Joy in Giving Foundation, an initiative of renowned broadcast journalist, Joyce Midley, has donated assorted items and cash as well as feting children of the Volta Home Orphanage at Vedeme in the Volta Region.
This is not the first time Joyce Midley is providing such a gesture to the Volta Home Orphanage. In 2015 and 2016, Joyce Midley put together her Easter and Christmas packages and donated them to this orphanage and two others in the country. The aim was to put a smile on the faces of these children in society.
This year, Joyce Midley is embarking on a special project with selected orphanages in the country. This involves physically visiting, feting and donating food items to some children’s homes across the country.
The foundation is kick starting the project with the Volta Home Orphanage in Vedeme in the Volta Region. “This follows a request from the orphanage that some of the children aspire to pursue a career in broadcasting and therefore would request my mentorship, guidance, advice and motivation”, she told 3news.com.
About 60 children of the Volta Home Orphanage are being feted and are expected to benefit from cash donations as well as well as groceries such as rice, tin fish, milk, juice, diapers, educational materials, some dresses Joyce Midley wore for her news presentations, 10 yards of cloth, biscuits among others.
