Children’s Shelter Ho
On one hand, the rescued trafficked children from Lake Volta are accommodated in our Children’s Shelter. On the other hand, there are also orphans and children who have been severely abused in their families.
These are often children under the age of 6 and infants. Unfortunately, we have also taken care of severely abused babies.
The shelter offers space for about 90 children. Our specially trained caregivers and other loving staff look after the children as if they were their own.
The children experience love and care, they go to school and play. For many of them, it is the first time, that they have ever felt a sense of security. They lack nothing!
In addition to the main hostel on two floors, there is a kitchen, a dining room, a common room with a library, an office and emergency accommodation, where another 16 children can be accommodated, as well as a first aid station.
On the large outdoor area there is a playground and a large football pitch, which we were able to realise together with the famous football club BVB.
In order to meet the needs of the many toddlers and even infants, who are entrusted to the care of our Children’s Shelter, a Kindergarten for the little ones was established on the premises of the children’s home in 2022.
Additionally, new playground equipment for toddlers was acquired.
We sincerely thank Sternstunden e.V. for making this possible.
The children depend on your donation. With a regular free donation you help us to maintain and further improve the children’s home. By taking on a sponsorship, we can make schooling possible for the children and finance the expenses for daily life.
