UK based Ghanaian gospel musician Sonnie Badu has promised to support the Osu Correctional and Juvenile Centre.
According to the singer, the children in the three homes (the Boys, Girls remand and Shelter for abused children) are the future leaders of this country and they need the maximum support. He expressed sadness at the plight of the children in the three institutions.
At the Boys and Girls Correctional Home, Sonnie advised the children to be of good behaviour and believe that God has a plan for their lives, hence finding themselves in the homes. He also prayed with them, prophesied over their lives and encouraged them.
As a way of bringing Christmas to the deprived in society and putting a smile of their faces, Sonnie Badu who is now under the Smartty’s Production and Management, owned by Selassie Ibrahim feted three institutions in the country.
The institutions that benefited from the kind gesture are the Help Age Ghana, the Boys and Girls Correctional Home, also known as Osu Shelter and the Surgical ward of the 37 Military Hospital.
At each of the institution Sonnie also known as the true worshipper presented bags of rice, oils, detergents, confectionaries and an undisclosed amount of money. In addition inmates of the various institutions were feted with cooked rice, drinks and snacks.
The highlight of Sonnie and his management’s Christmas was spending time with convalescing patients at the 37 surgical wards, specifically the Tamakloe and Anoff Wards. In all 80 patients of the surgical ward were feted. Sonnie who went round each hospital bed to present the Christmas gift also sang to some of the sick patients who requested for him to sing specific songs from his repertoire.
Some of the inmates expressed the believe that his visit to the hospital would aid in their health. Sonnie Badu also made a presentation of an undisclosed amount of money to the nurses on duty at the surgical ward.
Madam Georgina Mensah, and Ebenezer Adjetey-Sorsey, the Centre Manager for the Osu Correctional institute and the Executive Director for the Help Age Ghana, including Captain Amegashie and Lieutenant Colonel Hammond of the 37 surgical ward expressed their appreciation to Sonnie Badu and his team for remembering them during the Christmas season. Madam Georgian Hammond reminded Sonnie to keep his promise of supporting the centre.
