Fruit Drop Project

Porridge and Pens’ Fruit Drop

Porridge and Pens’ most recent project is working with the All Nations Charity Home, a registered Non-Government Organisation in Kumasi that’s been open since 2003.

There are currently around 60 children living at the orphanage, all of whom have been abandoned by their families and communities.

Porridge and Pens works with the All Nations Charity Home by dropping off a fresh supply of fruit each week on a Saturday. The delivery includes enough fruit for each of the children to have a piece of fruit every day. Porridge and Pens’ weekly fruit drop is important to the children as it adds some variation and nutrition to diets which currently consist mostly of rice.

Currently we supply fruit grown in Ghana and sold by local traders, such as pineapples, bananas and oranges on a regular basis, and paw paw, mangos and watermelons when they are in season. Fruit such as apples and pears is imported to Ghana, making it very expensive.

Support our Fruit Drop. It costs £25 to give every child in the orphanage fruit for a week.

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.

And that’s exam week completed! Celebrating with a favourite treat of the children - a boiled egg! Might seem normal to us but this is not an every day for our students. Time for a well deserved holiday ... See MoreSee Less

After a week of end of term examinations, the students all enjoyed Pufffruit, a bit like a doughnut, as their afternoon snack. They break for the end of term vacation (school holiday) now. We are sure they will be counting down the days until they are back at school. ... See MoreSee Less
