Food Sharing Program for Street-Connected Children
The Rebecca Foundation, Ghana’s First Lady’s foundation, made a generous donation of rice, meat, oil and tomato paste to cook for the children on the street amid the Covid-19 pandemic. This contributed to our Food Sharing Program, which we started on April 1st in Accra and in Kumasi in collaboration with other NGOs.
Helpline for Street-Connected Children
Street-connected children can contact local key persons who live in our area or work. These people own a phone through which the children can reach our street team at any time.

Follow-up calls for children and families
Since we are currently unable to visit the children who are being supported within their family, we have set up a system to ensure that they are doing well by contacting the children, parents and local key people in the communities.
