Africa Mission Trip
Ghana, West Africa Mission Trip in January 2017
This approximately 10-day trip will be spent with children, ages 4 – 17, at Touch A Life’s Care Center. Most of our time will be spent on special projects as needed. Last year, we painted, did art projects, helped younger children at the Care Center school, and had a birthday party for each child. Get your passport or check to ensure your current one does not need to be renewed.
Touch a Life provides long-term care to rescued children who were sold by their parents and rescued from working as a slave in the fishing industry on Lake Volta in Ghana. The care center in Kumasi, Ghana is now home to 47 children, ranging in age from 6 to 17.
