Servaco PPS Supports orphans
Servaco PPS has supported an orphanage at Shai Hills in the Greater Accra Region.
The orphanage is run by two missionaries, Johnbull Omerefe and Stacy Omerefe, from the city of Refuge Ministries. Speaking at the donation, the Managing Director of Servaco PPS, Rudolph Matey, said the motivation behind the company’s benevolence is to give back to society. “We have values that guide us, and it is because of those values that we are here. One of the values we cherish most is to give back to our community, and we are here to give back to society. “So, as part of our corporate social responsibility, we are here to provide for these children and also to let you know that people have begun to acknowledge and appreciate the good work you are doing,” He said.
Stacy Omerefe, one of the missionaries, said they were touched by God to come and set the orphanage here in a bid to fight child-trafficking in Ghana and provide hope to the under privileged child.
She said children are not the only ones who benefit from the Ministry, adults and parents alike are also helped to come out of poverty and take care of their children.
“We offer school sponsorships for the children whose parents cannot take care of their education, because we believe every child must have good and quality education.
“And we help the families who are struggling financially and try to help them figure out what they can do; being it setting up a shop or learning a trade. We work to try and help them become empowered so that they don’t continue in the cycle of poverty.
“We have also provided construction jobs for our building projects and teaching jobs for the teachers” She said.
Mrs. Omerefe said the Ministry spends about ₵ 40,000 monthly on the orphanage. Some of the orphans expressed their gratitude to the company for its kind gesture.
John Kporti, one of the orphans said: “We thank the company very much for bringing us these gifts. We never imagined that someone would do such a god thing for us, so God bless them,” he said.
Kesse Durtumor also said “I want to say God bless them very much; we are very happy and thankful that they have remembered us,” he said.
The General Manager of the company, Kobina Nyantakyi, said the company spent more than
GH₵ 8,000 on the donated items. The items included food, exercise books, clothing and shoes.
