Furniture and décor company, Orca Deco, has presented bedroom furniture worth GH¢125,570.00 as well as mattresses worth ¢12,750.00 donated by Latex Foam to five orphanages located in the Greater Accra metropolis and its surroundings.
The beneficiary orphanages are the Good Shepherd Child Care, Kaya Child Care, Royal Seed Orphanage, Osu Children’s Home and the Echoing Hill Village. They were selected by customers and the general public through voting on selected digital platforms.
This gesture forms part of activities to mark Orca Deco’s 15th anniversary and the company’s commitment to consolidating its corporate social investments of orphanages in Ghana.
The furniture and décor giant explains that aside from helping more people live a better life in their homes and offices, its brand symbolises protection for people it considers family, hence the decision to support selected orphanages based in Accra with bedroom furniture so as to make the lives of the children warmer, safer and more comfortable.
The company adds that anytime customers visit their showrooms and make purchases, they [the customers] contribute to the development and growth of Orca Deco hence it was morally right for it to give back to society and in this case to orphans.
At a ceremony to handover these items to the beneficiary orphanages, the General Manager of Orca Deco Ghana, Walid Didi, expressed his outfit's joy in contributing to the well-being of orphaned children.
