Citi FM has donated assorted items and cash to two orphanages – The Baptist School Complex and Orphanage (BASCO) at Trotor and Hopeway Ministries Children’s Home at Haatso as part of the station’s annual Easter Orphan Project.
The items donated included bags of rice, gari, maize, cartons of biscuits and drinks, and hand sanitisers.
The station also made a cash donation of GHS20,000 to the two orphanages for the running of their daily activities.
As a way of showing appreciation to the station, BASCO unveiled a stone expressing gratitude for the help the station has extended over the years.
“We erected this stone to show our appreciation and to also let you know that we want the name of Citi to stay here forever,” the Director of the Orphanage, Revered Victor Ofori-Amoah said.
Over the years, Citi FM has supported the orphanages with cash donations, stationery, food items, toiletries, and other domestic items collected from the station’s listeners and clients who make generous contributions towards the project.
The Easter Orphan Project is part of Citi FM’s Corporate Social Responsibility.
The visit to the orphanages was limited to Citi FM staff this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
