Welcome to Childrens House of Hope
We are a registered charity in the UK which was set up with sole aim of delivering help and support to communities living in difficult situations in Ghana. We send regular shipments of clothing, toys, stationery, school equipment and basic medical supplies to medical centres, hospitals and rural villages. We largely fill our shipments with donated goods and raise money to fund the shipping expenses. Our emphasis is on getting our contribution directly to the people who need it.
In the last four years we have completed the build of Borderless International School which supports the children of Budumburam, particularly those living on the refugee camp there.
Even the smallest item or donation makes a real difference and in some cases can be life saving. Please take time to look around the site and if you feel as though you want to help then by all means get in touch.
House of Hope was registered as a charity by myself and some close friends in Burton upon Trent after my elective as a medical student in Ghana in 2010. I spent time working in Effia Nkwanta hospital and stayed in Abura village working in the health centre there.
I have maintained my links with the fantastic communities of people and the doctors in the hospital where I worked and we now send regular shipments mainly to the children in the communities, their schools and to the paediatric wards in the hospital.
We are also lucky enough to have found James Arthur with whom we work closely in Ghana to run Borderless International School, the building of which was completed in 2013.
I hope this website will tell you all you need to know about how to help. You can support specific projects or just make a general contribution, anything is welcome, whatever size.
I am really grateful for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you, I’m more than happy to answer any questions.
