’s piloted community education project, dubbed, the Write for WorldEdu Project which is meant to offer free tuition to disadvantaged Senior and Junior High Students within the Ho Municipality and its environs. “It is the very reason management of Write for World came to the ceremony with beneficiaries of our piloted community education project”, Mr. Akasreku said.
The Executive Director of Write for World, Mr. Jonas Mabe, told the gathering that the organisation took into consideration the significance of Easter to the Christian Community, hence their resolve to come and show them love . “For Jesus Christ to die so we are saved teaches us the greatest love for humankind. The least we can do as christians and believers is to let the love of Christ reflect in our actions”, Mr. Mabe said.
Mr. Mabe told the community that the donation by Write for World was also in line with the organisation’s “Helping Other Pupils Everywhere (H.O.P.E)” initiative where clothing items, school uniforms, schools bags and educational materials are donated to vulnerable school children in deprived communities to among others boost enrolment in community based schools, reduce burden on poor parents and enhance confidence in children in schools.
The Executive Director used the occasion to ask parents to encourage their wards to take advantage of the Write for WorldEdu Project which comes in handy for the have-nots in our communities.
Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries of the donated items, the Catechist of the Evangelical Presbyterian facility at Deme, Mr. Gilbert Hodor, who could not hide his happiness thanked Write for World and encouraged the organisation to keep up the good works. He asked for God’s blessings for the volunteers and management of Write for World.
Mr. Ocloo-Dzaba(Ray Makosa), an Elder of the E. P congregation also commended Write for World for their good cause which will go a long way to bring relief to the vulnerable and needy in the communities.
