Fantastic Progress on the Pediatric Care Unit, More Funds Needed to Finish

We are well into 2015 with lots of wonderful progress to be proud of! Dreams for Orphans efforts are currently focused on the Pediatric Care Unit being built at the Village of Hope Hospital in Ghana. Construction is coming along quite nicely with more completions each day. We are so excited to see this incredible project coming to life!

The funds raised during our Season of Giving campaign have brought the next round of materials to the Pediatric Care Unit construction site (iron rods, sand, chippings, cement, wood). Carpenters, steel benders and masons are hard at work continuing the next phase of building. During this phase, workers will construct over 70 pillars and make the beams that form the framework to support the building’s second story, and make the stairs that connect the two floors. The next step will be to create the first floor’s ceiling. So much time, care, and manual labor is going into this project! More funds are needed to complete the concrete roof to seal it all up. The roof will protect the structure from water so that builders can start on interior plumbing and electricity.

About the Author
My 24 years as a flight attendant have enabled me to travel and see much of the world. When I started going to Africa my passion was born to help the less fortunate and show my own 3 children this imbalance. I wanted them to know they had a responsibility to others as they grow up in a world that most things are readily accessible to them and are not to most the world. It is easy to fall in love with children in Africa. It is more difficult to find appropriate ways to help. Education was by far the first tool we knew could be powerful and effective. Combining this with improved environment, enables them to grow and thrive with food, shelter, medical care and most of all love.I travel to Ghana as a flight attendant monthly and enjoy taking my children on working trips as well as our own vacation time. Being on the ground making sure the DFO funds are carefully dispatched is rewarding and I am compensated by their huge smiles and hugs every time I visit. Seven years have gone by so fast and I cannot imagine my life without DFO and all the children. As Dreams continues to grow I relish the fact that the number of orphans we are helping is increasing. We are able to expand to more orphanages and provide education and safe environments to those orphans who deserve a rich and happy life.
