Ahead of Easter Monday on March 28, Citi FM is reminding and appealing to its charitable and loyal listeners, to complete the good work started at the Baptist School Complex (BASCO), an orphanage at Trotor a hamlet near Suhum in the Eastern Region.
In 2013, the station and its contributors built a vocational training center for BASCO, meant to equip the orphans with the necessary vocational skills to enable them fend for themselves once it’s time for them to reintegrate into society.
Citi FM now hopes to equip the training center with the requisite tools needed to facilitate proper training, and therefore requests donations from individuals and particularly corporate entities that have such tools in stock to make donations in that regard. Carpentry, hairdressing and items for training in electrical work will go a long way to help.
The station will also support the Handivangelism Orphanage at Haatso in Accra, Mama Laadi Orphanage at Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region and Jehova Raffa Orphanage in Suhum.
Individuals and organizations can also support the Easter Orphan Project by donating cash or items such as toiletries, bags of rice, canned food, drinks, biscuits, detergents, stationery, mattresses, school bags, books, computers and other non-perishable items.
Donations can be dropped off at the front desk of Citi FM, located behind the Adabraka Police Station.
All cheque donations should be addressed to The Citi FM Foundation, Merchant Bank – Accra main branch, with the account number 00001/01/012295/40.
For more details, please call 0302226013.
The Easter Orphan Project is Citi FM’s annual social responsibility project, which raises funds and collects valuable items from its cherished listeners, to support selected orphanages and under -developed communities in the country.
Over the years, Citi FM has also extended help to the Akuse and Kumasi Prisons among others.
