The management and inmates of the Mama Laadi Foster Home in the Upper East Region, have lauded the Citi FM Easter Orphan Project, saying it remains their major source of assistance for survival.
As an annual ritual, the project has since 2008, supported the Foster Home in kind and cash through contributions of corporate organizations, philanthropists and Citi FM’s cherished listeners.
The Foster home this year (2017), received valuables including several bags of rice, millet, detergents, cartons of milk, large quantity of confectionery and sanitary pads worth Ghc7,000, and an amount of Ghc4,000.
Citi FM’s Richard Mensah on Easter Monday presented the items to management of the Foster Home.
He said the station’s management remained committed to assuaging the plight of the destitute in society through the Easter Orphan Project and other channels.
Richard Mensah urged the children never to lose hope in life and strive to become responsible citizens through education.
The team also mentored the children on how to discover themselves outside the orphanage.
Two other orphanages, Baptist School Complex (BASCO) an orphanage at Trotor, near Suhum in the Eastern Region, and the Handivangelism Orphanage at Haatso in Accra, will also receive separate donations.
In 2013, the station through the support of its listeners and corporate Ghana, built a vocational training center for BASCO, and the centre is intended to cater for training in carpentry, plumbing, electrical work, hairdressing, and masonry.
