New Community Clinic, Liberia

Health Clinic in Liberia
  

Pastor Emmanuel Gyamfi has been a long time partner with International Children's Fund.  One of the most critical issues that he is addressing in his community outside Monrovia, Liberia is the need for medical care.

 

During the month of March, his small clinic served more than 3,800 patients.  Of these, more than 200 were suffering from Malaria.  Thankfully, that is half of the amount that were treated last year at this time.  One of the reasons may be that we were able to send a shipment of mosquito nets and each person that comes to the clinic receives this life-saving tool!  Also note that the clinic accepts payments from those that are able but turns no one away that needs medical care.

 

As you read some time ago, the demand for medical services has exceeded the capacity of their small facility.  Through the assistance of supporters like you, ICF has provided funding to expand this clinic to meet the current and future needs of the community.

 

Construction of the additional facility is progressing very well.  Above is a recent photo that was taken on our visit in February.  The expanded facility, however, will require additional medical  equipment and supplies.  Your continued support will facilitate our ability to meet this critical need.


Cherubs Orphanage in Ghana


ICF responds to an orphanage's cry for hope. Cherubs Orphanage called on Pastor Ghansah and shared with him the issues they faced as renters of the building they lived in...After the construction of a water well and updates on the building, the landlord raised the rent and then told the administration that they were going to be evicted because he wanted to use the building as a hotel. That meant that the children at Cherubs Orphanage would be homeless.

Being homeless as a child in Ghana does not allow for many options. Many children are forced into prostitution or slavery. Many turn to drugs and are victims of crime. It is a terrible situation to be in. Pastor Ghansah called ICF and shared with us about what was going on. Could we help? The answer was simple - we had to help. Because of the support of our donors, the children at the orphanage now have a safe place to live, food to eat and an education that provides hope for their future.

The infant you see on our home page photo is at the orphanage because her unwed Mother died during childbirth. Her family did not want anything to do with the child because of the Mother's actions and was left on her own. Cherubs Orphanage stepped up and has taken responsibility of the child and named her "Blessed" as she is truly a blessing and are giving her all of the love and support she so desperately needed. Friends, this couldn't have happened without you! Please continue to pray about helping children like little "Blessing" as she is one of many children that have been left to fend for themselves.
