A YOUTH group that operates under the umbrella name iFocus GH has put smiles on the faces of street children at Sekondi European Town in the Western Region.
A total of over 750 children were fed at a party targeted initially at 400 children to show love and care to the under-privileged in society.
Prophet Zag Bonney, a co-founder and vice president of the group, described the attendance as massive and “beyond expectation.”
“Since it’s a youth group, we do a survey and what we can afford we move and go to the place and work,” he explained.
“It was a Boxing Day and we felt it was important to feed the less privilege on the streets ofSekond European Town.”
Throwing more lights on what the iFocus GH represents, he said, “It’s an organisation that has the ‘eyes focused’ on making our communities better places to live in.”
Side attractions of the exercise included face painting and dancing competition.
