The management of Oheneba Kasempa Enterprise, producers of the alcoholic beverage called “Abe Nsuo”, last Friday August 16, 2013 presented assorted products worth twenty thousand Ghana Cedis (two hundred million old Ghana Cedis) to the management and pupil of Accra’s only government orphanage Osu Children’s Home.
The items were made up of one jumbo size poly tank, two sets of flat screen computers, some detergents, Milks, exercise books, school bags, diapers, assorted fruit drinks, fresh oranges, bags of rice and cooking oil.
Presenting the items to the management of the orphanage, Mr. Alex Yaw Tinkorang, the Managing Director (MD) of Oheneba Kasempa Enterprise said, even though the presentation of the items was an annual affair on the calendar of the company as part of its Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR), this year’s presentation had to be hurriedly organized to alleviate the plight of the children, because of the newspaper publications that suggest that funding to the home had not been forth coming.
Mr. Tinkorang related that it would have been bad on the part of the company to sit unconcern and watch innocent children suffer, because funding from government had delayed.
He said, last year the people of Ghana honoured the company by massively patronizing its flagship brand and this type of gesture is how the company can also gives back to society.
He promised patrons of alcoholic beverage that the company would soon introuduce new brands and freebies to reward patrons.
He expressed gratitude to patrons of their products for making Abe Nsuo brand one of the leading alcohol brands in the country.
Accepting the items, Miss Kpedekpo Aninnie, the Assisatant Supervisor of the home said, one of the major problems facing the shelter is the shortage of staff, as well as money for the purchase of items, for feeding the children.
She said, the home which houses one hundred and forty-six children is in dire need of a bus to carry the students on their daily activities outside the home.
She said, the number of pupil keep increasing and decreasing by the day because of police investigations.
She said, sometimes missing children are bought to the home for shelter and later taking away by the police upon finalizing their investigations.
