Kasapa FM’s Osomafo Kingsley Agyenim Boateng and his listeners have donated a cash of 31,980 cedis to the Christ the King Leprosarium in Accra.
The amount according to Osomafo Agyenim Boateng was raised through his Anidaso Show which comes off every week day from 10am to 12pm.
Narrating how the money was raised, the renowned gospel musician and radio presenter said his team received the direction from God to raise the money together with their listeners and donate to the Leprosarium after they have embarked on a one week fasting and prayer.
Agyenim Boateng said the theme and word for the fasting and prayer was based on 2nd Kings chapter 5 and 2nd Kings chapter 7.
“We were directed by God to make a thanksgiving donation here so that Father Campbell would pray for everyone who contributed to raising the money. “I am confident everyone who played a role in seeing this materialise would be extremely blessed”, he explained.
Receiving the cash donation on behalf of the Leprosarium, Rev. Father Campbell said the donation has come at a better time because the COVID-19 pandemic has made the running of such facilities very difficult especially when persons in there need to be given the needed care to ensure their safety. “We haven’t received any donation like this through the whole Pandemic. This is wonderful”, Rev Father Campbell said.
He expressed gratitude to the team from Kasapa FM for the donation and prayed for them. “To all your listeners, staff and benefactors, we say thank you and God bless you. The money received will be used to buy food items, toiletries and other essential items to Carter for not only Christ the King Leprosarium but other Leprosariums across the country that my office supports”, Father Campbell said.
According to Father Campbell, persons living with leprosy are one of the most stigmatized in society even after they have received treatment and recovered from the disease.
He said because of the stigmatization, very few individuals and companies make donations to such facilities but bemoaned how they needed such kind gestures to ensure the survival of persons living under their care.
