Dear Sponsor, I am Padmore Baffour Agyapong. I have been the Country Director of Compassion Ghana for the past six years. My soft spot for the poor and marginalised in our society motivated me to author my maiden book, The Poor in our Midst. Compassion Ghana is 12 years old and currently supporting more than 75,200 children within 280 child development centres. I sincerely wish to express my utmost appreciation to you for sponsoring children in Ghana.open_in_new Read full letter
