As part of the donation, the group spent time with the children and advised them on possible career choices while motivating them.
The members of the foundation also had lunch with the children and other fun activities.
The Vice president of the Chrissy Foundation, Albert Kwabena Frimpong presenting the items to the orphanage, reiterated the group’s commitment to providing for people in need in society, especially orphaned children as they have to rely on donated items for their daily survival.
He explained that the gesture was to contribute to providing a safe environment and sound mind for the beneficiaries by ensuring that their basic needs were met.
The gesture, he said, represented the foundation’s commitment to making positive impacts in the lives of others particularly the needy.
