It was a blast of entertainment and exciting fun activities as AirtelTigo spent this Xmas with underprivileged children around the age of 1-12 at the Nsawam Orthopaedic Centre in the Eastern Region.
With so much activity on the line, AirtelTigo Ghana expressed their happiness towards this great opportunity with the kids. Speaking at the event was Miss Ethel Anamoo, the Chief Business Officer at AirtelTigo Ghana congratulated the staff members working the centre for their good works in taking care of the children, and their commitment towards the work they are doing all through to their hard work.
She said that, “We know it has not been easy, but we believe it’s been rewarding and fulfilling too. This initiative is part of our Corporate Social Responsibility and we are glad to offer support and spread the cheer of the festive season and bring hope to these children’s lives.”
She concluded that the Telecom company is very happy in sharing such a great moment with the centre.
“We are happy to do our little bit in giving back to society and create an unforgettable experience for these children. We hope that our donation and party will impact the centre’s operation and children’s lives positively.”
The children enjoyed great activities such as face painting, choreography, musical chair competition and other exciting activities.
Through its ‘season of love initiative’, AirtelTigo Ghana donated assorted food items such as bags of rice, beans, sugar, cartons of milo, milk, boxes of biscuits and oats, and also organized a warmed Christmas party for them.
To begin the event, the children welcomed the AirtelTigo staff with a nice talking drum and the Director of Orthopaedic Training Centre, Sister Elizabeth Newman, said “We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to AirtelTigo for their wonderful donation.”
She added that it is their sincere prayer that this initiative will go a long way to help change the lives of many children with disabilities in the country.
At the event, a thrilled young man with great enthusiasm performed an adorable rendition of Keche’s song, “No Dulling” which featured Kuami Eugene. The boy was Zackaria Awal, a 12-year-old boy who commented that this was a dream come true and would never forget this moment. He added that he felt the spirit of Christmas all around him. Zackaria was abandoned by his parents and has been in the centre at the age 2.
