In the midst of chaos and uncertainty in this world I am excited and determined to continue Hope for Ghana’s mission as I prepare to leave for Ghana in 2 days. It is a very emotional time for me as I navigate our world’s new reality. Africa may be the safest place to be at this time, though Ghana reported its first 2 cases of coronavirus earlier this week and prepares itself for the inevitable.
Hope for Ghana’s mission of hope, opportunity and life is more important than ever before. In the next few weeks Hope for Ghana will open its second school, Platini’s School of Hope, and will bring the blessing of clean, potable water to several more villages in dire need.
Private donors have ensured a wonderful celebration for widows and orphans. Pittsburgh artist, Zac Rutter, will join me in Ghana to paint murals in Hope for Ghana’s schools reflecting themes of hope and love. And Hope for Ghana will donate to local hospitals basic supplies to help them meet their needs during this global health crisis.
Somehow it seems only natural that I would be in Ghana at this time. My prayers to all around the world for safety and health. Let us continue to take care of each other, here and around the world.
