BENEFITING: PH8 Foundation
Osenli Open Hands Foundation (OOHF), The pH8 Foundation and A Friendly Hand Organization are three non-profit organizations started by close friends. We are changing the way charity works while also changing the world for the better.
After visiting Ghana in November of 2015, Oscar Justin Arceo founded OOHF in order to help put an end to the poverty and suffering he saw during his trip. With a promise to return this year, he’s invited all of us to help in his mission and has targeted three specific areas where we can have a huge impact on the lives of the people of Ghana.
In the village of Lamletse, nearly 700 people walk more than two miles each day to collect water that is not even fit to drink. Your generosity ensures that they will have a brand new well with clean, safe drinking water which the entire village will easily be able to access.
God’s Gift Street Academy in Accra, Ghana is responsible for over 350 students, many of whom are orphans. Your donations will provide them with a brand new computer lab with full internet access as well as many other basic school supplies so they can have a truly enriching education.
Three of the most important medical centers in Ghana’s capital are often without the supplies necessary to fully do their jobs. Through your contribution, the Princess Marie Louise Children's Hospital, Accra Psychiatric Hospital and the Accra Rehabilitation Center will each receive the medical supplies needed to continue serving some of the most vulnerable in the community.
From November to December of 2016, members of all three organizations will be traveling to Ghana to facilitate the drilling of the well, set up the brand new computer lab and distribute the medical necessities.
Considering the massive impact this will have for over 1,000 people in Ghana, our fundraising goal of $9,000 is actually rather modest. That means that a donation of less than $9 can help change someone’s life forever.
Furthermore, every donation made is fully tax deductible and fully transparent. We use the 100% charity model, which means that each dollar you contribute goes completely and directly toward the actual costs of making this project a reality. NONE of your money will go toward operating costs, salaries, travel expenses or any anything else that doesn’t directly impact the lives of those we are here to help.
We thank you for your generosity and look forward to sharing the stories of those you helped after we return from our journey!
