Stephanie Karikari, Miss Ghana 2010 winner has treated orphans from the Teshie Orphanage to a day’s movie-watching experience at the Silverbird Cinema at the Accra Mall.

Some 30 children and their supervisors, at the invitation of the reigning beauty queen savoured every moment of the three-hour session whilst reveling in the great Hollywood studio-produced 3D film, Narnia. From the taking of photo shots with Stephanie to feeding on some delicious pop corns and drinks, the orphans, most of whom were visiting the Cinema for the first time, relished the aura that came with spending quality time with Miss Ghana 2010.

Stephanie in turn, made her guests feel much at home by sharing jokes with them, cuddling the very young ones and serving them with some of the many freebies available for grabs. Later, she donated products from Ghandour Cosmetics to the Orphanage and said: “society loves and cares for you.

Forever, I will remain a true friend of the Orphanage. Be good boys and girls and never let the fact that you are orphans tear you down”. Officials of the Silverbird Cinema led by the Acting General Manager Victoria Owusu said her outfit was more than pleased to have hosted the orphans, adding that as an entity, this was one of the ways of contributing their quota to society.

Representatives of the Orphanage also thanked Stephanie and the management of Silverbird for their gesture, promising to pass on the messages of hope and encouragement given them, to the other inmates of the Orphanage. The Teshie Orphanage was started in July 1995, with 22 children, 13 boys and 9 girls by an indigene of the area Mrs. Janet Anyeley Parker.

It seeks to among other things provide food and clothes for the poor and needy children, establish pre-schooling, child nutrition centers, to help the poor, aged and the disabled financially and in kind, to provide social services for needy teenage mothers and to organize for them vocational training, to improve women’s social status and enhance their involvement in the development process, to run educational, health care clinics and awareness-raising programmes, relating to women and children, to establish small productive projects for women and provide guidance on household economy and to protect and improve the environment.

The support from Stephanie is one of several others they receive all year round.
