“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven,” says the good book.
For members of the Multimedia Group, there is no better light than helping, the needy, poor and vulnerable in the society.
It was all joy for the inmates of the Teshie Children’s Home when they tasted the benevolence of the Group and in unison, thanked the Group and glorified God for his faithfulness.
The Multimedia Group donated proceeds from its Thanksgiving service held last week Friday to the Teshie Children’s Home.
The proceeds came from hardworking men and women with gratitude, who, having been kept safe, secure and blessed with another year, decided to thank God for sustaining them and the business.
It was a thanksgiving offering for 2017 and a seed of fruitfulness for 2018 for the employees and management members all of whom attended the church service at the Victory Bible Church.
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, management decided to donate the proceeds, in cash and kind to the Teshie Orphanage.
It was a gesture to bless the underprivileged children of the Teshie Orphanage in Accra, and they undoubtedly appreciated it.
Assorted items worth thousands of cedis and an undisclosed amount of money were donated.
For Chief Human Resource Officer at the Multimedia Group, Nana Mbroh Elegba, the gesture is the first in the series of such activities.
‘For us, purely and simply, it is a direction from God. At Multimedia, our slogan is Christ at Work. So this is part of what we do. We looked around and we thought that even in the centre of the city, there will be less privileged people. A place like Osu is always in the news but you hardly hear of Teshie so we decided to come here’.
On their part, authorities at the Teshie orphanage expressed gratitude to the Multimedia Group, adding that the items donated will enable the managers of the home meet certain critical needs.
Board member, Obed Mensah said, ‘We thank Multimedia very much because these items will take us far. We have a lot of challenges here. With this help, we know our home will be good’.
Usually, organisations like these have some infrastructural needs. From beds, dining halls, toilet and other sanitary facilities, the orphanage is no different.
‘We, therefore, call on other corporate organizations to emulate Multimedia’, Obed Mensah added.
The Teshie Orphanage which was set up in 1995, has catered for many, and currently hosts 22 children.
