HATW visitors Geoff B and Dieu Donne K visited Misthy Cee in recent weeks and we await their report. Both work actively with our partner organisation ABOPHA in Benin and this was an opportunity for them to see another partner at work, and meet Mary a local lady who has been helping Misthy to develop the centre.
Sadly, in recent days Angelina, the original motherly children's carer who I first met in 2005, died after a long illness. Her husband 'Papa' continues dedicatedly to look after the children day by day. We send him, and the family which is Misthy Cee, our condolences at this difficult time.
Joanne Y will be going out as a HATW volunteer in the next few weeks. She works normally as a story teller in primary schools in Wales and is looking forward to trying to help the school children in Ghana. This will be an exciting adventure for her!
Various other volunteers are preparing to help out later in the year, both with child care and constructing new and much-needed kitchen and dining facilities for both school and residential unit.
