In 2013, after 10 years in Eastern Europe, we began working in West Africa (Ghana and Sierra Leone). Despite the needs being different, the fundamentals were the same. Moreover, many of the general donations we receive ideally fitted the needs in that region, school books for example.
Thankfully, in West Africa decisions on projects are community based. Hence our rate of development has been rapid. Essential services such as Eye clinics, schools, hospitals have all been built, extended or modernised. In March 2022 we opened a home for abandoned children called The Xorladi Project. The second strand to our bow is the distribution of goods to schools, hospitals, and community groups. Numerous school books, hundreds of sewing machines, endless wheelchairs, incubators, to name but a few have been sent to West Africa. Most of these items, having outlived their life here in Ireland find a new lease of life helping change people’s situations for the better.
