The Lions Clubs of Tema Oak, East Legon Trassaco and Ho Sentinel, together with the Leo Clubs of Adanu Ho Technical University, Ho Kekeli EPUC and Ho Sentinel supported orphans of Remar Foundation and Madamfo Ghana Foundation in Ho on Saturday, 16 March 2024.

The clubs donated, bags of sachet water, dresses, footwear, cooking oil, bags of rice, cereals, assorted mineral drinks, tubers of yam as well as cooked meals.

The team spent some time at the various facilities and shared words of encouragement with the various inmates.

At Remar Foundation, the team had breakfast with the children at the shelter and shared stories.

Some 17 orphans between the ages of one year and 14 years are under the shelter of Remar Foundation, Ho.

The in-charge of the facility, George Niisai Torgbor thanked the Lions and Leos for the kind gesture. He mentioned that the food items will help alleviate some of the challenges they face in feeding the children three times per day.

According to him, the main challenge of the facility is their inability to pay their Utility bills and appealed to individuals and benevolent organisations to come to their aid.

“Our major needs are our water bills and our light bills, for the light, we normally buy it every week, we’ll be glad if people can come to support us,” Torgbor said.

All 17 children are being enrolled in the Volta Regional Police Training School, Basic School.

At Madamfo Ghana Foundation also in Ho, the team made donations of the same items. They spent hours with the children sharing words of motivation amidst singing and dancing.

The team also had lunch with the children and promised to support them in other areas.

The room Director at Madamfo, Happy Dzamesiafun thanked the Lions and Leos for making time and spending time with them. She said their doors are opened for further support for the children.

More than the 20 children in the shelter are victims of child trafficking, child labour, rape and child marriage who have been rescued by the foundation.

The children are also placed in the various basic schools within the municipality.

According to Happy, some past inmates of the facility are currently pursuing their tertiary education in various universities across the country and she hopes that the current inmates are also given similar support.

Lion Edem Ocloo-Anipah, the Club administrator of Tema Oak Lions Club and Guiding Lion to East Legon Lions Club, who led the team said the idea to support the orphans is in line with the mission of Lions International that is aimed at supporting the Blind and the Underprivileged. Lions International is the world’s largest service organization that has over 1.4 million members all across the globe.

The team ended the day’s tour at the Ho Technical University’s Clinic where they donated waste bins to the facility.

Robert Amenyo, the Physician Assistant who received the items on behalf of the clinic thanked the Lions and Leos and promised to use the items for their intended purposes.
