The Orthopaedic Training Centre, OTC where persons with different physical disabilities are reformed, went into distress as support to the centre to cater for abandoned children was cut due to Covid-19.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the centre, Eliezer Asante, the difficulty led to a freeze in new admissions because they struggled to manage the centre with the depleted stock of supplies.
‘We did not have support coming in as it should be,but but we understood our donors because of Covid-19. The management of the centre became difficult as internally generated funds also ceased and supplies were running out of stock. The children were our worry,’’ he told crimecheckghana.
In order to help the OTC achieve its aim of making the centre a place of hope for the outcast, Crime Check Foundation, CCF went to their aid with assorted items including food, clothing and toiletries.
Appreciation by the centre
Receiving the items, Mr Asante said the donation will give them a big relief. ‘’Most of the patients come from poor homes so even in our distress we had to support them and not drive them away. The children are timid because of their condition so we have to support them to take their proper place in society. We believe that these items will lessen our difficulties,’’ he said.
Mr Asante appealed for further support, especially, sanitary wares to help patients to maintain proper hygiene.
The donation was made possible through CCF’s donors, both home and abroad.
The General Charity Series is used to seek support for struggling individuals, families and institutions to get relief.
