A Ho-based Kekeli Radio in partnership with Bravo’s Food, Delphine Enterprise and the listeners of the station have donated assorted items to two organisations in Ho.
The organisations are; the Ho Central Prisons and the Madamfo Ghana Children Shelter.
The items included; clothes, detergents, assorted drinks, toilet rolls, sandals, toothbrushes and pastes as well as exercise books for the children at the orphanage.
Mr Solomon Ahiable Mensah, Head of Programmes at Kekeli Radio indicated that the station and its public audience or listeners undertook the venture as a corporate social responsibility to alleviate the suffering and show love to the institutions in an era of COVID-19.
He said it was the second time the station and its listeners undertook such a venture to help the underprivileged in society with the first beneficiaries being children at Abor “In my father’s home,” last year.
Receiving the items, Mrs Happy Dzameshie, Director of Madamfo Ghana Children’s Shelter thanked Kekeli Radio, collaborators and listeners for the kind gesture.
She pleaded to other individuals and institutions to support them. “We are doing everything possible to make sure the children are safe from this COVID-19 so we still can’t do it alone without your support”
Rev Fr Nana Eboo, who received the items at the Ho Prisons expressed his heartfelt thanks to their benefactor and called for more support from other non-governmental organisations and public-spirit entities.
He said the inmates and the prison needed a lot of this most importantly they want a CCTV camera to help safeguard and boost the security measures of the facility.
