SUCCESS & ACHIEVEMENTS
Rescue Mission 2000 is a non-governmental and non-profit organization registered under ONLUS, and its international quarters is based in Reggio-Emilia in Italy.
The Mission which was born barely 3 years ago has achieved success in the area of providing equal opportunities for the under-privileged in the society. Among the numerous achievements of the Rescue Mission is an outstanding ability to reach the rural areas where there is a high rate of poverty in Ghana (chosen as a pilot study in Africa) with food items, clothing and educational materials. The mission has sent food items like tins and bottled tomatoes, spaghetti, biscuits, beverages, and used clothing as well as school books and bags to the Becheam area in Ghana.
The items were in respond of the Rescue Mission project to help the orphanage, the poor the needy the afflicted and the widows in that region. The items which was sent from the Missions headquarters in Italy, Reggio-Emilia to be precise worth over €10,000.00 (about 100,000,000.00 Ghana cedis) was received by the chief of the town Nana Gyeabour Akoto from the representatives of the mission in Ghana Evang. Ebenezer Acquah who is the vice president in Ghana and Deacon Joe a member of the association. The chief of the town Nana Gyeabour Akoto thank the mission for their inmense contribution to the region and prayed that the mission will continue its offer to the region. He therefore, as his contribution to elevate poverty and illitracy from the region donated a vast land of 14acres to the association for the building of an orphanage home, a hospital, a school complex and a recretional centre for the orhanage.

The chief of the town Nana Gyeabour Akoto praised the Rescue Mission on her kind gesture and called on other association to emulate their example. Nana Gyeabour also pleaded with the Mission to come back again to help the town and its surrounding villages in their predicament. It is not only Becheam that has benefited from Rescue Mission aid. The Mission has also dispatched food items and beverages also to a hospital in a rural area of Ghana called Dwase, to help elevate the suffering of the patients at this hospital. The items worth millions of Ghana cedis was received by the chief and representatives of the hospital in the town from the representative of Rescue Mission known as Dorcas Amoah who is resident in Italy.
Botswana a country near South Africa has also received aid from the Mission to help the poor. A set of food item like spaghetti, tomatoes, and boxes of biscuits has been sent by the association to a small area called Tloweng to help the poor and the needy. During his three complete years of operation the mission has also helped a lot of people who were mostly prostitutes on the road in its area of operation. The women who could help in rebuilding of a nation were found on the streets of some cities of Italy and the mission has gone to their aid to stop them from practicing this evil but old profession in the world. These people, 21 in number over a period of 3years are now gainfully employed by companies in this region.
The mission has also help bring some people who were drug addicts from the streets and these includes both Italian and foreigners. For a example an Italian member for a Christian group has given his life to Christ as a result of the missions operations in that region. Another immense achievement is in the area of giving a spiritual advice to those who are drug addicted and the prostitutes who finds themselves on the road as a result of lack of document to work in government and private firms. This became possible as a result of the Missions constant and persistent counseling given to the person who finds themselves in these situations. Thanks to the president of the association Pastor Amoah Da-Costa who is a Pastor And whose spiritual experience has gone a long way to achieve such aim.
