Sharing Resources with Ghana
We have just shipped over a wheelchair and a walker which Nicola Garrett donated, and will be given to Esther, a 6-year-old girl with Cerebral Palsy in Ghana. We used some of our profit from the Grotto to pay for the shipping.
Healthy Living Platform
This year we have collaborated with Healthy Living Platform to provide free food for the children and families attending our afterschool club.
Thank you to Nevin and Yusuf!
