Love andCare Foundation is a legally registered charity organization with new innovation to help eliminate poverty in Ghana.
Isn’t Ghana developing Country rich with natural resources (gold, diamond, alluminium, bauxite timber)? Why are there poor people? And some seems to be trapped in the poverty cycle from generation to generation, WHY? There is no one easy answer for these questions. It may range from lack of opportunities, education, mind set and structural oppression to systematic poverty. Hence poverty alleviation may require both community development as well as advocacy in policies and structural change. There will be no lasting change if the individual does not truly desire or own the change process.
That is why love and care foundation, a legally registered charitable organization is desire to serve the needy, the poor and people with special needs irrespective of religion and ethnicity by empowering communities for a longer term sustainability development through the wholistic mission of Christ.
