Orca Deco Ghana donated 7,000 boxes of food items to
the people of Ghana and distributed them through the Rebecca Foundation. This
humble donation was made to support the Foundation in making life better for
the poor and underprivileged in Ghana. The donation was used as a catalyst for a much larger campaign and drive to do
good. Orca and The First Lady challenged other retailers to donate what they
can toward helping those in need during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The timing could not have been more opportune with the #Challenge trend that

donate what they can in aid of those in need. The First Lady announced the 7,000 Boxes Challenge which we started,

The 7,000 Boxes Challenge initiative evoked a sense of positivity and hope during the time of difficulty.
