Penplusbytes, on Wednesday, December 17, 2014, paid a visit to the Teshie Orphanage in Accra where they donated assorted items including food and drinks, bags of rice, toiletries and more.
The gesture which forms part of the Institute's corporate social responsibilities comes in response to the need to contribute to making the life of the less privileged children, numbering about 35, living under the care of the home a bit more comfortable.
Speaking at the short presentation ceremony, Jerry Sam, Director of Projects at Penplusbytes, reiterated the importance of the donation saying; “the purpose of our visit sits perfectly in our overall aim of making a change in society through various initiatives and projects, and what better way to usher the Christmas festivities than sharing with these little ones”
A visibly elated, Mrs Janet Parker, could not hide her joy at the gesture. She expressed her profound gratitude to Penplusbytes for what she termed as the orgainization’s ability to identify the unique challenges of catering for these children whose dreams should still be kept alive by those who have the means. She asked for continuous support from both individuals and corporate entities to also look their way.
