Campaign Story

Saint Jerome Catholic Outreach Orphanages Foundation and Street Children Ministry Fundraising For The Unforgotten Orphans and Self-Carers kids Voice Of West Africa is Calling!

I wanted to appeal with you, to ask how you can help us in in our situation. Our catholic Church mission and Orphanages Foundation in Ghana fled to Ghana many years ago from the civil war in Liberia. We have set up our orphanage within a refuge camp but we wait for the times to be ready to return to Liberia, the home land of our kids and members. Especially as the Ghana government breaking down the refugees camp, where we built our Center. Over the years we have been crying but no Savior yet!

Our daily life is a continuous struggle to feed, protect and educate the disadvantaged children under our care and many street children than turn to us for help.

The situation is precarious and providing this children a normal upbringing is not an easy task, fighting local corruption, crime, and general lack of resources. All of our funding comes from donations, from many countries in the world, and without this lifeline we’d be lost.

Malaria is a serious health risk in the rain season and we try to provide a safe environment also for our boys and girls as they grow up and become easy pray of local organised crime and prostitution rings.

Please help us give this kids a chance in life. We need your help for basic needs:
1. The monthly feeding our kids.
2. Mosquito nets replacement.
3. Educational material for the kids.
4. Clothing and other basic needs.

We are raising funds for our hopefully imminent return to Liberia, organising the transfer of the orfphanage will involve many costs from travel to bureaucracy.

I am praying that God will bring more sponsorship this year, because what we are receiving is small, so we are really suffering to meet the kids needs as well as wants. I am praying for you daily so God can give increases, so the kids be blessed from your good wills.

Letter to SanctisFundMe January 18th 2020.

Amen! My dear faithful brother!

Remember these words, God is on the throne on your behalf, you are going to be abundantly Blessed, because your concert is an Charitable mind all inter faith without discrimination! I struggle a lot just to take care of nobody’s children, until through prayers God connected us.

Listen, I prayed for so many people around the world and things works for them ,in theirs job, business, companies, schools, family life etc, and God’s blessings followed all ! This is how I getting support for the less- privilege Children’s and orphans.

And this year 2020, God going to do a new things in our lives! Let’s keep truthful to Him at all times ! Remember this always:God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with. We ought to be people of compassion. And being people of compassion means we deny ourselves, and our self centreedness.

“Charity sees the need not the cause.” You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay. St. Matthew 25:35, I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me into your home. Isaiah 58:10 Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.

Father, This is the day you have made, we will rejoice and be glad in it! For You promise Your beloved rest between Your shoulders. You are ever so close to us, Father. We can do all things through You …for You are the source of our strength. Let all we do honour You, Father. As you encourage us, let us be an encouragement to those around us. Remind us when we falter and fail that You uphold us.

Your merciful hand has purposed our lives, and we cannot outrun your love or free gift of salvation by Jesus’ sacrifice for us. Father, you weave our stories throughout ancient history and onto tomorrow. You number our days and surround us with Your love. When we are down, send Your Holy Spirit to remind us of Your loving kindness. There is much to fear and be frustrated about in this life on earth.

There is grave injustice, oppression, and unfairness everywhere we look. Disastrous weather events and horrific acts of violence. We fear losing our lives and our loved ones, disease and disaster. You are our comforter through it all. In Your Word we are upheld and in Your arms we throw our anxieties and find safety and protection. When the world seems to press into our lives harder than we can bear, we know we are never holding on alone. You remind us to be strong and courageous, to rely on You for strength, and not to fear.

You promise to strengthen us and uphold us. Through every heartache and conflict, continue to broadcast the truth of Your word into our hearts. Encourage us, Father, always. Help us to navigate the tricky waters of relationships on this earth and hurdle the stumbling blocks the enemy lines our daily paths with. We know in this world we will have trouble, but we do not want to let it steal our joy! For You have overcome this world!

Though it can be hard and discouraging, let us take heart in Your truth. Squash every distorted thought and lie with the encouraging words of Christ. “Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest!” (Matthew 11:28) King David stated, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (Psalm 27:1)

He, and so many other Biblical hallmarks have left their legacies of Your encouraging word despite their sins and shortcomings. Let us fall in their footsteps, Father, following You despite our imperfections. Adjust our expectations through Your perspective.

Help us to keep getting up, keep following You, keep hoping, and holding onto the joy and peace Jesus died to give us. He is our ultimate source of encouragement. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. In His unconditional love and hugs, +Rev.Fr.Emmanuel

Above are a few photos of our recent Christmas 2019 Celebrations and 2020 New Year’s Celebrations, only made possible to thanks to the kind hearts of the donors that have supported us this year, below those from the celebration of the new year we can’t see, it where God blesses us.

Jesus, said Blessed are those who have not seeing but yet believe.

May your heart be filled with the joy of giving, as it is the expression of the love in your heart and the kindness in your soul.

May your life be filled with joy and happiness and may each new day bring you moments to cherish.

Thanks for your efforts.

“Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You; or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and make You welcome; naked and clothe You; sick or in prison and go to see You?” Jesus replies “I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.” “In so far as you neglected to do this to one of the least, you neglected to do it to me.” [St.Matthew 25:37-40, 45-46].
