Murial and Sandenna Visit Ghana

Dreams for Orphans sponsors Murial and her daughter Sandenna recently visited the orphans in Ghana. Here is a note from Sandenna about their trip:

“Landing in Ghana I felt the sudden burst of happiness I had been anticipating, come to full effect. The people, the culture, the atmosphere, I was convinced it couldn’t get any better than this. Until I visited the wonderful children of Great Mission International and Village of Hope. Right then, I knew my life has changed. These children had the warmest hearts and kindest eyes. They taught me to not only love all, but to accept all. These orphanages were a home. Not only to the children, but to all who visited. The beautiful people who worked with the children were so genuine. They welcomed us with open arms and treated us as one. Thank you Dreams for Orphans for teaching me that the true amenities in life cannot be manufactured. Thank you for showing me what truly matters.”

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.
