Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Manger Desmond Spain, speaking

As part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Manger at Orange Telecom Sierra Leone, Desmond Spain, has disclosed that they were going to provide food to the homeless and street beggars during the Month of Ramadan.

He made the disclosure last Thursday, May 2nd at the Calaba Town Bus Stop, East of Freetown, during the launch of the 2019 Ramadan promotion.

Each year and during the Holy Month of Ramadan, Orange Telecom, honours their CSR through the provision of food and none food items to mosques and Muslim groups across the country.

He said this year; the company will not only give food to Muslims but also to the homeless and street beggars in Freetown and district headquarter towns.

Orange Money Strategic Marking Director, Abibatu Iyabo Baxter, said the company has always been working to satisfy their customers, hence they have extended their network coverage and reduced product prizes including data, and others.

She explained that ten Orange subscribers will win a weekly food supply in the daily draw, whilst twenty people would win one month food supply weekly and five people to win one year food supply including five million Leones cash each at the end the promotion.

She said all their customers needed to do is to buy a re-charge card or do Orange Money transaction to qualify for the promotion, adding that the draw will be stream live on the Sierra Leone Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC), Star Television and Freetown Television every Saturday.

She recalled that Orange Telecom has over the years prioritised  children’s issues in the exercise of their Corporate Social Responsibility and in 2015 they adopted fifty Ebola affected orphans who are currently been housed at the SOS Children Villages in Freetown, Bo and Makeni.
