Special Care for Mohammed
At just 14 years old, Mohammed was struggling with epilepsy and was being cared for solely by his unemployed mother because his father is elderly and unwell. This left Mohammed without access to critical medical treatment or education.
However, with the unwavering support of Create Hope Ghana, Mohammed’s life has been transformed for the better. The program was able to get him to the hospital and provide him with a treatment plan, which has given him the opportunity to manage his epilepsy and live a fuller life. Moreover, Jonathan and Rhoda went above and beyond to find a special needs teacher who could provide Mohammed with an education, which he had previously been denied. As a result, he now has access to essential educational resources, such as books, a backpack, and school uniforms, that he previously lacked.
Mohammad now has both the necessary medical care and educational opportunities to lead a better future than his family had previously thought possible.
A Home for Stephen
Despite facing poverty and uncertainty from a young age, Stephen’s struggles intensified when his father passed away and his grandfather kicked him and his mother out of their home. They became homeless with a newborn sister, and Christiana, Stephen’s mother, struggled to make ends meet by selling soft drinks and water. The family was barely able to afford rent, food, and school fees, a common reality for widows in Tamale who often lose their homes after their husbands pass away, and in many cases they lose their rights to their children too.
The family recently faced a perfect storm of financial challenges. With both their annual rent and school fees for Stephen and his sister due at the same time, they were at risk of eviction and the children dropping out of school. Create Hope Ghana came to their aid and provided the family with two years of rent and school fees, offering a glimmer of hope in a time of crisis. Thanks to the program’s unwavering support, Stephen and his sister were able to continue their education and build a brighter future. Create Hope Ghana’s compassion and dedication made all the difference in this family’s journey towards stability and success.
