The Managing Director of FBNBank Ghana, Victor Yaw Asante, has stated that “the greatest need of children is love and affection”.

Speaking at the Music for Quality Feet (MQF) Charity Grand Ball held at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel & Spa in London – to raise funds for the provision of a recreational centre and library at the Nyame Dua Children’s Home in Accra – Mr. Asante lauded MQF for bringing people together to help others, especially children, so they enjoy the essentials of life and grow to realise their full potential.

Mr. Asante is also the District Governor for Rotary International District 9102, and recounted how Rotary started – linking it to how MQF evolved from sharing an interest in music and entertaining others to helping a charity every year for the past three years. “This year they have chosen to support the Nyame Dua Children’s Home. While charity usually starts with a focus on bricks and mortar, I see that MQF has started with a more personal, fundamental human need by showing affection to children at the Nyame Dua Children’s Home and making them feel loved.” He urged guests at the Charity Ball, which featured a fashion show, auction and other fun activities, to support this worthy cause.

Angelo Ekow Akyeampong, founder of the MQF Charity Ball, mentioned that MQF is focused on giving back to society and helping to lift up needy children at the Nyame Dua Children’s Home. He said: “The essence is to nurture the next generation and open the door to possibilities for them. In so doing, MQF is allowing the children to dream and grow”.

He emphasised that by setting these up, the seed MQF is sowing will grow into a tree that will nourish others. In essence, it will be a gift that keeps on giving. Mr. Akyeampong said that though resources are little, he feels optimism that if they are well-managed they will go a long way.

“I want to rally all of us gathered here to contribute our quota to make the project at Nyame Dua Children’s Home a reality,” he ended – thanking everyone that had supported MQF’s projects in cash and in kind.

MQF has over the course of its short existence raised and donated over US$25,000 to organisations in the USA and Ghana.
