Mah di's Orphanage needs your help

Summary

Madhis Orphanage is a humble house to 40 very little children and some teenagers. The Orphanage was barely sustaining itself, it lacked beds, mosquito nets, access to clean water and nutritious feeding, our donors have started to change all of the above, impacting the future of so many children under five years (an age critical for the development of mind and body), but its still in extreme need and dependency. Now you can finish the job forever, creating a haven for children of the region.

Challenge

Kumba is the biggest city in the South-West Region of Cameroon, it concentrates a large population attracted by the opportunities it hosts, but many of them end up living under poor economic conditions. Vulnerable young mothers find themselves pushed to abandon their children as they are born and most of them live as street children. Luckily other mothers like Mah Diana feel compelled to take care of those children in their own houses.

Solution

With the money raised we will be providing the orphanage with basic needs such as feeding and medicine, while drawing up a clear plan to independence based on diversified income generating activities and community involvement. If enough resources arrive the whole infrastructure will be improved with a playground, better equipped bathrooms and beds. This will also cover integration grants for the older orphans, to self-employ themselves through business entrepreneurship as they reach adulthood.

Long-Term Impact

Investing in children under 5 has a great potential impact; investing a small sum in children at this early stage has consequences on their performance for all their lives. By improving their feeding, their hygiene, their comfort, and their health they will be more intelligent, healthier, and stronger as adults. They will get better jobs, achieve higher levels of education and they will be closer to realizing their goals. They just need you to care for them now.
