The Executive Director in charge of Stakeholders at the Village of Hope (VOH) Orphanage, Kwaku Sarkodie has appealed to Christians to remember the orphans and the vulnerable children in society as they celebrate Easter.
“The care of an orphan is not the responsibility of one person. If we believe children are gifts from God then all of us should help take of care of them.
“We should ask ourselves do I want it for my child, is it good for my children. If it is not good for my children then it is not good for the orphan” he urges Christians and the privileged in society.
Kwaku Sarkodie was speaking on the Easter Special Edition of the Sunrise Morning Show on 3FM with Alfred Ocansey.
He disclosed that about two hundred and fifty children including; orphans, trafficked children from the Volta Lake, rescued street children and a four days old abandoned baby are undergoing, Basic Education and Vocational training in auto mechanics, leather works, hair-dressing and sewing at Village of Hope Orphanage.
“As I speak with you, Village of Hope is taking care of about eighty children from day one to JHS in the residential home, forty in the Senior High School, and about fifty in tertiary institutions“
