My dear brothers and sisters imagine a life of destitution, object poverty, unsanitary living conditions, daily hardships and struggles, hunger, loss of hope and guidance, and the list goes on. A life which young kids and young adults will go through sleep and wake cycles only concerned about where their next meal will come from. Families who are insecure about not having proper shelter and food rarely thrive in any society or environment. Please help me give these families a place they can call home. This will not only help restructure their lives, but it will give them a sense of purpose and goal in life.
The picture displays an ongoing project to construct 4 apartment flats for these families. They currently live in a small apartment (shown in photo below) in a village called Kumasi in Ghana without water supply, cooling, bathroom, kitchen, furniture, etc. They must walk quite a distance every day to buy water and to use public restrooms. Their cooking is done in an open area outside their home. There are a total of four families consisting of mothers and 19 kids all living in one apartment. These kids come from different backgrounds; some who are orphans and others whose fathers have abandoned them and neglected their duties towards them. They slept on bare concrete floor for years until recently when a donor gave them floor mats to sleep on. They all live in a 3-room apartment (not 3 bedrooms, rather there are a total of 3 rooms in their entire apartment). They are unstable financially, mentally, and socially. No one deserves to live in these circumstances.
There are many other families living in these conditions. We may not be able or rather unwilling to help the entire world with people in destitution, however helping even one person is a great start and a sign of some decency left in us. These families are in great desperation and need to move from this apartment they call home to somewhere safe, where they can live comfortably with the necessities of life such as clothing, food, water, education, etc. Consider your donation today an investment in our future generation. The return for this type of investment is priceless. I implore you all to show compassion and empathy by donating generously and sharing this campaign widely to help these vulnerable families who are also at a brink of eviction. Let us give from that which Allah (God) has blessed us with for we do not know what the future holds for us. Give generously and Allah (God) will bless it and multiply if for you as it befits His majesty. He is the most generous and His generosity has no boundaries or limits. Invest in their future and your future today.
All it will take is for 120 individuals to donate a $100.00 each and the suffering and hopelessness for these mothers and their children will be over. Imagine the joy, happiness, and hope you will bring to the faces of these mothers and their children and the instant gratification you will feel knowing that you just made a difference in someone's livelihood. The joy and reward of giving to a cause and making a difference in someone's life is priceless. Show gratitude for what you have been blessed with by donating generously to those who are less fortunate.
