The Ark Foundation, Ghana is launching an appeal to support 80 year old Dari and her 13 year old granddaughter in the Upper West Region. Dari, who suffers from leprosy has very little support for her food and everyday needs. She lives at the outskirts of her village in a hut that is not likely to survive a downpour. The Ark wishes to garner support from people like you who care to give her a decent hut, daily food and a stipend for her health needs.
Dari suffers from leprosy and has been abandoned by her family. This is in violation of the Maputo Protocol Article 1(G ) which states "harmful practices and behaviour, which negatively affect the fundamental rights of women and girls, such as their right to life, health, dignity, education and physical integrity".
Will raise funds to: 1. Provide a decent accommodation 2. Daily feeding 3. The services of a Caregiver 4. Transportation to and from the hospital 5. Medical expenses 6. Educational support for her granddaughter 7. Business support
1. Permanent home 2. Improved quality of life 3. Sustainable source of income 4. Secure future for granddaughter
