As part of activities marking the 37th Farmers’ Day Celebrations, the Eastern Regional Directorate of Agriculture has donated various food items to Living Hope International Ministries, a Cape Coast-based Orphanage.

The items include vegetables, fruits, tubers and roots, toiletries, cooking oil, and cash of GHC5,000.00.

Mr Seth Kwame Acheampong, Eastern Regional Minister, who made the presentation, said the gesture was to thank God for sustaining the region in its quest to be self-reliant in food production.

The Region had for years, had a bountiful harvest in maize, cassava, yam, cocoyam, plantain, and vegetables like tomatoes, garden eggs, pepper, and okra.

He urged the managers to continue to inculcate positive moral values in the children to grow to become responsible adults.

Do not give up regardless of challenges but forge ahead, build the confidence and determination of the children under their care to enable them to succeed in life, he said.

The Minister was accompanied by the officials of the Regional Directorate of Agriculture led by Mr Henry Crentsil, Eastern Regional Director of Agriculture.

On behalf of the facility, Mr Kwame Earl Shirk, Director expressed gratitude to the Eastern Regional Team for the gesture.

The facility is dedicated to distributing food and seeds, providing homes for orphans, medical care, financial assistance for education, village evangelism, church planting, leadership training, and other avenues of Christian ministry.

Under its baby care programme, he said a huge support for malnourished babies and those who have lost their mothers have been supported.
