Meals

Everyone has to eat. There are a lot of people without food struggling to survive and everything helps.

STORIES THAT INSPIRE

Anita Budu, Director of Aftercare for IJM Ghana, anxiously watched from the deck of a boat as the horizon began to pale with the light of sunrise. Much more time and her team might be noticed by the fishermen in the area. Might miss the opportunity they had so carefully planned for: to rescue children who had been forced to work as slaves on fishing boats on this massive lake.

She pressed down on the button of her radio, trying to contact police and IJM teams on two rescue boats that had broken down en route to the target area. In this remote part of Lake Volta, the radio was not in range, and Anita struggled to pick up any signal on her phone.

Finally a call came through. The police and IJM teams were on their way and the rescue could begin.

The rescue boats disappeared from Anita’s sight around an island that loomed between the aftercare boat and the fishing area. She again lost contact with the rescue team, signal blocked by a small mountain on the island.

After the longest silence, her radio crackled.

“Children’s boat: please prepare to receive 10 children.”

The rescue operation was successful. In time, five more rescue boats returned to Anita with children on board.

Now that the children are safe, we will continue to walk alongside them as they heal; developing a treatment plan to address their education, health, security, emotional and psychological needs, and ensuring that their future is one of safety where they are free to thrive.

Accelerated Wealth is a proud supported of the work od IJM.
