Ghanaian gospel singer Herty Borngreat has pleaded with her fans the world over, especially Christians, to make a concerted effort to show some love to a needy child during this Easter season.
“We are likely to get carried away by the daily challenges of our individual lives and the current economic situation to an extent we would forget that no matter how hungry we are, there is a child next door hungrier than us. The greatest way we can celebrate this Easter season is to show some love and provide some succour, no matter how small, to a needy child just to put a smile on the child’s face.
“This sacrifice of help to humanity is the true essence of the season and should be considered more important than merrymaking or the several entertainment activities all around us,” Herty Borngreat told NEWS-ONE in an interview.
The gospel singer explained further that Christians celebrate Easter to remember the sacrifice Jesus Christ made and His resurrection and that it would be unfortunate if the celebrants of Easter would not make a little sacrifice to help others.
The gospel musician explained the specific category of children in need she was campaigning for help for:
“We do not have to look far before we find a needy child we can be of help to. There are families with children who do not have cloths to wear, food to eat or even shoes for their feet. Sometimes you meet a young teen who cannot afford to buy a simple deodorant or excuse me to say menstrual pad.
“There are thousands of brilliant children who may be going wayward mainly because they have no one to advice them and mentor their lives or show them the slightest form of love and care.”
She continued: “we drive through town with your children in your car and find other kids their age selling under the scorching sun and risking their lives to chase after moving cars. There are too many of such needy children who are suffering ore than those in the orphanages and I am sure that our individual and collective help to them would put a meaningful smile on their faces to at least make life a little easier for them. That temporal happiness they would feel because of your help would forever be appreciated by them.”
Herty said “we have to give not because we have in abundance but because we know how it feels to be in need. Sometimes we do not know the extent of relief and happiness our little help cause in the life of our beneficiaries.”
“It is my prayer that we all have a very happy Easter season and come out with renewed energies for life. We can only hope and pray God protects us from the usual road carnage that increases around festive seasons and it is my prayer that Jehovah God gives each of us success according to our definition of success”, the gospel singer concluded.
