PWA's 2017 Christmas Appeal

Date Posted: 21/11/2017

Our 2017 Christmas Appeal is here, read on to find out more about how you can help.

“Have yourself a merry little Christmas, let your heart be light. From now on, our troubles will be out of sight”…you sang that just then, didn’t you?! Haha

We can’t promise to banish your troubles but we might be able to make your heart a little lighter, and you can definitely make someone else’s heart a little lighter.

While the UK is dreaming of cosy nights in front of the TV with warm mince pies and a glass (or two!) of wine, our families here in tropical Ghana have got a different set of dreams, definitely not involving fleecy onesies or slipper socks!

When you’re living in an area where 1 in 5 children die before their 5th birthday, simply surviving is priority number 1. The work that PWA does aims to change that devastating statistic. Throughout the year we work tirelessly with vulnerable children and families living in some of the most underdeveloped villages on the south coast of Ghana. From running malaria prevention events to hygiene and nutrition workshops to providing children’s daycare, we support and empower people to make changes that make a positive impact on the whole family. You could help us continue this into 2018, by making a donation to our Christmas Appeal.

As a small charity, operating at grass-roots level, we can promise that your donations will go to supporting the children and families we work with, giving them the hope for the future that is so important at this Christmas season.

Take a look at our appeal here for more info and to donate safely and securely online.

Thank you.

“We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas”…you’re singing again aren’t you?!
