Reverend Monsignor Alex Bobby Benson is a Priest of the Koforidua Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church and Founder and Director of Matthew 25 House in Koforidue, Ghana.
He will be here next weekend at all Masses, August 25 & 26, speaking about the center, which he founded over 18 years ago. The facility educates, provides medical screenings, supplements, counseling, and meals, as well as spiritual, emotional and financial support to people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) as well as Orphans and other Vulnerable Children (OVC).
The Center was founded as a way to reckon with the stigma which faces marginalized in the country and to fulfill the words in Matthew 25:35-40 of the New testament... “For I was hungry you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, in prison, you visited me, what you do to the least ones you did it for me.”
In his words “One of the saddest things that can befall any human being is to be neglected and ostracized by either family members or society or both as a result of sickness or mishap.”
Since the Center’s beginning, its occupancy has grown from only nine PLHIV to over 90 and is still increasing. The over 95 Orphans and Vulnerable Children receive educational support, with fees, stationery, transportation and clothing provided by the House.
He is now constructing a 24-Bed Hospice at Osabene-Koforidua Eastern Region of Ghana, which is now at roofing level.
