A Volta Regional fundraising campaign to mobilise funds to support the construction of the National Cathedral (NC) has been launched in Ho.

Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, Volta Regional Minister, speaking at the launch urged all sons and daughters of the Volta land to support the campaign and donate towards the construction of the edifice.

He said the National Cathedral had lots of blessings for the country, thus it was important for the citizens to support the project.

The Regional Minister said Ghana needed to do something to glorify God, and that the National Cathedral was a facility that would glorify the name of the Lord, so everything had to be done to bring it to fruition.

Reverend Dr. Joyce Aryee, Executive Director, Salt and Light Ministry and member of Board of Trustees of the NC, in exhortation, charged Ghanaians to give their hearts out to the Lord.

She said God deserved everything given, but the first most important thing is to give to God was hearts.

She said it was no doubt that God created man in His image and invested his character in man, therefore “we must allow his character to work through us.”

Dr Aryee said the NC would serve as a tent of meeting place for God’s people, quoting the book of Exodus, she noted that it was a privilege to contribute towards the construction of a place for God.

The Reverend Minister asked Ghanaians to reflect on the Lord’s gift to the nation, examine their hearts and give to support the project.

Dr Paul Opoku Mensah, the Executive Director of the NC, updating the participants about progress, said the NC was no longer an idea as the project had been awarded and work had already begun.

He disclosed that the first person who donated towards the project was a son from the Volta region and was optimistic that the Region would lead in the fundraising campaign.

Dr Mensah said donating towards the project was an opportunity for the citizens to have their names on the construction of the edifice.

The Executive Director said the facility when completed would “allow to put God at the centre of our nation building efforts,” enhance Christian unity and serve as a platform to deploy Christian values.

Dr Letsa and his wife donated an amount of GHC 20,000.00 towards the project while Municipal and District Chief Executives in the Region supported it with GGC 20,000.00
