More than 24,000 children in the Bongo district on Monday received belated Christmas boxes estimated at about 2.4 billion cedis from a US-based benevolent group, Operation Christmas Child's Box project.

The Bongo Area development Programme (ADP) of World Vision Ghana (WVG), in partnership with some local NGOs, facilitated the presentation.

The boxes, each valued at 100,000 cedis, contained wristwatches, pens and toothpaste. They were presented to children in nursery, primary and Junior Secondary Schools (JSS).

Describing the presents as a gift from God, the Bongo District Manager of World Vision, Ghana, Madam Benedicta Pealore, said the Bongo ADP existed primarily for the welfare of children, particularly in the areas of education, health, micro Enterprise development, Food security and advocacy.

"With the active involvement of our collaborators, we have brought significant interventions to children and parents in the Bongo area that have lessened the burden of rural life", she added.

The district Coordinating director Mr. Victor Sabog-Moore thanked the donors for the gift and prayed that the goodwill would be sustained.

He said the assembly would support education through the provision of infrastructure and teacher training courses and called for the commitment of circuit supervisors to improve the standard of education in the district.

The district director of education, Mr. Francis Dong-Batigr noted that the gifts would motivate the children to be punctual and take their lessons seriously.
