School of Business in the University of Cape Coast donated assorted items worth about GHC3, 000 to Padre Pio Rehabilitation Centre for leprosy and childcare at Elmina on valentine’s day.

The Chairperson of the facility Sister Monica received the items on behalf of the centre and appealed for government support

The Padre Pio Rehabilitation Centre for leprosy and childcare at Elmina is therefore calling on the government for funds to run the facility
The centre largely depends on donations and supports from groups and individuals during festive seasons to feed the inmates

Their challenges include lack of beds and foodstuffs

The Elizabeth Special Needs Day Care division of the facility also accommodates 12 pupils with 63 reporting on daily bases from nearby villages

50 children and aged are on special
