Say YES to Orphans in Distress
When an orphanage is forced to say “no” to its hungry, thirsty
children the picture is bleak. Fortunately for an orphanage in Kumasi,
Ghana, they knew where to find a ray of sunshine.
Cherubs Orphanage was desperate when they turned to Pastor E.Y. Ghansah. Pastor Ghansah has worked
with the International Children’s Fund for decades, and has relied on ICF’s assistance to establish over 35 churches and bring Christian
faith to thousands around the region. Pastor Ghansah contacted ICF as soon as he learned about the plight of this orphanage. As they have so many times
before, our volunteer staff responded very quickly to meet the most pressing needs:
Beyond aid to solutions
When the resourceful volunteers at ICF got to work, things started
to happen. The team ordered a shipping container and packed it with tons of food, clothing, farm
implements and other relief supplies for Kumasi. Other donors helped with cash contributions, which allowed Pastor
Ghansah to move forward on a building plan, a water well and farming projects for the orphanage.
Today, Cherubs Orphanage is a center of support instead of a location in distress. Cherubs meets its food
needs from the produce of its own successful farm. Healthy chickens now peck around the yard, where water is a
source of cleanliness and refreshment rather than disease.
Will optimism be rewarded?
Nations like Ghana are making great progress, yet they still struggle with a lack of resources to care for infants and
children. Pastor Ghansah is doing everything he can, looking forward to the day when fresh financial resources arrive.
Will you help us encourage him to perform good works in Jesus’ name? Help now
with a tax-deductible donation to the International Children’s Fund.
