Miss Ghana 2013 Giuseppina Nana Akua Baafi has donated items worth thousands of Ghana Cedis to the Countryside Orphanage, located at Bawjease in the Central Region.
Miss Baafi, who was accompanied on the trip by her 2nd Runner Up Crystal Selorm Amudzi, and some officials from the Miss Ghana office, donated toiletries, confectionaries, candies, and clothes among other items to the institution.
The reigning queen was celebrating her 23rd birthday, and used the occasion to reach out to the orphans.
The presentation ceremony had in attendance both young and old inmates of the orphanage, some of who had very touching life stories to tell.
“You all here were born to be great,” Baafi told them. “I have no doubt you will succeed in life, just as I have been told stories of how some of you have even gone on to achieve excellence in your various educational institutions.
“This is just the beginning; there are far greater accomplishments ahead of you, and I know you will grow to become responsible citizens of this nation.”
Her kind words were re-echoed by Miss Amudzi who tasked them to be of good behaviour at all times.
A gesture well appreciated by authorities of the Orphanage, it forms part of the broader vision of the central Beauty With A Purpose theme of the Miss Ghana Foundation, the charity arm of the pageant.
Lara Mart, Kwatsons, Multi-pac, Frankies, Multi-Pro, Tip Top, Yoks Investments, Moda Italia, Drake Impex Ltd and Toptech Driving Institute supported the donation.
