Moses Danso-Afriyie is a young man who was born about 32 years ago in a small community known as Kwamang within the Bekwai Municipality of the Ashanti Region of Ghana. He is a teacher by profession, who has been teaching Information and Communication Technology for the past 9 years at the Junior High School Level in Ghana.
Moses was born with a disability, specifically an upper limb deformity. Due to his disability, his family was not willing to take care of him until Moses met Pastor Kofi Owusu-Afriyie, the director of King Jesus Charity Home (KJCH).
Pastor Kofi warned the family not to hurt Moses and added his own name “Afriyie” to Moses’s name, to indicate that Pastor Kofi’s eyes were on Moses and he promised to support Moses’ family financially and to help take care of him. Since that time he has taken good care of Moses through the support of the Ghanaian Children’s Trust. Whilst Moses did not live at King Jesus Charity Home, he got all his financial and educational needs met by the Ghanaian Children’s Trust and Pastor Kofi.
Moses is clear that had it not been for the donors who support the Ghanaian Children’s Trust and the support he has received from KJCH, his educational dreams would have ended all because of his disability. In his own words: “If I can now stand before my students and the children at KJCH and teach, I say Kudos and bravo to all who made this dream a reality. I am by this acknowledgement urging all people to support children in similar situations to what I went through and help bring a smile to these people in the near future as I am smiling now. Thank you.”
This is truly a success story. Moses is now married and has 3 children who have the chance of a good future, thanks to the help he has received from Pastor Kofi and the Ghanaian Children’s Trust.
