The lives of orphans, aged, and street children matter greatly to members of Rescue Volunteers of Ghana.
This is according to the country coordinator of the group, Lydia Tsotsoo Odoi Tettey.
She made this known when members of the Non-Governmental Organization visited and held an award ceremony at the New Life Nungua Children’s Home International.
The event also created an opportunity to present some assorted items to children within the orphanage home.
“We identified the needy in the community, and we came together to assist them. We are into so many areas of alternative livelihood. The youth we identify are enrolled in apprenticeship per the talent they exhibit. They are trained in it and we set them up. Within this year, the people we have trained are the ones we are awarding today and the orphans will look up to them to encourage them. That is why we are here at the orphanage. We have about 54 graduands. As volunteers, we contribute our salary, time, etc. to provide meaningful lives for these individuals in the vulnerable category”.
On his part, the founder of New Life Nungua Children’s Home International, Nii Afotey Botchway II lauded the gesture by Rescue Volunteers of Ghana.
According to him, measures are being put in place “to add other vulnerable individuals such as widows and people with disabilities to our programmes.”
“With support from the NGO and Krowor Municipal Assembly, there are a whole lot of things we are putting in place. We believe that in 2021, we will be able to factor the issues with the widows and the vulnerable into our programme. Already some items and support have been given to the PWDs in the community”.
