The third edition of the Class Media Group’s (CMG) Celebrity Orphanage Easter Funfair was held in Accra on Friday with six orphanages participating in games and other activities.
The homes included the Chosen Home from Darkuman, Philadelphia Home at Dansoman, Great James from Chorkor, New Life from Nungua, Save Them Young at Ashaiman and Potters Villages from Dodowa.
They engaged in penalty shoot-outs, mini basketball, musical chairs and other activities.
There was also medical screening and musical performances as well as a presentation to the homes.
Project Manager at CMG, Mrs. Barbara Oduro-Toku, said the event was aimed at fraternizing with inmates of the homes, adding that, “It’s exciting to see lovely kids coming to compete in games, interact and have fun with various personalities on Easter day.”
“Easter is a period families come together to have fun and reunite. We at CMG always love to present such opportunities to children at the orphanages to also experience such moments,” she added.
The group, she said, have invested over GH¢500,000 into the event and called on corporate entities to come on board to put smiles on the faces of orphans.
