The non-governmental organization (NGO) that supports unemployed children aged 0 to 18 years has provided substantial support to this orphanage located at PK9 in Douala, for the start of the 2021/2022 school year.
The 26 residents of the Orphanage of “The Work of the Voiceless”, all have a face beaming with joy this Saturday, September 4, 2021. The good reason for this is that, the members of the NGO International Assistance to Children visited them for the first time. The benefactors, who are making their first visit since the creation of their organization, did not come empty-handed. They brought school supplies and food for all the children of the orphanage for the start of the school year, which begins this Monday, September 6, 2021 in Cameroon.
Michel Junior Nguidjol, the president of the NGO, accompanied this gesture with an envelope to help pay school fees for about fifteen children. Thanks to the contribution of its members, the association says it has spent about 600,000 CFA francs for the donation this Saturday. Out of 1 600 000 FCFA, necessary for the schooling of about fifteen children of the orphanage, “we took care of half of this amount”, says Michel Junior Nguidjol, who promises to come back to ensure that the beneficiaries make good use of it.
A donation and promises that put a smile on the face of Mama Monique Bassomb. The promoter of the orphanage, confined in a chair by a stroke, did not expect such a great material and financial mobilization. “The children will start school with everything this year. I thank you very much”, she rejoiced despite her health condition. Gabriella, one of the valiant residents of orphanage is equally joyful: “I am very happy. May God bless you abundantly.”
Orphaned of father and mother since he was 4 years old, Michel Junior Nguidjol has a “dream to contribute to giving a smile to children other than those we have given birth to”. A dream that has materialized with the creation of International Assistance to Children.
Michel Junior relies on his experience as needy child to urge these orphans to work “assiduously, in order to become tomorrow’s talents in society, but especially in return, benefactors for other needy children”.
Having lived through a difficult childhood, “every member of our organization here understands perfectly what every child in this orphanage needs and hopes for. Hope and education…key words in an environment increasingly difficult and undermined by many traps for our children,” explains the leader of the NGO that aims to continue its social works in other shelters for needy children in Cameroon and beyond.
