2020 with all its uncertainty and profound challenges has given us a new meaning of thanksgiving. Incredibly in these difficult days we have seen an outpouring of charity and giving in unprecedented ways.
A global pandemic and social unrest has brought a hunger for hope, a hunger for light in the midst of darkness. I am grateful that Hope for Ghana’s mission has continued on course, bringing hope and opportunity to children and families in Ghana during these most uncertain times.
Hope for Ghana’s Ground Operations Assistant, Senyo, has orchestrated our Coronavirus Crisis Response as Hope for Ghana has donated masks, sanitizers, gloves, washing stations and soap to over 3000 people and 10 hospitals and health centers.
Senyo has allowed Hope for Ghana to provide clean, potable water to 6 more villages in dire need. He is now on his first “business trip,” bringing Hope for Ghana’s life saving mission to 8 more villages in a region never before visited by us, the Brong Ahafo Region. I spoke to Senyo last night as he described visiting remote villages in Africa’s bush, clearly touched by the overwhelming struggles of these villagers in such desperate need.
The story emerging in Ghana is a powerful and beautiful story of hope. It is the story of thanksgiving. I remain eternally grateful to the wonderful donors who share in Hope for Ghana’s mission. You are bringing life to some of the most remote villages on this earth and showing what philanthropy is all about.
I pray that the coming months here and around the world are filled with light and peace, and that you and your family have a joyous Thanksgiving.
