The Wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Matilda Amissah-Arthur, has urged parents in the country to help their children to become future leaders.
She said as parents and guardians we must act as role models for our children.
Mrs. Amissah-Arthur gave the advice on Saturday during a visit to Kinder Paradise, an orphanage at Prampram, in the Dangme East District of the Greater Accra Region, when she joined them celebrate their 16th anniversary celebration and also to interact with the children.
She advised the children in the orphanage to learn, work hard and give maximum respect to their caregivers. Mrs. Amissah Arthur took the opportunity to thank the various sponsors who have made it possible for Kinder Paradise to succeed in care giving to the poor and the less privileged in society for a better future of the children.
Kinder Paradise, is a Christian charitable institution, which cares for impoverished, marginalised, socially neglected and children deprived of their rights.
Mrs Amissah-Arthur, a friend to Kinder Paradise for the past four years, said it had been her practice to visit the orphanage at least twice in a year, and called on Ghanaians to come on board and help children in orphanages.
She said as part of her cooperate social responsibilities to the children this Christmas she donated food items – bags of rice, cooking oil, candies, drinks, as well as some educational materials such as pens, pencils, and exercise books to support the children.
Mrs. Amissah Arthur used the occasion to wish the children and the staff a prosperous year, and God’s blessings.
