On the 21st November 2016, Charlie Fisher (NMSI’s ICT Manager) donated the first consignment of educational books, clothes and games to the children of Old Fadama, which had been collected
by his wife Hilary.
The district of Agbogbloshi, Accra, is one of the most deprived areas in Ghana and West Africa. It is located adjacent to an extremely polluted wet land and life is not easy for the people of this district. NMSI Ghana friend, Sister Eileen (Franciscan Missionaries) who is a retired teacher, works in the district teaching children, who due to economic circumstances do not get a chance to basic education.
Sister Eileen also helps a local missionary (Missionaries of Charity) who recently built a school and a health clinic in the area. NMSI thought on how they could best help Sister Eileen and the collection for the school was started.
It is hoped that this is the first of many donations for Sister Eileen to then pass onto the Children of Old Fadama, so for anyone based in the UK who would like to make a collection of school books, clothes or games, please contact Caroline Young on firstname.lastname@example.org and send all donations to the NMSI office in Poole (5 Winchester Place, North Street, Poole, Dorset, BH15 1NX).
Thank you for your continued support.
