THE STORY:

Denise Powell wrote -

On Memorial Day I'll be running in the 33rd annual BolderBoulder 10K road race for OrphanAid Africa (OA). Based in Ghana, OA helps families of children at risk of abandonment and gives them secure futures within their communities.

In 2008, I had the privilege of traveling to Ghana with my husband, Ryan, and worked directly with the children at OA's Foster Family Community in Ayenyah, an impoverished village where OA is headquartered. I also had the opportunity to work with the founder, Lisa Lovatt-Smith and learned first-hand why OA is unique. The NGO transforms systems by promoting the rights of the 4,000 orphans and vulnerable children currently under the care of institutions through family tracing and re-unification and foster care.

For the last 2 years, I had served as a permanent volunteer for OA and am now more heavily involved, working as the NGO's USA Manager. Please support my cause, as you can trust me that your money is going to a fantastic organization for the direct benefit of the children.

OrphanAid Africa is a registered 501c3 non-profit, non-governmental organization, a UNICEF partner and an implementing partner of the Government of Ghana's National Plan of Action for Orphans and Vulnerable Children, ensuring children grow up in families as opposed to institutional care.

THANK YOU AND PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!!!
