Christ Orphanage, in Wegbe, Ghana, was founded by Raymond Attrah in January 2007 to meet the growing and urgent demand to look after orphans and underprivileged children in his local community. His goal was to give them a home, a loving environment and an education - basic needs that all children around the world should take for granted.
The facilities and Raymond's finances have been stretched to breaking point. Some of the children sleep in the school with at least five to a mattress, some are cared for by extended family and some are taken in by the caring in the community.
As it stands, Christ Orphanage is not an environment in which you or I would leave our children for ten minutes.
We are working to build a new site for these children that should be completed by Christmas 2012.
