The charity project was dubbed the 'Lockdown Food Outreach' and the specific groups of Ghanaians that were targetted are prisoners, the aged, head porters (kayayei's), street kids and the sick.
Sosu further explained that the charity gesture has become excessively crucial in this period of the lockdown exercise that is meant to contain the spread of COVID-19 in Ghana.
Many Ghanaians who live hand-to-mouth were put at a great disadvantage by the lockdown as they have been unable to go out, work and put food on the table.
