Abaana is a charity caring for some of the poorest children in Africa. Over the past 20 years Abaana has built 13 schools providing education for 4000 children and sponsorship for over 1,650. The charity also runs 5 homes for street children and a weekly street outreach programme.

Charity Registration No. Northern Ireland


We have reached the target thanks to some donations made directly to Abaana!!

Following the sad and tragic news in January 2010, that Assunta, Fabrice, Claire and Pierre had passed away, and then the following year the sad news that Assunta's brother Tony had passed away, I am delighted to inform everyone who kindly donated, that The Comard Mondello Nursery has now been built in Uganda, in their memory.

This is a fantastic tribute to a beautiful and loving family who were loved by many and are still missed daily.

We are now raising £1500 for desks and chairs for the children so that they can enjoy The Comard Mondello Nursery.

This project has meant a lot to me and I have been overwhelmed by the support, generosity and kindness of those who also knew and loved the family.

It is a great tribute to Assunta, Fabrice, Pierre, Claire and Tony, and will keep their memory alive.

Very many thanks.

Lots of love, Helen xxxxx
