Accra, 26 January, 2022 / 9:03 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference (GCBC) have, in a collective statement, appealed for generous donations to help address the needs of victims of last week’s gas explosion that occurred near a mining town in the Southwestern region of the country.
In their statement issued Tuesday, January 25, the Catholic Bishops thank “all service providers and the donors for their prompt response and interventions.”
“In the spirit of charity, we wish to appeal to our Catholic faithful and all people of goodwill to donate towards the relief process currently ongoing to help meet the needs of the Appiatse victims,” GCBC members say in reference to the location of the fatal explosion in Ghana’s Catholic Diocese of Sekondi-Takoradi.
They direct that the donations “be sent through the Bishop of Sekondi-Takoradi for onward presentation to the victims.”
GCBC members acknowledge with appreciation the role played by the “Government of Ghana and other stakeholders to bring relief to the victims through their services and donations.”
