On December 26th 2016, the Bisong Foundation organised a visit to the orphanage “Le Bon Berger”. This orphanage is located at Nkoabong, a neighbourhood of Yaounde, the capital city of Cameroon.

We arrived at 14.00 and we were greeted by all of the cute little children.

The children looked so happy when they saw us. They cheered happily and welcomed us with opened arms. We were all surprised with their respond.

The event started off with a short prayer followed by the opening speech from the Vice President of Bisong Foundation Mr Jean-Philip Ntoukam. The mother of the orphanage Mama Marie welcomed us with her short speech followed by some beautiful songs from the children.

After that, we sang and danced with the children. We also performed two short sketches based on forced marriages and education. We had a lot of fun and the children enjoyed themselves very well. They seemed to have a nice time with us. Lastly, we gave presents that we had brought to the children. We set up a Christmas Tree and gave presents such as:
• Toys
• Rice
• Cooking oil
• Medications
• Washing soap
• Biscuits, chocolate and sweets
• Drinks

Then we took some pictures with the children and had a walk around the orphanage. Mama Marie thanked us for our generosity. She reported to us that it has been very difficult for her to pay the children’s school fees and urged us to visit again.

Soon, it was time to leave. Everyone had a great time and this visit was a huge success. Mama Marie’s words were echoed by one of the children when she said she would like Bisong Foundation to visit the orphanage again. She went on to state that we” rarely get help”.

We hope to visit “Le Bon Berger” and other orphanages in the near future as we aim to improve the lives of the vulnerable children and adults in Cameroon. Bisong Foundation feels that everyone deserves to have a life surrounded by love, to have nutritious food, education, health and safety. But sadly not everyone does. We care for the orphans and the underprivileged in Cameroon. The visit to the orphanage was a fulfilling one.
