We wanted to share some recent stories from the Grace AIDS Project that Mocha Club supports in Sunyani, Ghana.
Charity Anaba, 18-years-old, and Ebenezer Anaba, 15-years-old, lost both of their parents to AIDS about 7 years ago. Charity and Ebenezer are staying with their Uncle Amurugu in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. Both children attend school at High Street Primary and Junior High School. Charity is in JHS one and Ebenezer is in Primary six.
The uncle already has six children of his own, and his annual income as a farmer and security guard is less than $400. The uncle therefore finds it very difficult, if not impossible, to supply the needs of the two children,including food. Charity and Ebenezer had to stop going to school because the uncle couldn’t provide them with basic needs like books or uniforms. African Leadership/Mocha Club has decided to help these children, providing them with books and food, and they are now back in school! We have also helped provide for their health premium.
“We are very grateful to African Leadership for making it possible for us to go back to school and taking care of us.” – Charity Anaba

And here’s another testimonial from someone helped by Grace AIDS Project…
“Thank you for the medications I have been receiving from the Sunyani Regional Hospital, they have given me hope and prolonged life. My husband died of the same disease two years ago, leaving me with four children.” – Regina Kumi
