Our brilliant team in Ghana have been working hard to get food to our children and families who need it the most.
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. ♥️ You can still make a donation here:
We told Gifty and her Mum to come and collect a months supply of basic necessities. They didn’t have any food left. When she arrived she couldn’t stop crying, she was so overwhelmed with joy. It wasn’t right to take a photo of this fragile moment but this would not be possible without your very kind donations. ⭐️
Gifty’s Mum lost her job when schools closed last week. She took home a small amount of cash daily as a school food seller and purchased her family food with the money she made each day. Market prices have increased by 3 times the usual. She was left helpless and scared.
We are so overwhelmed and thankful to everyone who has sent us donations so far towards our Emergency Covid-19 Appeal. Because of your quick action and kindness we have already started to purchase food supplies for our children and their families. This will be a continuous task over the next few months as the situation continues to develop. You can still help us reach our total by making a donation, watching my video or by sharing our page with your friends.
Thank you all so very much for all your kind words as well as your donations. We have read them all. Porridge and Pens is so lucky to have you all ♥️- Jemma
