Vice Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang has presented items to two organisations as part of her personal commitment to support vulnerable persons in Ghana.

Items presented went to a cluster of youth rehabilitation institutions in South Labone and the Makers Disability Foundation in Dansoman, all in Accra.

The cluster of youth rehabilitation institutions includes South Labone Girls Vocational Training Centre, Junior Girls Correctional Center and Shelter for Abused Children and Remand Boys.

These institutions are administered by the Department of Social Welfare and houses children between the ages of 15 and 18. The Facility caters for children who have suffered sexual and emotional abuse, human trafficking and abandonment.

The Maker’s Disability Foundation was founded in 2016 and cares for about 100 children who have Cerebral Palsy.

Explaining her rationale for taking a break from her campaign activities to target these two institutions, Professor Opoku Agyemang said the gesture was part of her personal life long commitment to ensure that those more susceptible to economic and social struggles receive a hand of support.

She also took the opportunity to interact with the children and care givers. Professor Opoku Agyemang said irrespective of the circumstances, vulnerable Ghanaians, when accorded a fair chance, have the capacity to contribute to the nation.

The items included bags of rice, cartons of oil, bags of beans, and assorted toiletries. An undisclosed cash donation was also made to both institutions.
