Citi FM appeals for donations for 2018 Easter Orphan Project
Easter Orphan Project, an annual social responsibility project organised by Citi 97.3 FM to support some orphanages in the country will be held on 2nd April, 2018.
Every year, listeners of Citi 97.3 FM are asked to donate in kind or cash with items such as toiletries, bags of rice, gari, maize, canned beef, detergents, bags of sugar, milk, biscuit, drinks, disinfectants, washing powder and other items that could help with their upkeep.
The orphanages; Mama Lardi in the Upper East Region, Handivangelism in the Greater Accra Accra, and the Baptist School Complex (BASCO), in the Eastern Region, have been the major beneficiaries of this initiative.
Citi FM, through the support of its listeners and corporate Ghana, has built a vocational training center for BASCO, and the centre is intended to cater for training in carpentry, plumbing, electrical work, hairdressing, and masonry.
The station which has been supporting the orphanage for over a decade, donated items, comprising toiletries, books, stationary and foodstuff to the orphanage which is headed by Reverend Victor Ofori-Amoah, during the outreach last year.
Mama Laadi Foster Home in the Upper East Region, also had their share of the kind gesture.
The Easter Orphan Project has since 2008, supported the foster home in kind and cash through contributions of corporate organizations, philanthropists and Citi FM’s cherished listeners.
Last year, they 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.
An amount of Ghc4, 000 cedis, in addition to assorted items including confectionery, toiletries and food items worth thousands of cedis which caters for some 60 children, were donated to Handivengelism in the Greater Accra Region.
