Accra – 20, GNA -St Francis of Assisi Old Girls Association (FOGA) has donated assorted food stuffs and bags of used cloths among other livelihood items to support St Joseph’s Orphanage in Jirapa in the Upper West Region.

The assistance followed an appeal made by the Orphanage to individuals, groups and corporate bodies to help caregivers of the home provide sustenance to 17 children under their care.

The National President of FOGA, Mrs Fati Bodua Seidu, told the Ghana News Agency after the donation that the gesture was a way of giving back to the underprivileged in the « home community » of the Association.

She said leadership of the Association were deeply touched by the plight of the children and had to quickly mobilise some basic necessities to soothe their grim situation.

A bag of gari containing 40 bowls, two baskets of dried fish, 100 pieces of bread and five bags of used cloths among others were given to the Home.

Sister Matilda Z. Dery, the Sister in-charge of the Orphanage, expressed profound gratitude to FOGA leadership for their timely intervention for the upkeep of the children and appealed to other philanthropic organisations to come to their aid.

She noted that similar gesture demonstrated by St Francis Old Girls would help greatly in putting lasting smiles on the faces of the little children being nurtured to become future leaders of the country.

In another development, members of FOGA fully funded the 2018 Speech and Prize Giving Day of their alma mater – St Francis of Assisi Girls’ Senior High School in Jirapa – last Saturday.

According to authorities, the School has not celebrated the Day for about a decade, provoking old students to mobilise resources to revive the award giving ceremony expected to ignite the spirit of learning and hard work among the students.
