Danifori Logistics, a company which deals in the sale of brand new and slightly used Tippers, Tractor Units, Cargo Trucks, Bulk and Semi-Trailers, has donated items to the Eye of The Lord Orphanage located at Nsawam-Accra.
The donation event is part of activities earmarked to celebrate the birthday of the Managing Director, Daniel Ofori.
Items worth GH¢12,500 donated to the orphanage include buckets, washing bowls, bags of rice, gallons of cooking oil, boxes of tomatoes, drinking cups, boxes of liquid soaps and stacks of toilet rolls. Others are bags of water, assorted drinks and a birthday cake amongst others.
Daniel Ofori Okyere, Managing Director, Danifori Logistics, said being alive is a privilege from God, a reason to show appreciation and giving back to orphans and the less-privileged in society is one of the ways of doing.
“This is not the first time we are giving back to society, at Danifori we always give back to the people living around the communities in which we operate, but today is exceptional because it is my birthday and I want to celebrate it with this wonderful people here,” he said.
With regards to the choice of Eye of The Lord orphanage from the lot, Mr. Ofori said, searching online they came across this orphanage which was established by a visually impaired man. “The mere fact that the owner himself is a physically challenged person who needs help but is rather helping others influenced our decision to select them out of the lot,”he said.
The visually impaired proprietor of Eye of The Lord orphanage, Samuel Kwarpong Darko, expressed his profound gratitude to Danifori Logistics for the aid, which he said, will help in ensuring the children have a comfortable life at the orphanage home.
He further called on other corporate organisations and well to do individuals to come to their aid in providing the needed infrastructural needs to raise the orphanage to a higher standard.
“Our current population is 100 but we only have a six unit classroom block, a computer lab, and a dormitory and library, both of which are under construction. These children will be highly grateful and will feel safer if the public come to our help in terms of our infrastructure needs,” he said.
