Volta Region: Kairos Rhema Ministry donates to lepers camp

Inmates of Ho cured lepers camp have been depending on donations from benevolent people to survive over the years

Taken away from social life, put under one shelter with people of the same living condition and without donations from good Samaritans, there are no foods to eat and no clothes to wear.

For inmates at the Ho cured lepers camp, this is exactly their situation. Although they are on Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP), they say the intervention is inadequate. 

A total of 56 inmates are in the camp. Some are cured while others have been under treatment for years. 

For them, the leprosarium is their home forever. Some of the inmates said they have been in the camp for decades without hearing from their family members and friends; literally, they’ve been abandoned.

On Friday, (13 October) a Canada and Accra-based church, Kairos Rhema Ministry, visited the camp and donated assorted provisions to the inmates.

The founder and leader of the church, Bishop Victor Goldsmith, said his “understanding of ministry work is to feed the children of God both spiritually and physically.” Therefore, he heard about the Ho Leprosarium and came from Canada to also give the church’s support.

The donated items were clothes, assorted detergents, sacks of cereals, including rice and corn, and cartons of tin fish with cooking oil.

After the donation at the Ho Leprosarium, Bishop Victor visited his alma mater, Awudome Bame E.P Basic School, and established a “pad bank” in the schools with the aim of giving sanitary pads free of charge on a monthly basis to every female student in the communities.

He also donated half a piece of new cloth and assorted food items to some 68 windows in the various communities.

The man of God and his team also donated assorted food items and toiletries to Good Samaritan Home in Adidome within the Central Tongu district.
