From Portugal with Love

Sep 12, 2016 | 0 comments

Our incredible Education Sponsors, Filhos do Coração, sent a team from Portugal to visit the kids at our Care Center. Their mission was to spread joy and we are pretty sure they accomplished that!

The Portuguese team brought clothing, shoes, school supplies, art supplies, educational DVDs, two tablets with art applications, and a new stereo for playing music in Seth’s Social Center! As much as they brought to Ghana, the team told us that they left even more full of love.

The team from Filhos do Coração planned a whole week filled with magical moments. They began by painting a mural on the side of one of the boys’ dorms, showing a Ghanaian child holding a yoga pose with a heart!

After that, the week was full of color runs, face painting, fairy visits, glow sticks, and even a field trip for our youngest children to go horseback riding!
