Misthy Cee Children's Support Centre, Ghana

Progress with both building and child care. A busy year ahead!

The past couple of months have been busy times at the Centre: the impressive pillars for the polytank have now been built (see photo), and arrangements will soon be made for the polytank to be delivered and installed; this will ensure that clean drinking water is always available for the children, as the mains water supply remains intermittent.

We are delighted that a new carer, Agartha, who has formal childcare qualifications, has agreed to work at the Centre, initially on a trial basis.

In addition, Misthy has been busy finding a builder and his team to build the kitchen and dining room which will serve both the Centre and the Misthy Cee Educational Complex (MCEC) school. Funds have now been sent for work to start on the foundations of the building, and we hope to share further details and some photos as the work progresses.

Misthy also received some money so he could buy food and drinks for the children and adults at the Centre to have a party at Christmas time, and the photo shows a number of the children dancing and having fun. 

Although most reports from the Centre are extremely encouraging, the fact remains that the children have some very basic needs that are not being fully met. Misthy has identified mosquito nets, mattresses, sheets and pillows as particularly pressing requirements, and any financial help that our supporters worldwide can give would be hugely appreciated.
