Award- winning Ghanaian international Gospel icon, Sonnie Badu , has adopted the Chosen Children Center, an orphanage at Darkuman , a suburb of Accra .
The adoption , which formed part of his philanthropic projects , would see Sonnie Badu taking care of major needs of the orphanage .
Sonnie Badu , in the company of his mother and family members , made this known during a brief donation ceremony held in the premises of the orphanage on Tuesday .
He used the occasion as part of the season of giving to present food among other items and cash to the Managing Director of Chosen Children Center, Gertrude Mensah – Bonsu .
According to him, his mother Julia Agyemang has been a loyal partner of the Chosen Children Center where she always touched lives, hence he thought it laudable for him to step in and also offer help to the kids .
I thank God for the wonderful work He is doing through the Badu Foundation; I must say this is one of the many projects across Ghana, Nigeria , and Africa at large. We want to give hope to the next generation to secure the future of Ghana and Africa. I further pledge to offer support every month to this orphanage ,
Sonnie Badu said .
On her part , Madam Gertrude Mensah – Bonsu was very grateful and thanked Sonnie Badu and his team especially his mother , Julia for the kind gesture .
She revealed that her center , which was established about nine years ago , now takes care of over 60 children , who are mostly orphans , street children , abandoned children and school drop – outs .
She urged other organisations to also come to the aid of the center since a lot needs to be done for the children .
