The Waris Foundation, headed by Prince Mukadi Gbramoni, has donated items worth GH¢ 10, 000 to the Manhaliya orphanage in Tamale. The items included bags of rice, boxes of indomie, gallons of oil, assorted drinks, biscuits, bags of sachet water, tins of milk and milo. The donation of the items is part of a series of philanthropic activities earmarked by the foundation.
Speaking at the presentation, the 27- year old FC Porto striker advised the children to take their studies seriously and desist from acts that will hinder them from achieving their goals. He further encouraged them not to let their current status in life be an obstacle to attaining greater heights. He stressed that they should improve and strive to go beyond their limits because there is always room for improvement, regardless of their current situations.
Abdul Majeed Waris encouraged the authorities of the orphanage not to hesitate to contact him for any support. The FC Porto striker, who has just finished his loan spell at Nantes FC, has been into philanthropic activities within the Tamale metropolis for some time now. He has made giving back to society a culture for himself. Abdul Majeed Waris has been excluded from Ghana’s senior national team in the ongoing AFCON.
Receiving the items on behalf of the leadership of the Manhaliya orphanage, the Care taker of the home, Uztaz Abu Sofian, thanked the Porto Striker for his loyal and generous service to the orphanage, saying the children have benefited tremendously from the foundation’s support and prayed for God’s love and protection for him.
One of the orphans, Mahfuz who was inspired by the striker’s charisma and benevolence, expressed his profound gratitude to the team for the support, promising to take their studies seriously.
Meanwhile, the team earlier presented a signed football jersey and some undisclosed amount of money to the Strikers’ adopted orphan, Abdul Hakeem, who suffers from tendinitis, for his upkeep.
