Humanity First Hf Ghana

Humanity First (HF) Ghana, a charity, donated sacks of rice and a bull to Mama Laadi Orphanage in Bolgatanga Municipality in the Upper East Region as part of activities marking the celebration of Eid-Ul-Adha.

The items, worth GH¢5,000.00, were presented to the orphanage management as part of HF Ghana’s ‘Feeding the Needy’ program in a brief ceremony at the home attended by the orphans whose faces were full of smiles when they saw the articles.

Mr. Mohammed Naeem Kpedau, a volunteer from HF, Ghana, who presented the items, said, “It is more fitting and timely to support Mama Laadi Orphanage in this month of giving, sharing and festivity, so that our orphans join the rest of the world in marking the celebrations of Eid-ul-Adha 2022.”

He said HF Ghana was established by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission under the divine guidance of the Fourth Caliph to promote and safeguard human life and dignity.

“This is an apolitical, non-religious and non-sectarian international relief and development agency that works with the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. It was officially established in the UK in 1995 and now operates in over 58 countries around the world, including Ghana,” he said.

Mr. Kpedau said that HF ​​was officially registered in Ghana on June 25, 1996 and operates in all parts of the country, adding that the organization relies on its selfless and dedicated volunteers to continue its program.

Its activities, he said, were primarily on the ground and, more importantly, funds were raised through volunteerism, collaboration and global sourcing with more than 75 partners around the world.

“This makes it unique compared to other international humanitarian organizations.”
The HF volunteer said the organization serves humanity in eight thematic and global program areas, including disaster relief, orphan care, food security, knowledge and water for life, global vision health donations and community care.

He said that apart from HF supporting the less privileged in society, he had over the years built and renovated health and education facilities, provided clean water and emergency medical services to communities, including disaster relief programs, among others, in various communities around the world.

Mr. Kpedau said that in ten years, HF Ghana had constructed over 300 boreholes in disadvantaged communities and institutions across Ghana.

Mr. Ismaan Ayariga, the administrator of the home, who received the items, said the orphanage was opened in 2005 and over the years has cared for several orphans, some of whom have become teachers, nurses, medical assistants and surveyors, among others.

He said the home is currently caring for 15 children and caring for around 25 children outside the home, and explained that “due to welfare reforms and the care reform initiative, we are not able to keep more children at home, but rather, we accompany them to their different homes.

Mr. Ayariga expressed his gratitude to HF Ghana and its international partners for their support and said the items would be used for their intended purpose.
