NGO Shirt4ABoy, Dress4AGirl donates to Village of Hope orphanage

Foster kids at the Villlage of Hope Orphange in Bawjiasi had a big surprise party with the CEO (Richard Murphys Addae) of "Shirt4ABoy,Dress4AGirl" foundation came through to fete with them by surprise.

The NGO, aimed at providing clothes for street kids and kids in orphanages is an initiative to collect clothes from people across all circles and distribute to the 'less privileged' kids.

Speaking to the media, Richard Murphys Addae explained that, "at some point in time we all need help from somebody. No matter how rich or poor anyone is, they get to a point in life where they need some help from another person. And as humans, we should challenge ourselves to helping our fellow humans. It has always been my long thought dream to raise an initiative for charity and I've been looking forward to champion that course and this is the best time for me to fully step out and take on the task.

"I have decided to set up this foundation to collect clothes across all circles and distribute occasionally to foster homes and street kids. Everyone has an old shirt or an old dress somewhere they might not need again and we need to give them out to people who would need it - it doesn't mean collecting just old clothes. I've been receiving some packages already and you would be amazed some people actually buy brand new clothes to support our project and thanks very touching.

"I am using this medium to officially announce our existence as an NGO - Shirt 4 a Boy, Dress 4 a Girl - apart from collecting clothes from everyone among the general public, we are also looking at key personalities like pastors (clergy), opinion leaders, celebrities, musicians, actors, footballers, politicians and other notable figures, who have lots of clothes in their wardrobe they don't use anymore, so we give it out to the kids and that alone would inspire the kids to live up to their tasks and work their way to the top knowing that 'key figures' somewhere cared about them and believed in them to share their clothes with them. This donation is my first and there is more to come. This is just a token to call for support from the public to join hands with us to help these kids."

After celebrating his birthday with the kids, he donated items from food to toilette and clothes.
