We are happy about our new family members

We had the opportunity to welcome and host Emila and her 2 months old baby at our project. Emilia is 18 and homeless who gave birth to her son on the street of Kejetia under unhygienic conditions.
Her conditions during pregnancy resulted in multiple infections and complications during delivery. Both mother and son had to be admitted in hospital for about 2 months before being discharged and have now relocated to our children’s village project. Emilia and son now live with us and both are healthy and safe. The two will undergo further medical screening in the coming weeks to ensure they are very healthy.

We are able to continue to support many such as Emilia and her son because of your continuous interest and support in our project. Many thanks to you all.

Update-Staying Healthy during the Epidemic

The world continues to fight the Coronavirus pandemic. In Ghana, cases of the virus have gone up within the last few weeks with over 12,000 people infected.
The Ghanaian people are doing well in the fight against this disease; schools remain closed while the government tries to develop new measures to reopen them. The restrictions on social gatherings such as attending church, weddings, mosques and funerals have been eased to allow a restricted number of people.

There have not been any cases of Corona in our village until now, and we continue to follow all the existing necessary precautions since the beginning of the pandemic. There are still strict rules for visitors; only essential visits are allowed, such as the company delivering drinking water, or the carpenter repairing a broken roof. Care-givers are required to use their mask and hand sanitiser when running errands in town for the project and regular hands washing is “compulsory” for all persons at the project.

But the kids miss school and their friends. They often ask when they can go to school again, especially the little ones. While we await the directives of the Ghana Health Services and the Ghana health ministry on measures to undertake when school starts, we are using the current time to improve certain facilities at our school and in the school compound. These improvements include replacement of classroom blackboards, repair of broken desks, and the continued maintenance of the toilet system.

The school has recently started a farming project to produce its own food to support the canteen. All staff at the school are actively involved in the farming activities (weeding, planting maize, etc.) and are responsible for upkeep of the land.

We like to thank you all, for the continuous support during the lockdown period; this support makes it possible for us to care for our kids and mothers during these strange times and keep them safe.

Donation Campaign-Marco from Bedburg

Hello People, I would like to start an appeal for donations in kind and money for the LoszuGhana Children’s Village and the school in Adwampong. During my unforgettable Africa motorbike tour in 2019/2020,  I visited this village for about 6 weeks and got an overview of the people and what they are in need or can be useful for them in their daily activities. Many things are missing there that we take for granted. Therefore I would like to ask you to take things that you can give away  to us or alternatively also support the project financially. Thank you very much for your helpfulness and I guarantee that everything will get to the project.

We share a big dream at LoszuGhana and want to expand the existing children’s village. At this village, the children live in safe, loving, family-like structures. This idea and help for kids need to be promoted.

Furthermore, we support the villagers from the surrounding villages of Adunku and Adwampong.

Questions to this relief action I answer gladly under email : spendenaktion@loszuGhana.com

1st Quarter In Focus

Through your enormous contributions and support, we are able to continue to support many women and children to rise above the poverty line. For the first quarter of this year, the project will undergo many improvements and maintenances. 

The school will be getting a complete renovation of its canteen/kitchen facility and a remake of classroom blackboard. Also will be an installation of new shelves for the school storage rooms.   For academic work, extra textbooks based on the new school syllabus will be provided to serve the many kids receiving free basic education at our Save Our School(SOS) project.

Furthermore, similar activities will be carried out at the children’s village. We have planned to improve/rebuild the kids’ playground, providing more space, equipment and playing materials for the children. The kids’ library should also get new reading and textbooks, whiles the family houses and kitchen block will be equipped with heavy-duty shelves. 

Finally, all non-resident kids under our remote support program will be receiving new textbooks, school uniform and support for school lunch at their respective schools. All these are possible because of your continuous interest and support for our project. 

We the children and the staff teams, want to thank every one of you for all the support and all the attention you paid to this cause. God bless you all.

Afehyia Pa.!!
