COVID-19 AID FOR ALL OUR PROJECTS

With Ghana in lockdown, parents cannot work to provide food for their families and children are missing their two school meals a day.  We are raising funds to provide families with basic supplies to help them through the crisis.

Brightlingsea Academy

Sponsorship*

Just £10 a month pays towards a child’s education, two meals a day, uniform, medical cards for health treatment and social worker visits.

school development

Monthly donation will support the school development, equipment and building works.  This will allow us to enroll more students.

Medical Card

A £20 donation provides a child with a medical card.  A medical card is essential to access medical treatment.  It will reduce the cost of medication.

Emergency Family Fund

Your donations will support families, in extreme poverty, with emergency items such as food, shoes or accommodation.

* If you would like to sponsor a child and receive updates and photos please contact us after completing your recurring monthly donation.
If you do not contact us we will assume you wish to do a general donation and not want to sponsor a specific child.
