Renewal Christian Center, Maryland USA, headed by Rev Dr ABK Appiah has provided a new borehole for Countryside Orphanage, Bawjiase, Central Region, to help cut down the cost of water bills.
The charity organisation has also provided a booster pump to the orphanage to facilitate the provision of water to the ladies’ bathrooms.
In addition, RCC has given the orphanage a new look by undertaking some much-needed painting and renovation works.
It also provided ceilings for the boys’ dormitory to ease the hitherto unbearable heat experienced in the afternoons.
Headed by Rev Dr ABK Appiah, RCC became connected with Countryside Orphanage through Rev. Sammy and Mrs Florence Adjepong of Alpha Beta Educational Centers, Accra.
With their global vision of changing lives and helping people to realise their full potential, RCC set up an SHS Educational Fund on 6 July 2005 to support children at the orphanage.
It was a full scholarship that took care of admission and tuition fees; provisions, pocket money, house dues, WASSCE registration fees and other related expenses for the orphans.
Through the fund, 38 children have successfully completed their senior high school courses.
Sixteen of them have successfully completed universities and training colleges across the country.
One of them had first-class honours in Business Administration and proceeded to obtain a Master’s degree at the University of Ghana, Legon, in 2019.
Another female student also obtained a 2nd class upper degree in Procurement.
Some also obtained degrees in Analytical Chemistry, Bachelor of Commerce, Agricultural Technology, Accounting, Marketing and HND ICT.
Some just completed their national service and are looking for jobs.
Others also want to further their courses and need sponsors.
The orphanage says Renewal Christian Center “is one of the most generous churches we have ever been associated with”, adding: “Their sponsorship has given an opportunity to help several needy children to reach greater heights in their academic pursuits”.
The orphanage said, “not only have they provided educational sponsorship but RCC has also, from time to time, helped with the payment of our utility bills”.
“They have also, with the help of Alpha Beta Educational Centers, hosted parties to entertain and encourage the children”, the orphanage noted.
