COURT AND COUNCIL 102 OF HOLY CROSS PARISH, TAMALE DONATES TO KPANDAI LEPROSARIUM
Court and Council 102 of the Noble Order of the Knights and Ladies of Marshall which is indexed to the Holy Cross Parish in Tamale have made a donation to the Kpandai Leprosarium.
The council and court presented a cash One thousand Ghana Cedisraised from collections during the ten-day Novena to St. Anthony of Padua and earmarked to support the upkeep of inmates of the Kpandai Leprosarium.
The donation was made on behalf of Court and Council 102 by the Grand Knight, Brother Joseph Nchor and the Noble Lady, Sister Albertina Ninang to the Leprosarium through the Archbishop of the Tamale Archdiocese Most Rev. Philip Naameh.
The Archbishop thanked Court and Council 102 for the kind gesture and encouraged other societies to emulate the gesture extended to the Leprosarium.
Most Rev Naameh urged society and families of inmates to show greater commitment in supporting the needs of inmates of the Leprosarium to help protect their human dignity.
Present at the function was the Parish Priest of Kpandai, Rev. Fr. Richard Baafi who also received the donation from the Archbishop for submission to the Leprosarium.
Speaking after receiving the donation from the Archbishop, the Parish Priest encouraged society to speak out against the plight of the inmates of the Kpandai Leprosarium.
He questioned the seriousness of government in expanding health care infrastructure when existing infrastructure in Kpandai is left to go rotten. He backed his argument by pointing to the fact that there was no reason in setting up new Health Colleges in surrounding communities of Kpandai when the Leprosarium has the capacity and the facilities to serve as a Health training college.
The Archbishop hosted representatives of Court and Council 102 to breakfast at his residence after the celebration of Mass.
