The Church is made up of people with different professions. Aside spiritual needs, people in the church have social needs therefore to witness growth, members must come together in one accord to support and bring smiles to others.
In this spirit of rendering support to others, the Catholic Professional Guilds (CPG) as part of activities earmarked for its 5th anniversary celebration, is embarking on a charity outreach at City of God on Saturday, September 21 2019.
The CPG is committing an amount of ¢10,000 to care for the people at City of God. The outreach would see activities such as health walk, health screening, legal and finance clinic, and creative arts school to equip the people with some skills.
Meanwhile, Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia visited City of God yesterday assuring them of their importance to their Ghanaian economy.
Explaining the rationale behind his visit, Vice President Bawumia insisted, “slum dwellers’ lives matter. Every life matters to the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. It is the view of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that you are Ghanaians and you deserve to live and enjoy the services of government just like any other Ghanaian will enjoy. In the philosophy of President Akufo-Addo the life of one Ghanaian is not more important than the life of the other. Every Ghanaian matters. And we are here because the people living at Agbobloshie and old Fadama also matter.”
The Archdiocese of Accra started the City of God project almost 10 years ago. The church currently operates a Clinic, a KG and Creche for children of the traders and sellers, a Sewing school for women and the night adult education school for the traders and sellers in the slum.
