The Member of Parliament for Sawla-Tuna-Kalba constituency in the Savannah region of Ghana Andrew Chiwitey has donated some bags of rice, T- rolls, packs of diapers, soft drinks, bottle water, box of mackerel among others to, the Nakwabi orphanage located in the Sawla Tuna Kalba district.
This donation was done following reports by the media about the struggles the orphanage is going through.
The baby ADOM story which made headlines few months ago attracted the attention of the lawmaker.
Baby ADOM is the child that was dumped at the Tuna market toilet in May 2022.
As a result, Tuna Vaglakoori, Jirah Dachargu Moses Mango, a Denmark based resident of Tuna, adopted baby girl who was abandoned in a pit of a public toilet at the Tuna market.
The baby was discovered in a plastic bag with the umbilical cord still uncut after her incessant cries drew the attention of a user of the public place of convenience.
After rescuing the baby, she was sent to the Sawla Police Station and was handed over to the health center for medical examination.
The suspected day-old baby was later handed over to the Nakwabi orphanage for proper upkeep and attention.
The excited MP said he made the donation on the last day of 2022 to say goodbye and to also welcome 2023 in a grand style.
He disclosed that this is not the first time he was donating to the orphanage but the story of baby ADOM really simplified his decision to once again, come and support the children.
He appeal to other stakeholders, NGO’s, CSO’s and government institutions to come to the aid of the orphanage.
The In Charge of the orphanage Rev Mary Naalosegme thanked the MP for his support and appealed to other MPs, government officials to come support the children.
