FRANK Media, operators of Adepa Fm at Techiman, Dinpa Fm in Sunyani both in the Brong Ahafo Region, as well as Sompa Fm in Cape Coast in the Central Region, have presented fowls and rice valued at GH¢4,106 to 306 widows and six widowers in the Brong Ahafo Region.
The gesture was to help the beneficiaries and their children to celebrate Christmas like fortunate families and also to encourage them not to lose hope in life.
Apart from the donation, the widows and widowers were also entertained and given inspirational messages by some ministers of the gospel who advised them not to lose hope.
Presenting the items at a ceremony at the forecourt of Adepa Fm at Techiman, Mr Kwame Baffoe-Adjei, the Events and Promotions Manager of Frank Media, who deputised for the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr Frank Asare, said the gesture formed part of the social responsibility of the company.
He said the company had decided to focus on the vulnerable group in the society to let them feel that they were part of the society and that they had not been neglected.
Mr Baffoe-Adjei said the management of the company had planned to use the platform to form an association for the widows and widowers, adding that that the company would continue to assist the less privileged and marginalised in society.
He, on behalf of the board, management and staff of the company, wished all widows, widowers and orphans merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
In the words of exhortation, Pastor George Asare Duah of the Apostles Continuation Church International and Pastor Emmanuel Oppong of Fountain Gate Chapel International branch urged the widows and widowers not to grieve over the death of their partners but to have faith in God, since God had plans for their future.
They also encouraged them not to give up but rather work hard to take care of their children to make them responsible citizens of the nation.
Pastor Duah appealed to the government to make provision for vulnerable groups, especially widows and orphans in the national budget to cater for some of their needs.
The Atipenhene of Techiman Traditional Area, Nana Mohammed Twi-Brempong, who chaired the function, thanked Frank Media for coming to the aid of the less privileged in society urged other corporate organisations to emulate the company.
