Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In October 2018, I visited the King Jesus Orphanage Tepa, Ghana. The Orphanage is currently home to 73 children, with numbers increasing at the needs of families that cannot support their children. There are mornings they wake up to find abandoned children on their doorstep. It is also a school to 390 children from the Orphanage and surrounding communities. The school has taken on children beyond it's capacity to ensure that they have a fair chance to education.
The Orphanage has two blocks designated as dormitories, separating boys and girls, but once again they are above capacity. Please support us to help raise money for these children to live and sleep in a comfortable environment. At present majority of the children are sleeping on concrete floors, as there are not enough mattresses to go around. Rooms that should accommodate 2 children have up to 7 or more. Poor ventilation, overcrowding and bedbugs often keep the children awake at night. Storage facilities are not available for the children to store their belongings in terms of clothes or books.
Your donation and prayers can make a real difference to the lives of these children. You may never have the chance to meet them, but will make an impact on them that will last forever. Knowing that someone they have never met cares for them and is concerned for their welfare, is enough to encourage anyone. May God bless you bountifully for your donation and prayers.
