This project will provide a Christmas meal and gift to 500 rural community children in southeastern Ghana. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the usual bright, cheery Christmas gatherings aren't possible, so HOCAP will instead be delivering some joy through boxed meals to each of the children.
In a normal year, HOCAP always organizes a Christmas celebration for the local community children from rural areas and deprived communities, along with orphans and children living on the street. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional large gatherings aren't possible. To ensure safety and compliance with local regulations, HOCAP has decided to redesign its usual program while still bringing joy to the children during the Christmas season.
Because this year's celebration is more of a challenge, HOCAP plans to deliver individual boxes to each child. To avoid gathering in a crowd, staff members will deliver a special Christmas box to each child, which they can take home to enjoy with their families. Each box will contain a gift and a Christmas meal to bring some extra joy to these disadvantaged children during such difficult times.
The project will continue the ongoing goals of HOCAP to address the education, health care, and economic needs of rural Ghanaian communities ranging in size from 200 - 1,000 people.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Help Nyitawuta Village Achieve Self-Sufficiency. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
