In response to a request by a medical doctor at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for the church to support the treatment of a cancer patient at the hospital, who eventually passed away in the course of time, Christ Temple decided to support the Children’s Cancer Unit of the Department of Child Health of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
In consultation with the management of the unit on how best Christ Temple could support the unit, it became evident that most of the patients could not afford the high cost of medications and treatment drugs. On that basis, Christ Temple decided to support the unit with an amount of Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (Ghc 5,000.00) every month for a period of one year towards the cost of full treatment.
The launch of this project was officially performed by Dr. Otabil on 24th December 2010 during the Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh programme at Christ Temple which is held every year to raise funds among the congregation and invited guests to support needy communities and institutions in the country as an expression of the love of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
On 26th February 2011 which marked the 27th anniversary of ICGC and coincidentally was also observed as Founder’s Day by the church, a cheque of Ten Thousand Ghana Cedis (Ghc 10,000.00) was presented to the management of the Children’s Cancer Unit of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
