 Maame Akua Austin, host of Asempa FM mid morning show, ‘Abrabo’, a social and entertainment magazine show, on Wednesday donated food items to children at the Save Them Young Mission Inc orphanage located near the Ashaiman roundabout.
The donation was sponsored by her Mama Akua Foundation in collaboration with Obaapa Akua Fan Club from Kingdom Radio in Germany.
Items donated included  sacks of rice, liquid soaps, tooth paste and brush, oil, cartons of soft drinks and biscuits among other items worth GH¢800.
Maame Akua, at a short presentation ceremony at the home on Wednesday, encouraged other philanthropists to support the underprivileged children at the home.
“Maame Akua Foundation and Obaapa Akua Fan Club from Kingdom Radio’s aim here was to put a smile on the faces of kids at Save Them Young. I will want to use this opportunity to encourage anybody who sees this out there to also support the children here,” she told NEWS-ONE.
Maame has been on radio for the past 13 years. She spent eight years on Hot FM in the UK before joining the Multimedia Group five years ago.
She was previously on Adom FM but moved to Asempa FM where she now hosts ‘Abrabo’, a social and entertainment magazine show, which airs Mondays to Thursdays from 10 am to 12:30pm.  
She interviews personalities and gives titbits on health issues as well as major stories making the headlines and finding solutions to problems affecting people.
Save Them Young Mission Inc., has been in existence for the last 16 year. It started with three children but it currently has 72 children, with the youngest being a few months old. Majority of the children at the home are below the ages of 5 years.
Over the years, a number of them had grown and gone back.  
Founder of the home, Revered Dr. Paulina Opoku Amoabeng, said it wasn’t easy taking care of the children but they were managing to take good care of the children as they also instilled in the children good Christian doctrines.
She said schooling was one of their major problems. Some of the children always walked by the main road to school which, she said, wasn’t safe.
They however managed to establish a kindergarten in the home to take care of the younger kids so that the elderly ones continue to school outside the home. She called on philanthropists to help the home with a vehicle to support the children’s movement to school. She also mentioned that the home had issues with water supply.
