For seven years running, management of S.O Frimpong Transport Limited has been providing relief items, including educational materials to children of the Save Them Young Orphanage in Tema.
This year, the story has not changed, as the Managing Director of the company, Mr. Randolph Obeng-Frimpong celebrated his birthday with the orphanage, donating educational materials and other items to the children.
“So we’ve been doing this in the last few years as a way of giving back to society and positively impacting the lives of the children to strive for greater heights as they grow,” Mr. Obeng-Frimping said.
He explained that S.O Frimpong, despite being a business entity, has always been willing to intervene in the affairs of the children in the orphanage.
“We were approached for a polytank by management of the orphanage and we assessed the situation and found out that they really needed the tank, so we provided it. Since then, we’ve considered the children as part of the S.O Frimpong family and we’ve been doing our best to make them happy each year,” he indicated.
Administrator of the Save Them Young Orphanage, Alfred Nyarko, commended S.O Frimpong for being a backbone for the children in the last seven years.
“We’ve been existing for 22 years, but a lot has changed when S.O Frimpong‘s intervention begun as they’ve been assisting us a great deal. We’ve not been able to settle our water bills some years back due to unavailability of money; the pipe was disconnected but the company gave us a polytank when we requested for it,” he said.
The orphanage is home to missing and abandoned children, from the Police, DOVVSU and the courts and depends solely on donations from philanthropists and donors.
The Save Them Young Orphanage was founded by Rev. Dr. Collins Opoku Amoabeng and is currently a home to over 80 orphans.
