Hungry Babies Project

Porridge and Pens have had a long standing partnership with the Mother Theresa Orphanage in Kumasi, since 2009.

The Porridge and Pens team have always sent donations of baby clothes and toys to the orphanage and lots of the team have spent time volunteering at the orphanage whilst always wishing we could do more to help.  

We are now able to do a little something to help the many children at the Mother Theresa Orphanage.

Mabel, the receiver of our first Educational Grant, volunteers every Saturday at the orphanage and she has relayed to us there are several babies currently at the orphanage but the sisters do not have enough funds to feed them.  The babies are currently being fed less than half the amount of formula powder required and are therefore hungry and are quickly becoming malnourished.

It costs the charity £60 per month for Mabel to buy enough formula to donate so the babies can be fed the correct amount.

OUR DONATIONS

We use Donation Manager to handle our donations so we pay less in bank charges and receive more of your donations. We can accept donations via Paypal and most credit cards. If you're a UK taxpayer, please Gift Aid your donations  so we receive an extra 25p for every £1 you give us.

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
