Kumasi’s favourite and most listened to radio station, Nhyira 104.5 FM, has disbursed a total of GHS113, 756 to 22 orphanages in the Ashanti Region last year.

In all, 1, 238 inmates benefited from the amount raised in the 2018 season of the station’s annual charity, known as Nhyira Abodoo, a Christmas event for the vulnerable in society.

It represents a 13 per cent increase on the GHS100,000 raised and disbursed to the same number of homes in 2017.

Asokore-Mampong-based SOS Children Village followed closely with GHS11,200.00.

Also, GHS1,000 was donated to Nyame Na Aye Orphanage Home.

Listeners and other philanthropic individuals, in Ghana and abroad, as well as institutions, contributed the cash and items.
