Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Star actress Yvonne Nelson has kicked against the practice where people make donations to the poor, needy, and orphans in the society only to go and publicise it.
She wrote on Twitter that such things must be done in secret as God has said, adding that it is only by that means that God would bless the giver.
Yvonne Nelson added that God sees what is done in secret, stressing that no other eye must see such donations.
“Pls donate to the poor/needy/widows/orphans etc, dont let an eye see it when you do, God in heaven sees it!this is how God our Father in Heaven blesses! most churches/pastors will use your money for their luxurious lifestyles. God sees and knows our hearts.”

For instance, Fella Makafui earlier wrote that she and her husband Medikal were going to donate to a group, and she shared photos of the item.
Musician Criss Waddle also disclosed that he was donating hand sanitizers to some hospitals and individuals in Accra and Kumasi.

Boakye also agreed:
