100 FOR 100
Our 2014 Christmas project dubbed 100 FOR 100 targeted poverty-stricken families living in Abonko a farming village located in the Mfantsiman district of the Central Region of Ghana. The objective of this project was to donate a total of 100 Christmas hampers to 100 families.
Each hamper amounted to $34 and contained 5kg bag of rice, crates of eggs, puree tomatoes, cooking oil, a pack of iodated salt, soft drinks, biscuits, and bags of sachet water.
A total of 100 hampers were donated to 100 identified families during a durbur when the team made a courtesy call to the Chief and people of Abonko.
Our research confirmed that no such gesture has ever been extended to the inhabitants, thus, our act of kindness warmed the hearts of the people and brought meaning to the message of Christmas – LOVE.
The team funded a mini party on Easter day for the children of Beacon House Orphanage, East Legon –Accra. Aside from spending the day with the children some of whom are disabled, the team also made a donation.
Since establishing contacts with Beacon House Orphanage, we have maintained an ongoing relationship and continue to make periodic donations – a very recent one being a television set and a DVD player donated in September 2015.
Synergy Competition In aid of Teenage Cancer (UK)
Cancer is the number one cause of non-accidental death in young adults in the UK. Every day in the UK, six young people aged 13 to 24 are told they have cancer. That’s about 2100 young people per year.
A few of the young people diagnosed with cancer are able to recover after treatment but many more unfortunately do not live to experience life to the fullest. The Teenage Cancer Trust has been instrumental in setting up state-of-the-art units to provide expert care for affected young people in a friendly, home-from-home environment. However, four out of ten young people with cancer still do not have access to the expert support that the unit provides.
It is for this cause that Miss Adelaide Aba Ansah (Founder of Mylyfline.Com Foundation) during her studies in the United Kingdom led a group of students at Coventry University (London Campus) to participate in a campus-based competition to raise funds in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust Special Units Building Initiative.
Miss Adelaide Aba Ansah who led her team to raise a record amount of £2,800.00 at the end of the competition, said, she was glad to have carried the ‘caring heart of Mylyfline.Com Foundation’ with her abroad where she was still able to touch young lives.
The record amount raised remains unbroken to date 2015!!!
The Grant a Wish project gave an opportunity to a selection of children from poor homes to write a letter to Santa and request a present. The requests, which were written in the children’s own handwriting ranged from exercise books, dresses, calculators, school bags, football boot and others. The foundation posed as Santa and mobilized these items for the kids. We helped to spread the Christmas cheer. The joy that oozed from the faces of these kids as they anxiously opened their presents was inexplicable.
The attention of Foundation was drawn to Francis’ predicament in September 2012. Francis who hails from Dormaa Ahenkro, a small town in the Brong-Ahafo Region of Ghana is the son of a crippled single mother. Francis’ outstanding educational performance in the Junior High School final exams gained him admission into high school to pursue a 4-year science course at an all-boys boarding school – Prempeh College.
Although Francis was a brilliant student, his mother’s inability to support his high school education began to take a negative toll on his academic performance. He owed a year’s academic fees and was facing possible dismissal from school.
Upon investigating to ascertain the truth of this matter, the Foundation immediately embarked on an intensive fund-raising campaign to support Francis’ education.
Francis completed his senior high school education in 2014 and passed with flying colours. The foundation has set him up with own video game business – an idea which was birth by Francis himself. He’s personally managing the business to raise funds to support his dream of pursing a nursing career in the nearest future.
Christmas is noted as one of the special days in the lives of many children around the globe. As the excitement of Christmas is hyped, many souls on the streets are forgotten and the message of Christmas becomes meaningless.
Mylyfline.Com Foundation through her ‘X-MAS HOT PLATE’ initiative mobilized a total of 2,300 street children in Accra and treated them to a fun-filled Christmas Party at the Efua Sutherland Children’s park on 25th December 2011.
