Dr. Bawumia Joins Rev. Fr Campbell To Feed Street Children On Valentine’s Day

The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia through his spokesperson, Dr. Gideon Boako has said the Vice President will join Rev. Father Andrew Campbell of Christ The King Parish to feed some underprivileged children and adults on the street at Fatima Garden, Accra.

According to the spokesperson, the Vice President started engaging the underprivileged especially those with leprosy in his house to dine and wine with them during the Christmas festivities.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show, Dr. Boako said the Vice President will take the opportunity of the program dubbed “CTK Soup Kitchen” to talk to the street children, advise and also encourage them to be responsible citizens irrespective of their situations.

“So this ‘soup kitchen’ is started by Rev. Father Campbell to feed street children all the times and so the Vice President will join the Rev. Father to eat with the street children today on this Val’s Day so that he will demonstrate his love for them as some of them are orphans and children from broken homes,” he revealed.

He added that “The Vice President is encouraging them to live responsible lives as they can rise up to be great people in the country . . . the Vice President understands that his religion through Prophet Mohammed talks about love and Jesus Christ also preaches about love and so he knows that all religious groups must understand the need to love and live in peace”.

Meanwhile, on the official Facebook Wall of Vice President Dr. Bawumia, he wrote “On the morning of St. Valentine’s Day, I joined Rev. Fr. Andrew Campbell, Parishioners and some underprivileged children and adults at the Christ The King Church’s daily Soup Kitchen, at the Fatima Garden, Accra”.

The "CTK Soup Kitchen" is an initiative of Rev. Father Andrew Campbell with support from the Church to feed and help the less privileged, especially street children, and bring some cheer into their lives.

I was touched and pleasantly surprised by the musical and other talent displayed by these children, who through no fault of theirs, are forced to survive on the streets.

Let us show love and care for each other. On our part, Government will continue to engage with all stakeholders as we work to provide shelter, education and skills training for our less privileged brothers and sisters.
