ABLE Initiative Donates To 1964 Independence Day Celebrations Bomb Victim, Elizabeth Asantewaa.

Published

on

Ghana witnessed a tragedy on 6th March, 1964 when a bomb exploded at the Accra Sports Stadium during an Independence Day Celebration. An innocent minor, Elizabeth Asantewaa, while she was presenting a bouquet of flowers to the President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, was the unfortunate victim when it blew her up instead of the target, the President of Ghana. She has since been through countless episodes of treatments, the most prominent being her trip to London for a surgery which was sponsored by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah after he took keen interest in her case, thereby making it a point to take care of her and handle all expenses. Unfortunately, he could not do so after he was overthrown in 1966, and later passed on to glory. Fifty-three years on, after the demise of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ms. Elizabeth Asantewaa’s health has deteriorated as she has been neglected by subsequent governments.

Mr. Samuel Awunor, the founder of ABLE Initiative, a Non-Governmental Organization that seeks to aid and support Persons living With Disabilities, chanced upon Ms. Asantewaa’s story and considered it an obligation to make her a priority for the Initiative. On 3rd March, 2019, he, together with Mr. Nathaniel Mensah, known in showbiz circles as ‘Ajeezay’, and other members of ABLE Initiative paid a visit to Elizabeth Asantewaa at her Dansoman Residence to interact with and present certain items to her.

Her predicament, indeed, is one to make mention of. As a victim of circumstance and with no one to readily come to her aid, she considers herself neglected and abandoned by the Government of Ghana. Due to her amputated limb and the other barely able to maintain her weight, she is unable to move and thus restricted to her porch. In our bid to assure her of our loyal support to her, she expressed bitterly how other private bodies have trooped in and out of her residence and assured her of same but have unfortunately failed to carry out their promises. It is our utmost desire, at ABLE Initiative, that Ms. Asantewaa is provided at least, with such basic necessities of life as a comfortable place to lay her head since she is confined to her mat day in and out as a result of her inability to walk. “They say material things are vanity, but sometimes they are necessary” she opined. All she needs now is some constant care and a consistent source of livelihood. A renewal of her hope in Ghana is worth considering, nevertheless, since her love for her country led her to this state. We therefore plead with all to provide any form of assistance to Elizabeth Asantewaa, be it cash or kind. Your kindness will go a long way to put a smile on her face and revive her hope in humanity.
Do reach out to her through the following medium;

China: Police Loot Church, Bury Bibles, Detain Members As Persecution Escalates

Published

on

China's total Christian population is now thought to number anywhere between 25 million and 100 million people.

Chinese authorities have launched yet another brutal attack on Christianity, looting the donations box of a church, buying Bibles, and detaining the senior pastor before shuttering the building.

The raid, led by the deputy governor of Zhecheng county and involving armed SWAT and anti-riot police, took place at True Jesus Church in Anping town.

According to Bitter Winter, 60 vehicles, surrounded the church with the police blocking off all the intersections leading the building. Authorities claimed that the church was in contact with foreign countries and was thus engaging in illegal activity. They ordered an immediate shut down by any means possible.

Anticipating the raid, 60 church members attempted to prevent authorities from entering the building by overturning benches at the entrance. Despite their efforts, 100 plainclothes officers stormed into the building, immediately broke into the donations box, and demanded to know where the church funds were held.

"As soon as they entered the church, they smashed the donation box and pocketed the money, which totaled thousands of RMB," said one member of the congregation. "They also questioned us about where all of our church's money was kept."

Then, officials ordered the officers to remove all surveillance cameras located inside the building, before mercilessly beating members of the congregation. "Fifteen believers were beaten to the ground, moaning in pain," Bitter Winter noted.

One believer, who was in her sixties, was beaten so badly by the authorities that she suffered two cracked ribs. Another elderly church member who attempted to help her was also beaten. The outlet also reported that officers slapped the face of a paralyzed believer in her seventies and knocked several others unconscious for at least half an hour.

Before leaving, authorities buried Bibles, hymnbooks and Christian literature in a large pit outside the church.

In an attempt to "Sinicize" Christianity and infuse it with "Chinese characteristics," China has arrested hundreds of pastors and church congregants. Additionally, dozens of churches have been demolished, with officials claiming that curtain buildings must be torn down due to new zoning laws.

In late March, authorities shut down a 1,000-member house church in Beijing, changed the locks and demanded that members in attendance sign a letter stating that they will no longer attend the church.

Last year, authorities in Beijing also banned one of the city's largest house churches, Zion Church, claiming it had refused to register with the government and was thus illegal.

However, the church's pastor, Jin Mingri, said officials never asked his church to register with the government "No [government] department has asked me to register the church in the past 10 years," he said.

Because of these atrocities, China ranks as the 27th worst country in the world when it comes to Christian persecution, according to Open Doors USA's 2019 World Watch List.
