Lepers Committee holds annual musical concert

Accra, Dec. 14, 2015 GNA – The Lepers Aid Committee has held its annual musical and choral concert to raise funds to construct a clinic for cured lepers at Nkanchina in the Northern Region.

The Committee solicited funds through many activities to enable them to cater for the needs of the neglected, cured lepers in the country.

Reverend Father Andrew Campbell, Founder of the Committee, said the Committee, a non-governmental organisation, was established to create awareness that leprosy was curable and that treated patients were non-infectious.

He called on the public to show love by associating with them.

Rev Campbell said last year’s support was to complete the housing project in Nkanchina and that this year’s contribution was to build a clinic in Nkanchina to aid the lepers who would be housed there.

He urged the public to contribute generously towards the proposed clinic for the lepers and thanked individuals, companies and the media for their immense contribution towards the project.

Mrs Matilda Amissah Arthur, wife of the Vice-President, thanked Rev Campbell for his time and resources towards improving the condition of lepers.

She called on the public to show love to the less privileged especially the lepers as Christmas approached.

The ceremony brought together the Winneba Youth Choir, Harmonious Chorale, and the National Symphony Orchestra for a night of contemporary and classical Christmas carols.
