Searchlight Africa Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, has donated various items to children who live in the slums around the Accra Arts Centre.

The items include a desktop computer, footballs, new and second-hand clothes.

The Chief Executive Officer of the foundation, Mr Frank Jerry Oloko, together with three Belgian philantropists, made the presentation.

Mr Oloko said the donation was in fulfilment of a promise the members of the foundation made when they paid a visit to the Arts Centre in November last year and saw the living conditions of the children.

He said the foundation was willing to assist the children who were mostly school dropouts to return to school and study up to the level that they would be able to reach.

Mr Oloko added that as part of its aim to help needy children in deprived communities in the country, the foundation had donated educational materials to the children of Nipanekro, a community in the Central Region, and had also put up a three-unit toilet facility for the people.

A resident, Mr Joshua Padi Tettey, who received the items on behalf of the children, thanked the foundation for the kind gesture.
