A Smile for December
This initiative was created to give hope to youths and children living in charity homes. It was also conceived to search within the society, for genuine benevolent humanitarians who need help and support in catering for the well being of youths and children in their care. Selection of the charity homes that benefit from this project is based on the extent of limited resources, funding and care for the young people in the home. Every last quarter of the year, we visit a couple of homes to find out their needs and assess their living condition. The home in desperate need of help for that period, becomes the home we support.
Beneficiaries of this project are Hearts of Gold Children’s Hospice, Arrows of GOD orphanage, Precious Pearls Orphanage, Citadel of Grace Home and So-said Charity Home for the destitute on the street and vulnerable in society. Over six hundred lives have been impacted through this initiative as we have provided food, educational funding, installation of borehole water and creative training for the beneficiaries of the homes.
Some of our outstanding contributions have been to So-said Charity home where we installed borehole water for almost two hundred mentally ill women and their children living in that home. Before our intervention in 2012, the home was dilapidated and unhealthy to live in. A year after the installation, the home has been transformed and become more habitable.
