Accra, June 19, GNA – Reverend Ashford Tawiah Smith, the Resident Pastor of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) has said although fathers’ played a key role in the upbringing of children, their works had been overshadowed because they worked behind the scenes.

« Growing up I thought it was my mum who took care of us. However, I later found that my mum received the money she supported us with from my dad. We don’t see him when he is doing that so we assumed it was from our mum. »

Reverend Smith said this when he wished Dr Mensah Anamoah Otabil, the General Overseer of the ICGC church a happy father’s day.

He added that some mothers were responsible for the lack of acknowledgement given to fathers and advised mothers to encourage children to celebrate their fathers because they were the heads of the family and leaders in the society.

Reverend Tawiah Smith also commended the men’s fellowship by Emmanuel Norteye Adumoah for organising a blood donation exercise to provide blood for the blood bank.

Stephen Danso, a Senior Blood Donor Recruitment officer from the National Blood Service (NBS) said blood could not be artificially manufactured or substituted hence the need for frequent blood donation.

He said persons from the ages of 17 and 60 years could donate blood, however before the donation they would undergo free medical screening before blood was taken.

« Every day at the Southern Area Blood Centre of the National Blood Service, 150 units of blood is processed and sent to the hospital. And this requires that we have more than 150 units of blood each day. »

He lauded the church for constantly organising blood donation exercises to support the blood bank.

« The most precious gift one can give to someone dying is blood. And the fathers of the ICGC restoration temple have shown great love to the society by their commitment to supporting the blood bank » he said.
