The Generosity Family, a US-based charity foundation, has made a significant donation to the Amoasi family in New Takoradi, a suburb in the Western Region of Ghana.
The donation, which was made on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, by the Chaplain of the Komenda College of Education, Reverend Wilson Kotei Kortey, and other representatives, was specifically for Patricia Amoasi and her mother, Florence Biney.
According to the story of this family, which was shared on Facebook and caught the attention of the Charity Foundation, Patricia and her mother, along with four siblings, have been sharing a single room and struggling to make ends meet. With their father having passed away quite some time ago, their mother, Florence, has been the sole breadwinner for the family. However, the cornmill machine that serves as her source of income broke down, and there was no support available to repair it.
When approached by the representatives of the Generosity Foundation, it was discovered that Florence was selling cassava and corn dough that she was grinding herself with the mill.
The breakdown of the mill made it impossible for her to continue this business. Patricia had also been seeking support to learn hairdressing to help support her mother and siblings, but there was no one available to help her.
Touched by their plight, the Generosity Foundation sent donations in kind and cash to support Patricia and her mother. The foundation purchased a new machine for Florence, along with bags of maize to recommence the business. Patricia was also enrolled in a hairdressing course, with all the necessary items procured for her by the foundation. Money was also given to her to cater for herself and other necessary expenses throughout her apprenticeship.
The Amoasi family expressed their profound gratitude to the Generosity Family for their timely intervention. Patricia promised the foundation to live up to their expectations and complete her studies safely and soundly.
The generosity of the foundation has not only provided practical support but also given hope to a struggling family in Ghana.
