Speaking at a colourful ceremony at Yawmire to present the items to the underprivileged children, the Leader of the Sunyani Area Children’s Ministry of the Church of Pentecost, Pastor Kwabena Opoku, commended the PIWC Children Ministry leadership and the entire congregation for the gesture.

Pastor Opoku, who is also the Yamfo District Pastor of the Church of Pentecost, noted that children’s welfare and their moral upbringing is of paramount importance to the Church since the church believes that children are the future leaders of the family, church and the nation.

The Resident Pastor of PIWC, Pastor Clement Achim Gyimah, described the donation as a fulfillment of the scriptures by demonstrating the love of Christ to the underprivileged children and their families.

Pastor Achim Gyimah asked the school authorities to take good care of the items and encouraged the children to learn hard to achieve their God given potentials in the future.

Elder Clement Oduro Coffie, PIWC Children’s Ministry Leader, explained that the church was touched by the plight of the children during an evangelism outreach programme in the village.

He was full of appreciation to the church as well as corporate institutions such as the Fidelity Bank, Ghana Statistical Service and the staff of the Sunyani Regional Hospital for supporting the vision.

The Headmaster of the school, Peter Fosu Gyeabour and the Assemblyman for the area, Kumah Hayford, who were overwhelmed by the gesture, thanked the Church of Pentecost for the support.

The duo described the donation as unprecedented in the history of the school and the community.

They however appealed to government and other philanthropists to help the community in the provision of borehole water, electricity and reshaping of the road leading to the village.

Present at the event were Mrs. Victoria Abio Tetteh, a Member of the National Executive Committee of the Children’s Ministry, Mrs. Achim Gyimah, Sunday School children and their teachers, some elders and members of PIWC.
