After being a slave for 10 years he was rescued and brought to GMAD. He has already had a lifetime of hurt.
Now, with help from people just like you, his potential is limitless and his future is bright!
When asked, "What would you like to be when you grow up?" Chris answered, "A good father [smile], and probably a teacher also!" He is an excellent student and a natural peacekeeper at the children's shelter. He is quick to help our medical mission volunteers.

Since opening the Ghana Make a Difference Children's Shelter in 2012 we have learned that it is impossible to look at a child's situation without seeing their family also. Medical tragedies and a lack of education are the leading causes that break apart families in Ghana.
To better help children and their families we focus on these three areas:
3 FOCUS AREAS
Children rescued from slavery, abandonment, or those that have special needs are being cared for at GMAD. For the first time ever, the adults around them have their best interest in mind. The kids learn, play and thrive while social workers reintegrate them into society.
Each year, 4 medical missions take place, hosted and organized by GMAD. Dental, Eye and two surgical missions. Hundreds of people obtain their long awaited, life changing surgery! For better care, we have a medical clinic at GMAD that is operational year round.
Most children that get rescued and brought to GMAD have never attended school before. At GMAD children learn at their own pace using technology. Each child gains the practical know how of computer and english literacy, among other important essentials.
