He said the company over the years has been donating to the SOS village based on the agreement signed with the village to provide the organisation with gifts for every Christmas and Easter.
?For now is all about SOS village, because I have about four years to finish with them before any other orphanage ?he said.
He said Easter is about healing, forgiveness of sins, sharing to the needy there Christians must take this opportunity to show kindness to all.
According to him Christianity is not easy as some other religious body sees it to be, but since Ghana is a Christianity country must take advantage of resurrection and lives a Christ like attitude.
?I Have never regretted for donating to the needy and will never regret in the sense that is gift from God and my late mother also taught us how give back to society . I have received message from Canada, US and other country from children who had the opportunity to travel outside through SOS to show their appreciation and the importance of given.? He said?
?My mother?s death came at a shock but showing appreciation to the needy must go on but trust me I will never stop given to the needy?
Mother of the SOS who received the items on behalf of the organisation, thanked the company for its kind gesture.
She expresses hope that the donation would go a long way to improve the condition of the inmate since this has been challenging year for them.
She therefore called on other corporate institutions to come to the aid of the village.
