Some CVCO Members With Some Children Of Siamekome

The children of Siamekope, an Island on Lake Volta need your help! Community Vulnerable Children Organization [CVCO] brings you more details so read on.

The people of Siamekope are among the early settlers who built a community on islands along the Volta River in areas where they could have bumper harvests.

Siamekope, also called Siamekome, is not connected to the national grid, hence, has no electricity. In addition, they have no clean sources of drinking water, no health post, no school, among others. About one hundred people live here.

Residents seeking health care, children seeking education, and women needing household items would have to make the journey over the river without life jackets to get to town.

Some Members Of CVCO Crossing Lake Volta To Siamekope

Princess is a 7year old girl, a pupil of Adidome primary school. She lives with her parents on the aforementioned island, Siamekome, on Lake Volta. According to her, children on this island take boats to school every blessed day without life jackets and whenever it rains, they absent themselves from school due to the tides.

 
Princess in interaction with CVCO who paid a visit to the island lamented that they use torchlight to learn and whenever the battery goes low, that ends learning for her and other students. 

The children living there are crying out for help in terms of battery-powered lamps, chargeable lamps, and other learning materials to aid study at night.

Listening to Princess’s demands, the organization, CVCO, decided to visit and bless Princess and other students living on the island and also render free medical screening to the people of Siamekome.
