MTN Ghana Foundation, the Corporate Social Investment wing of MTN Ghana has partnered with FreeLunchGH to organize Christmas parties for about a 1,000 children.

The beneficiaries of the parties are children from Korle Gonno Community Library in Korle Gonno and Anoff MA Community School, near Nsawam.  The parties were held on 22nd and 23rd December 2016 respectively.

The Christmas parties provided MTN Ghana Foundation the unique opportunity to engage directly with the children while fulfilling two of its three focus areas, which are, education and health.

Speaking at the Christmas party at Anoff MA Community School, the Executive Secretary of the MTN Ghana Foundation, Robert Kuzoe said” it’s exciting to  use the Christmas occasion to reach out to the children in an informal way and to celebrate this special season with them.

He said, “they are the future of Ghana and we always have to make room for them in our end of year activities”.

This is the second time the MTN Ghana Foundation is partnering FreeLunchGH. In 2015, MTN worked with the organization to entertain and feed children from two communities.

Since the inception of the MTN Foundation in 2007, Christmas parties have been held annually for children in selected communities in Ghana. In addition, the Foundation also presents hampers to babies born on Christmas day. On the 26th of December, 2016 MTN Foundation presented 200 babies with gifts in 11 hospitals across the country bringing the total number of hampers given out to 1000 in 5 years.

MTN Ghana Foundation has been implementing sustainable community investment initiatives since its inception in 2007.
