City of Refuge Outreach Ministries – CORM exists to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ extended to the children of Ghana who have been trafficked, orphaned or abandoned. The ministry was started in 2006 by Johnbull and Stacy Omorefe. Today, CORM has an established children’s home in Doryum, Ghana. At this time, the children’s home is a rented house. However, construction for the “Children’s Village” was begun in December of 2010. The village chiefs of Doryum granted CORM twenty acres of land to build a school, clinic, safe homes, guest houses, and more. The project is projected to have phase one completed in August of 2011!!
One of Sydney’s first visions was to feed the street children. For the story of how God introduced us to Johnbull and Stacy, click here. It is powerful! Through this meeting, we have partnered with CORM to provide a feeding program for children in remote fishing villages in the Volta region. Monthly these children are shown the love of Christ, given a nutritious meal and deworming medicine. The purpose is to develop lasting relationships.
There are thousands of children along Lake Volta in Ghana who are being used as slaves. These children are receiving no education or care from their masters. Many of the children only receive one meal a day, which usually consists of gari (made from cassava) soaked in the lake water. Many parents are not interested in taking their children back, as they have no means of providing for them, and yet other parents see their children as a source of income, so if rescued; they could be sold again.
CORM seeks to rescue these precious children, show them the love of Jesus, and love them as children should be loved. Through the feeding program, masters’ hearts are being broken for the children they have working for them. PRAISE JESUS! However….these children have no place to go. We are partnering with City of Refuge to raise the funds needed to provide a safe haven for these children. A HOME where they can sleep, a school where they can learn, and a clinic where they can receive appropriate medical care. $45,000 will provide all of this for them. Please consider donating to these children. We are challenging youth groups across the nation to come together and fight for these children who have lived a life of slavery.
