AirtelTigo Ghana reached out to children at the Orthopedic Training Centre in Nsawam and donated a package of rice, sugar, beans, Milo chocolate drink, evaporated milk, oats, and biscuits. The visiting AirtelTigo staff also treated the children to the warmth of a Christmas party with a fun package that included face painting, choreography, musical chairs and other exciting games. The outreach was part of the company’s ‘Season of Love’ initiative.

In remarks made at the celebratory event, Chief Business Officer at AirtelTigo Mrs. Ethel Anamoo applauded the teachers and management of the centre for their hard work and commitment to taking good care of the children. Mrs. Anamoo said the AirtelTigo recognized that their responsibility had not been easy, but hoped that the management and staff found their work rewarding and fulfilling. She added that the AirtelTigo wanted to provide support for the centre and “spread the cheer of the festive season” to bring hope to the children.

“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 operations and children’s lives positively,” Mrs. Ethel Anamoo said.
