As part of activities marking this year’s Easter celebrations, the management of Class Media Group (Class 91.3FM, Accra100.5FM, Kumasi104.5FM Adehye FM, Number 1 FM and CTV) has donated assorted food items worth over GH50,000 to six orphanages in Greater Accra.
The selected orphanages are the Teshie Orphanage, Potters Village, Chosen Home, Osu Children’s Home, Save Them Young, and Christ Faith. The items included clothes, bags of rice, assorted drinks, biscuits, toiletries, toys, and cooking oil.
The exercise formed part of the Celebrity Orphanage Easter Funfair event, conceived by the management of Class Media Group (CMG), which took place on Monday April 17 at the Efua Sutherland Children’s Park and was meant to entertain and support orphans in the Ghanaian society.
Celebrities including Lucky Lawson, Vicky Zugah, Obaapa Christy, and others graced the occasion to entertain the gathering. Speaking during the event, General Manager for CMG, Nana Apeanti explained that the company is not in existence only to make profit but to also give out to the society, hence the health screening.
In addition to such events, he indicated that it has been the mission of the company to ensure that the general public is educated as a way of empowering people to make the country and the entire world a better place to live. For this reason, all the outlets under the group have made it a point to develop content geared towards educating the public.
“We are providing education to the people on radio to empower them to effect changes in the communities they find themselves. Every content we generate is geared towards ensuring that people are educated,” he said.
He further indicated that since the inception of the company, the management has embarked on several gestures as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). He said an amount of GHS50,000 was donated to single mothers to assist them in educating their children and also to serve as seed capital to start a business.
“CMG gave out GHS50,000 to single mothers to enable them support their children’s education. This was also used as seed capital with which many started some small businesses with to enable them make ends meet.
Class FM visited big and small hospitals on Mothers’ Day to support our mothers in the hospitals. We have come not only to make profit but to ensure we contribute to make Ghana and the world a better place for us to live,” he said.
