One of our members Esi is travelling to Ghana with her daughters at the end of September to visit family and while she is out there she will be meeting with a charity called Ghana Twins Foundation.
Please see email from Esi below and if you have any donations you would like to make, she will be at Twins Plus on Tuesday, or alternatively you can contact Esi direct on her email address to arrange delivery/collection – she will be available until 24th September, when the shipments will be leaving our shores.
While I am out there I will be meeting with a charity called Ghana Twins Foundation (www.ghanatwinsfoundation.com), as well as visiting two orphanages that my grandma plays an active role in.
I plan on shipping out three+ large boxes which I am hoping to fill with clothes, shoes, toys, games, educational materials, stationery, dry food etc.
The children in the orphanages range from newborn to young adults. Many families who simply cannot afford to feed or clothe their children rely heavily on these wonderful organisations for much needed support. The twins foundation aim to help mothers of twins who are struggling. Many are on the streets and GTF assists in making sure these children (and mothers) receive a roof and access to education.
If anyone wishes to make a monetary donation that would also be brilliant. Boxes cost between £50-80 to ship, so all donations would aide the cause and any left be split equally between the charities.
It would be wonderful if twins club members would donate anything they can.
If you would like to donate anything and are unable to bring it along on Tuesday, please contact Esi by email: email@example.com
