Heart warming stories

Sheila & Charlotte visit Ghana to see progress.

Sheila and Charlotte in Ghana

GAYAK has helped a number of children to get on the first rung of the ladder of their life. In March 2010, Sheila Macdonald who sponsors a couple of children went along to Ghana with Charlotte Nightingale to see how her money was changing the lives of these little ones.
The experience really moved Sheila, and she has since become a big promoter and committee member based up in Manchester.

Left are a number of pictures from the schools in Ghana. These pictures were taken in March 2010, when Charlotte and Sheila McDonald from Manchester visited the Gayak children in Ghana.
