Misthy Cee Children's Support Centre, Ghana

October 2012 Update

Repairs to the building go ahead
Repairs to the building go ahead

Building work is continuing on the kitchen and dining hall, and the damage caused by the storm earlier in the year has been repaired (see photo).

We were disappointed to learn that Madame Agartha, who had been unwell for a couple of months and had not been able to look after the children at the Centre, has now decided that she will not be returning to work there.

Misthy recently attended a 5-day workshop on ‘Managing an Orphanage’, organised by the Department of Social Welfare in Ghana, and will be looking to make the necessary staff appointments as soon as possible.

We are delighted that David and Tom, 2 volunteers from the UK, will be visiting the Centre for the month of November, and we are sure that they will help the project to develop for the benefit of the children. We hope that, in particular, they can review the current state of the accommodation block at the Centre and help to make improvements to the facilities.

Thank you for your interest and support, and we look forward to sharing more news about the project soon.
