A renowned Non – Governmental Organisation (NGO) in the country, Organisation for Child Fellowship (OCF) on Tuesday January 17, 2017 organised a forum at Spintex in Accra to stress on the need to give to the less privileged in the society. The programme which saw lots of people in attendance was geared towards restoring hope to the poor and vulnerable.
Miss Gabriella Larfaque , Head of this organisation in a statement to Ghanaians touched on the need for all and sundry to smile with the likes of orphans, widows and physically challenged persons by devoting their effort and time to their plight. “It is not always mandatory to even give out cash as a token to the vulnerable, your smile and time is enough” Miss Gabriella indicated.
She again expressed the need for Christians to give. According to her, there is more blessings in giving than receiving. Proverbs chapter 19:17 “Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed” was used to throw more light in this regard. She was quick to use Psalm chapter 41:1 “Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the LORD delivers him” to stress on the benefits of giving and many people congratulated her for the numerous acts of benevolence.
Many individuals had their lives transformed through inspirational quotes from Miss Gabriella Larfaque. As a result of this, they were happy to go out there and demonstrate love to their fellow man. God enjoys seeing us love each other, a member said.
Meanwhile, Miss Gabriella pleaded with the government to assist NGO’S for the greater good of widows and orphans in the country. This according to her will go a long way to assuage the sufferings of the vulnerable in our society.
Miss Gabriella Larfaque challenged widows and orphans to be true to their maker. According to her, God has the interest of orphans and widows at heart. Believe in God and your story will change. Never be down hearted, God watches over you, she added.
