As part of activities marking his 60th birthday the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has donated assorted food, drinks, toiletries and other items to the Kumasi Children’s Home.
In lieu of his annual birthday lunch with cured lepers at his home in Accra, Dr Bawumia has also sent bags of rice and other items to the inmates of the Weija Leprosarium to help them celebrate his special day.
Accompanied by 2nd Lady Samira Bawumia, the Vice President handed over a number of items including rice (100 bags), sugar (20 bags), diapers (50 packs), tooth brushes (20 boxes), toilet rolls (20 packs), detergents (100 packs), oil (20 boxes), tinned tomatoes (10 boxes), water (150 cartons), assorted drinks (200 cartons) and a large variety of biscuits.
As well, to mark 60 years of life, Dr Bawumia donated Ghc 60,000.00 to help in the running of the Home, and pledged to provide a Coaster bus and also serve as Patron.
Everyone needs some form of help, but in my opinion those with the most need are these children in orphanages, who are here through no fault of theirs. That’s why I chose to spend my birthday with the children in this Home, as I am here in Kumasi on my birthday.
