The NGO distributed sumptuous jollof rice with meat and assorted drinks, hampers, gifts bags, money and more to the needy, orphans and widows in some parts of Obuasi during the festive season.
Speaking on the rationale behind the project, President of Mama Love foundation Rev. Dr. Love Konadu said, the foundation has over the years prioritize the interest and well-being of the less privileged in the society. She said “at Mama Love foundation we are committed to put smiles on the faces of the aged, widows and orphans especially this festive season”.

Aside the food distribution, the foundation also gave out capital to people to set them up and make them self reliant. This according to Dr. Love Konadu is part of their plans to unlock resources and create an enabling environment, so that young women are on a steady footing to meet their personal and economic challenges that confronts them.
Meanwhile Mama Love Foundation has organised dinner party for girls who are undergoing various forms of training under the sponsorship of the foundation.
The District Chief Executive for Obuasi East Honorable Faustina Amissah who sponsored the dinner party and was also present, lauded the Mama Love foundation for giving hope to the less privileged in the society.
She said a time has come for society to acknowledge the roles played by NGOs who have volunteered to offer a helping hand to the hopeless in the society.
Hon Amissah appealed to the Girls to take their training seriously and be disciplined in their pursuit for economic empowerment.
