Wide spreading pandemic Covid-19, has slowed down activities in several institutions of which the Christ the King soup kitchen finds itself.
The ban on congregating, especially in churches, has deprived the soup kitchen from its funds, which comes mainly from the weekday Mass offerings and donations.
On the occasion of his birthday, 27th March, Rev. Fr. Andrew Campbell appeals to all friends and benefactors of the soup kitchen for support to fund the children in this difficult and pandemic period. According to Fr Campbell, it takes about GHS1,000.00 a day to fund the facility.
Supporting the poor and underprivileged in Ghanaian society, is a priority to Rev. Fr. Andrew Campbell, parish priest of Christ the King Catholic Church and chairman of the Lepers Aid Committee.
In 2016, he started the soup kitchen at Christ the King Parish to cater for the street children. The soup kitchen, provides one hot meal a day for the street children. The patrons of the facility are also supported with healthcare, counselling and skills training to get them off the streets. Some have been enrolled in school while others have been reunited with their parents.
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus in Ghana and the attendant measures taken by the government, patronage of the soup kitchen has increased.
Donations can be in cash or kind (food and toiletries). Cash can be sent to Rev. Fr. Andrew Campbell through mobile money on 0243326643 (Andrew Campbell).
