“Peace is Possible” – A fight against hunger
MEALS FOR ORPHANS
In 2016, Connecting Angels nonprofit was honored to be chosen as an affiliate of the international PEACE IS POSSIBLE campaign, launched by JCI-Junior Chambers International. To support this mission, we launched a series of activities, to fight against hunger and take care of the underprivileged orphans in poor communities in Cameroon, Africa.
Donation of Meals to MISSPA Orphanage, May 14th, 2017
In the middle of a canceled school year in the local city of Bamenda, Cameroon due to political
unrest, the Connecting Angels team of young volunteers, got together to be a light in their local community. These Young Leaders, put their lives at risk in between ghost towns and curfews, to organize a visit to the local orphanage, and donate some food items.
The orphanage, located in Mile 5 Nkwen, Bamenda, is home to about 113, ages ranging from 1-22 years. Majority were between the ages of 12 and 15, and about 70 were present on the day of donation.
We presented them with gifts of two cartons of frozen fish, 20 liters of cooking oil, exercise books (donated by Switch Entertainment), pens, candies and some clothing. Connecting Angels collaborated with Switch Entertainment in visit a tremendous success.
YOUNG LEADERS VOLUNTEER PROGRAM
Our Connecting Angels incorporated the element of youth mentorship by involving young volunteers in the local communities. In Bamenda, our volunteers are a dynamic group, who also have needs. They lack opportunities to finish school, pay tuition, or earn a living. Yet, in spite of their current hardship, they took the time to uplift the children at the Orphanage on HOPE, teach them about personal hygiene, and encourage them to know that they are loved.
We are so proud of our youth volunteers. Please support their mission, and zeal by supporting the Connecting Angels peace campaign, to provide meals to orphans. Our youth volunteers are ready in different cities to carry out these visits. When you donate to our cause, you indirectly provide hope, and meaning to the volunteers as well as the orphans.
Please visit our website for a detailed report on this visit.
