The International Movement of Catholic Students (IMCS) Pax Romana, Ghana Federation has made a donation to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. The donation was made through the Little Steps Foundation which is located on the premises of the hospital. The donation was part of activities that were undertaken during the 2019 National Consultative Meeting which was held at Adom Fie, Kumasi, Ashanti Region. Items donated to the Unit included toiletries and assorted drinks and biscuits.
Also, an undisclosed amount of money was donated to the Unit through the Foundation. Presenting the items, National President of the International Movement of Catholic Students (IMCS) Pax Romana, Ghana Federation, Samuel Paul Gyamfi, mentioned that the donation was aimed at putting smiles on the faces of the children.He added that it was necessary that they donated to the children as God had made a responsibility of the church.
“As Catholics and Christians, for that matter, we have a responsibility towards these kids. They deserve to be happy and it is our responsibility to make them happy and feel loved, he said in an interview.
Receiving the items, Dr. John Adabie Appiah, who is the chairman of the Foundation, expressed his excitement with the students. He narrated the ordeal that some of the children were going through and called for more support. The students later went into the wards and personally distributed some of the drinks and biscuits to the children. Parents of some of the children, who received the drinks and biscuits, were happy with the gesture and prayed for God’s blessing on the students.
“I’m very happy seeing students take up the initiative to donate to their little brothers and sisters here. May God bless them and help them in their academics and everything they set their minds to do,” one parent said.
