Me and my 2 friends went volunteering at the King Jesus Orphanage in Kumasi with SFLIG Volunteers (Sfligvolunteers) in September 2016 was very exciting.
For me, it was my second time to volunteer at this orphanage, so I was really excited to see all the kids back.
When we arrived the first day, we immediately received a hundred hugs from the little ones, which was the cutest thing ever!
Before we left Belgium, the three of us raised a lot of toys, clothes and other things to donate to the orphanage. We also organized a fundraising and were able to pay the schoolfees of some of the grownups. I can’t even put out in words how thankful they were for our help! It is so rewarding to be able to help out with just doing small things!
During our stay, we lived with a host family, which is also a great experience. Personally, I have been volunteering before and the difference between staying with a local family or staying at a volunteers residence is huge! Would really recommend doing this!
