To ensure orphans and the less privileged in the society are not left out in this festive celebrations, Van Moorhouse Foundation (VMF) dined with children of Enough Grace Orphanage Foundation located at the heart of Accra, Ghana.
Dinning with the children was to lift their spirits up, and put smiles on their faces, as most children living at orphanages across Ghana are often forgotten during these festivities, and do not get the opportunity to celebrate such occasions with family and friends.
Enough Grace Orphanage Foundation, a registered Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) was established in the year 2006 by Mrs. Marian Adabie and her husband, Mr. Adabie, to raise and take care of the less privileged and vulnerable children in the Awoshie community, and society at large.

On her part, Mrs. Marian Adabei expressed her gratitude and appreciation to VMF for their support in this yuletide time.
To her, it is her passion to render social support and assistance to the community, hence the establishment of the orphanage, adding VMF gesture will go a long way to help the realization of this aim.
