Accra, Aug.15, GNA - Royal Family Kids Ghana, a Non-Governmental Organisation has ended a
three- day camp for orphans and vulnerable children with a call on institutions
to support such children without public recognition.
Ernest Tay, the Camp Director, who made the call said Ghanaians must cultivate
the habit of giving freely without expecting anything in return or taking
pictures of these orphans to show a good gesture done.
He said such
acts rather stigmatised against the vulnerable orphans and called on
individuals and institutions to desist from that.
The camp, which
was the third edition of the Royal Family Kids Ghana, was aimed at treating the
children in a royal manner with more fun, food and safety as well as giving
them the chance to feel loved and cared for.
who doubles as the Senior Pastor of the Glorious Harvest Ministries church,
told Ghana News Agency that the church organised the event for the children to
enable them feel part of society.
The camp was
held for about 23 orphans from the ages of six to 12 years.
This is the day
children under these circumstances are given the chance and freedom to play
safe and have much fun away from home, he added.
He said the
camp was used as an opportunity to give the children good food, to ensure their
safety amidst exciting moments without looking at their negativities.
Rev Tay said
there were orphans and vulnerable children out there who were hurting and as
such people should show concern and care for the children to feel loved by the
Mrs Salomey A.
Dogbatse Asante, the National Coordinator Royal Family Kids, said much as the
camp was aimed at giving the children the opportunity to have fun, they were
also mentored to unearth their individual interests.
She called on
parents to do their best to ensure that their children grew up as responsible
party was organised for all the kids and each of them was given a birthday gift
to climax the occasion.
