After a visit from a small mission team during August 2010 to FILA in Zuarungu, Bolgatanga in the north east region of Ghana, a new water project has been installed. The community of around 5000 people have been making do with a well built many years ago by the British but this is now reaching the end of its useful life. Mission Internatioanl has now funded the installation of a new water storage tank for a local primary school run by FILA and will install a public tank when funds are in place.

Can you sponsor a child?
FILA, Mission International partners in Ghana, need sponsors for the many poor, needy and orphaned children in the North East of the country, a selection of these kids are shown below. For £20 a month you can fully sponsor a child but shared sponsorship starts at £5 per month. The kids shown here and many others, should they find a sponsor, have a bright future ahead of them. You as their sponsor will provide for food, clothing, accommodation, education and medical cover. Mission International will send you regular progress updates about your sponsored child including pictures and a message from the child.

In the upper east region of Ghana near the town of Bolgatanga FILA were able to feed 120 orphans on Christmas Day with a grant from Mission International's The BIG Meal.
A special meal on Christmas Day also provided the opportunity to tell the many children that God loves them and let them know the real meaning of Christmas.
Many of these orpahns are loved by no-one. All of their relatives are either dead or have rejected them. To know of God's great love through Christ Jesus is even more special than the meal they enjoyed on Christmas Day. If you would like to feed these children o regular basis then please make your donation by using the links on the right hand column of this page. It cost £25 per year to feed a child at school and £20 per month to fully sponsor a child.
