The Westerbys – Building Capacities at the Refugee Orphan Home
In June 2009 Dave and Kathy Westerby visited the Refugee Orphan Home to support the Benefit Culture Show put on by the orphans. Almost two years later they have returned to Ghana to provide service for the LDS Church, and have committed to volunteering their time and talents to improve communications, expanding sustainable income opportunities, and increase capaticites of staff and students at the Home. We’re grateful for their willing hearts and much needed skills in creating and building programs that will improve the lives and prospects for the children at the Home.
