The orphanage, established by the Catholic Church in 1997, provides shelter and vocational training to homeless and street children, equipping them with functional skills in areas such as hairdressing, barbering, car mechanics, electrical mechanics, and soap manufacturing.
Rev. Kanmwaa Cosmos, the Director of Hopeland, expressed gratitude on behalf of the children, highlighting the challenges the organization faces due to limited funding, primarily stemming from its lack of popularity.
He thanked Mr Ahenkorah for responding promptly to their plea for support, emphasizing that children from the streets may face difficult circumstances but are not without potential.
During the donation, Mr Ahenkorah expressed surprise upon discovering the existence of such an institution within the Tema West Constituency.
He promised to celebrate his birthday with the children in July, demonstrating his commitment to the orphanage's cause.
Additionally, he pledged to address a water problem that some of the students had identified as a significant issue. Mr Ahenkorah appealed to the Ghana Water Company to assist in clearing any outstanding bills and reconnecting the orphanage to the national water grid.
The MP encouraged the children to strive for excellence and become valuable members of society. He commended their decision to acquire vocational skills, emphasizing the importance of realizing their ambitions.
