Mrs Lordina Mahama, the First Lady, has donated food items and an

unspecified amount of money to seven Orphanage Homes in the country.

The orphanages include Anfaani and Tamale Children's Home in the

Northern Region, Let the kids smile at Nkoranza, Frank May and

Bethesda Homes at Techiman in the Brong-Ahafo Region, as well as Osu

Children's Home and Christ Faith Forster Home in the Greater Accra


The items include bags of rice, sugar, cartons of milk, toiletries and laptops.

The donation is an annual affair by the Lordina Foundation for the

less privileged, especially during the festive seasons.

A statement from the Office of the First Lady and copied to the Ghana

News Agency in Accra, said Mrs Mahama's foundation remained committed

to supporting less privileged children.

"Taking care of the less privileged is my passion, I will continue to

support them," the statement quoted Mrs Mahama as saying.

It said the managers of the orphanages expressed their appreciation to

the First Lady for the gesture.

The statement said: "At the Osu children's Home, Madam Sharon Abbey,

who expressed her joy, appealed to corporate organisations to continue

to support the home.

Mr Kofi Adu-Boahene, Director of Christ Faith Forster Home, also

praised the First Lady for her kindness.

He expressed gratitude to Mrs Mahama, saying, "apart from the festive

seasons, she occasionally donates items to the home, for which we are

very grateful."

According to the statement, inmates of the Gambaga Witch Camp were not

left out, as they received rice, clothing, mats, Milo, cooking oil,

and an unspecified amount of cash from the First Lady.

The statement said Nana Oye Lithur, Minister for Gender, Children and

Social Protection, donated the items on behalf of the First Lady.

"Mrs Mahama wants elderly women to also celebrate Christmas as all

Ghanaians will do," the statement quoted the Minister as saying.

The statement said the First Lady was also facilitating the building

of a children's block to house toddlers, which would be completed in

the middle of next year.
