Newsnowgh donates to widows and needy in Wogu and Dorimo communities in UWR.

Newsnowgh is an online portal established a couple of years ago whose reference mainly is in the field of posting local news, jobs, and worldwide scholarships.

It's Able leadership are made up of young philanthropist, and generous individuals who have brought together few hundreds of voluntary members under one umbrella group on the newsnowgh platform, aimed at posting online daily local news, current jobs, global scholarships and travel abroad opportunities on their platform.

Another philanthropic gesture is taken upon themselves to help the poor, sick, vulnerable, widows and the less privilege in society who needs assistance but cannot afford due to lack of financial support.

Children with chronic and life-threatening diseases whose families could not support their emergency surgeries with have been assisted and surgeries performed with huge costs paid by volunteers whose donations the leaders have utilized for purposes of saving lives.

Towards the end of year 2022,an appeal for fund was launched to raise an amount of ghc30,000 to support children, the poor, needy, orphans and widows in Wogu and Dorimo communities is the Upper West Regions. Though towards the end of the campaign less than the projected amount was raised, more than 300 people benefited. For instance widows were each given a 6piece textile cloth and 5 kilos of rice while the orphans were given assorted clothing,dresses,sandals and shoes. 

The project and donations were done in 2 phases on 2nd and 3rd January, 2023 in the Dorimo and Wogu communities

in the Upper West Region . Items made up of over 240 pieces of wax prints, bags or rice, sneakers, assorted clothings, shoes and sandals and many more items were donated.

Beneficiaries included more 50 old women, 40widows,100 orphans and more than 100 needy and vulnerable children in the communities.

Making the donations in a ceremony and gathering of many with traditional Upper West drumming and dance, the leaders joined the beneficiaries in dancing and singing. Smiles were all over the faces of recipients as they expressed joy and satisfaction and heaped praises and blessings on the group. They expressed appreciation for such generosity and wished the group well in their future endeavours.

As a member on the platform and touched by what I have seen,I decided to put this piece together and to thank leaders, members on the newsnowgh platform, all those who made this project a success, especially those who donated towards putting smiles on the faces of those who needed them most.

If any philanthropists, NGO's, individuals and international donors would like to be part of these annual projects now and the future, kindly contact newsnowgh online.

Thanks for reading.
