REPORT FROM FATHER'S HOUSE ORPHANAGE AND MAH DI'S

  1. Father’s House Orphanage

This orphanage continued to function during the last three months despite encountering a lot of challenges caused by the Anglophone crisis, as most of their partners have deserted them.  Life has not been very easy or stable for the kids but amidst the difficulties, they have been able to pull through by setting up income generating activities and receiving monthly donations from you. The kids have not been able to eat three times a day like before; they are able to eat twice due to limited resources.

The orphanage is involved in selling fresh fish to make ends meet. In December 2019, four cartoons of fish was bought at $30 and a profit of $110 was made. According to the Founder, the profit generated was used to buy food and clothes for the children during the festive period, and part for medication. The orphanage now rears pigs. So far, there are six pigs in the fence, and their plan is to sell after a certain period of time. There is also a small farm, which they cultivate and use the yield for home consumption. In December 2019, yams were harvested from the farm.

Thanks to your donation, four children have been sent to go to secondary school in the Littoral Region, where schools are functional. Those still in the orphanage have not had the opportunity to go to school since schools are not functioning in Muyuka.

Another major problem the orphanage encountered during the past months was the fact that 5 children were critically sick, and one operated upon. This made the Founder to spend more money than planned, but they are all healthy now.

Despite the challenges, Mrs Commy, the Founder of the Orphanage is thankful to God for keeping them alive, and her gratitude equally goes to you, the donors, for not forsaking them at a time like this.

Reach Out also directed a humanitarian partner, the Danish Refugee Council, to work with the Orphanage, and they made donations of some basic relief items.

 

2. A letter from Mah Di’s Orphanage

Dear donors we thank you so much for your donations that sustained us throughout 2019, and early 2020. We carried out the following activities during this period:

Education: the children successfully made it through the first term of the 2019/2020 academic year thanks to your financial, material and moral support.

Foodstuff: the Orphanage had enough for the children to eat, and we were also able to support other underprivileged people in our community.

Socialization & Outdoor Activities: the children celebrated the festive season in a grand style; they were engaged in preparing traditional dishes and visiting other children within the neighborhood. The children also visited the Kumba Amusement Park, as well as joint other orphanages under the canopy of the Meme Association of Orphanages to celebrate the end-of-year feast.

Visit to the Orphange: visitors came from within and out of Kumba with foodstuff like rice, beans, fish plantains and groundnut which they donated to the orphanage

Farming: the center successfully planted and harvested some food crops like cassava, plantain, yams and vegetables for consumption

Conclusion: we are so very thankful to the donors, who in one way or the other contributed to the upkeep of this orphanage.  God bless you abundantly
