Finally the UK based Ghanaian gospel artiste Maame Serwaah has honoured her promise to donate all the proceeds from her album launch to the Akropong School for the blind musical department.
The ceremony was a touching one as pupils from the Akropong School for the blind showed extreme enthusiasm with gratitude when Maame Serwaah donated the items to the institution.
The items which included white cane, mp3 players, drum pedals, audio recorders, trumpet, Tambourines, talking clocks, talking calculators, microphones, microphone stands, bricks and snacks is to help the institution give better care to the children musical department.
Maame Serwaah was able to provide eighteen items from the list of 21 items that the school authority provided to her as a list of needs. She also performed one of her popular songs on her ‘garments of praise’ album, “Papaye” with the students and it was powerful.
Receiving the items on behalf of the school was the headmistress of the Akropong School for the blind Mahela Narh. In her acceptance speech, she said, “On behalf of the entire student body and faculty, I want to say thank you Maame Serwaah for showing the students such kindness. God bless you.”
The ceremony had dignitaries like the host of ‘Nsem Pii’ show on Happy FM, Pastor Nyansa Boakwa and the founder and general overseer of Prayer Palace, Prophet Emmanuel Adjei.
The gospel artiste made it known that giving is a part of her and she advised other gospel musicians saying, “If God gives you a gift and you get benefits from it, you must also give back to the society in the form of donations especially giving to the less privileged in the society.”
