Apam (C/R) May 21, GNA – Ruth Taylor Development Foundation, an Accra-based humanitarian non-governmental organisation has presented assorted items worth GHS 2,500.00 to the Mephibosheth Training Centre (MTC), an institution for physically and mentally challenged children, at Apam in the Central Region.
The items included; bags of rice, cooking oil, detergents, soft drinks, boxes of biscuits, toiletries, amongst others.
Ms Ruth Taylor Nyarkoah, the Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation, said the donation was expected to help relieve the school of its financial burden and insufficient logistics that the school had.
She said the organisation is committed to supporting the physically challenged and less privileged children in the society.
She urged Ghanaians to show love, tender care and support to children and adults with intellectual disability and not to discriminate against them.
Ms Hannah Jehu-Appiah, who received the items on behalf of Mr Joseph Jehu-Appiah, the Founder of MTC said the timely donation would solve some of the socio-economic challenges facing the children.
Ms Jehu-Appiah said the school, established in 2005, offered therapy and mobility devices for persons with disability and assisted children with autism.
She said the centre trained children from Kindergarten to Junior High School and currently had a population of 85 students both male and female.
She commended the NGO for the gesture and called on other benevolent institutions and philanthropists to come to their aid to help develop the children.
