I was extremely touched by the creativity, time, effort, and energy that the teachers and parents put forth to host such an amazing event! I feel incredibly lucky to be surrounded by a community that has embraced and celebrated the work being done in Ghana through A Better Life for Kids. Thank you very much!
$2,000 was raised through Cupcake Wars which will be used to fight malaria as my husband and I travel to Ghana this summer. We will focus on making improvements to an orphanage we support. Due to a lack of financial resources, the orphanage has been unable to repair the large holes and tears in the screens in the babies' room, dormitories, and common areas of the orphanage. We will use the donations raised to repair and replace the screens which will dramatically reduce the number of cases of malaria that infect and kill 20,000 babies and children a year in Ghana! We will also bring insecticide-treated mosquito nets and educate the orphanage staff on the importance of using them each night. Additionally, we will purchase anti-malaria medication to treat the children already infected. Thank you for being a part of a life-saving project!
