I am happy to report that after our April 2013 financial campaign we have had great progress in the construction of the Orphanage facility in Ghana (Africa). A representative/volunteer group travelled from the USA to Ghana in the last part June 2013 to work with local contractors to help complete tasks listed below:

1. The Orphanage building facility consisting of 12 rooms (Dormitories, Offices, Kitchen and store rooms), 13 bathrooms/toilet facilities have all been completely roofed.

2. A total of 28 door frames for the Orphanage building have been provided and fixed

3. A total of 47 window frames for the Orphanage building have also been provided and fixed.

New tasks ahead to be tackled when funds become avaialable include:

a) Providing and fixing Electrical wiring for the building

b) Providing and completing Plumbing works for the building

c) Plastering of the building

Individuals who will be interested in going to Africa next year to help complete tasks listed above should please contact the leaders of Dormaa Childrens Home Inc. Financial contributions to help our activities are welcome. Pictures of work done are attached. Thank you.
