Bethany Christian Services (BCS) family-based care organization, has commissioned a new office complex for its operations.
The edifice, located at East Legon, Accra, boasts of ancillary facilities such as office spaces, a reception area, washrooms, an area to park vehicles, and conference halls among others.
It formed part of efforts by the organization to expand its services to reach more families.
Speaking at the programme the Country Director of BCS, Naa Adjorkor Mohenu Esq said the new facility would enable her outfit serve more families and also accommodate more volunteers.
“We had many people wanting to come and offer us voluntary services but due to the lack of adequate space, we could not let them in but the story has changed now. This facility is bigger and better and will make it possible to expand our services,” she added.
She said her outfit was committed to strengthening families in Ghana because of the belief that when families are sustained, they build stronger communities.
Poverty, she said, was one of the reasons why some Ghanaian children found themselves living in institutions adding that the welfare of every child in the country is what BCSG looked out for.
Madam Mohenu said, “Our priority in Ghana is to keep children stable and safe because we believe that family is essential to the total wellbeing of every child.”
The country director assured that with the new office in operation, her outfit would reach out to more vulnerable families and provide the necessary support to children living within such families.
Commissioning the facility, Rev Richmond Tettey, District minister, Abeka Presby Church, congratulated the family-based care organization for the achievement and hoped that the facility would make it easier for BCSG, to carry out its responsibilities satisfactorily.
He also commended BCSG for its contribution so far, in improving the lives of children in the country.
Bethany Christian Services is a Christian faith-based organization that works to keep families together through services in many countries.
In Ghana, these services include Adoption, Foster care, and Family Preservation, and Empowerment.
