Local NGO Identifies with 161 ‘Destitute Children’


Over 161 destitute kids in Ganta and its’ environs are benefiting from the good gesture of Canadian charitable organization “Hope for the Nations” based in Ganta City, Nimba County.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer in Nimba on February 18, one of managers of Hope for the Nations, Sam Ta Kruah said the institution is presently catering to over 161 destitute children, including 97 orphans and over 70 less fortunate children.

He said the over 161 children are going to school at the expense of the institution, as well as providing food and medical aid.

He explained that Hope also is involved in children recovery, where nutritional food items are provided to malnourished children and foster parents.

“Last year we built houses for some foster parents to enable them to adequately cater to the orphanage or less fortunate children in their care,” he added.

“We also provide business income support to empower these foster parents,” he said.

The Hope for the Nation also runs a camp, where these children are taken for caring, but, owing to the health crisis, the home is not running presently, so what they are doing is providing their needs to their foster parents and train the parents how to care for them.

Last year, Hope paid tuition to all the students attending the Hope Academy High School in Ganta.
