The Founder and Chief Executive Officer of R.B.H Group of Companies Robert Batong Hor, on Saturday donated items comprising stationery, food stuffs, electronic appliances among others, to the ‘Power of Love’ Orphanage at Gbetsile, Michel Camp. Robert Batong Hor described the gesture as a necessary part of any success story.
Speaking at the gathering yesterday, the C.E.O of R.B.H Group of Companies Robert Batong Hor, stated that his life story was evidence of the favour from God and therefore, thought it wise to extend a helping hand to the less privileged on this special occasion as the two were very much related. “It is always better not to forget where you are coming from. When I look at my life, where I have come from and the challenges I have faced, including the fact that God has led me to this point, I thought it necessary to give back to the society as a reminder of God’s favour”, he said.
The Founder and Manager of the ‘Power of Love’ Orphanage Madam Obaatapa Amanda Mensah, was grateful for the donation and asked for more support to improve the facility. “We thank the Almighty God and Uncle Robert for choosing our home. Indeed, this act of kindness that you have shown to these young ones is going to be a memorial before God. Also, we are calling on other like – minded individuals and organizations to support us in expanding our building because, the number of children here is increasing; we cannot turn our back on the children when they are here because this is our duty”, she said.
The C.E.O of R.B.H Group Robert Batong Hor, expressed his joy in supporting the orphanage and said that he would remain committed to the cause. “Today, I am very happy to have the opportunity to give back to the society and this will not be the the last time because I will be the friend of this orphanage, and periodically I will come back to see the progress of both the children and the orphanage. So, please study and work hard because in life, hard work always comes before success”, he said.
The donated items included stationery, gas cylinders, detergents and cleaning items, mattresses, school bags, microwave ovens, blenders, fridge, kitchen utensils and electric kettles.
