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.

Our brilliant team in Ghana have been working hard to get food to our children and families who need it the most.

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
