Association and group home in support of single mothers and children
We are an Italian non-profit organisation with a partner in Africa (Oasis de l’Espérance) which, since 2014, has sustained an initiative supporting single mothers and children separated from their families. In 2018, we began working on a medical and socio-educational facility.
L'Oasis de l'Espérance
It is our partner organization, recognised by the Cameroon government: today there is also staff in Africa made up of doctors and qualified personnel, that provides on-site support.
We have assisted 20 children: orphans abandoned in garbage dumps, on the streets or in the trash as newborns.
Today, all of them go to school and have an adoptive or foster family.
Souza is a village in Cameroon in the Littoral Region, about 30 km from Doula, where we acquired the land to build a group home. Construction began in November 2018.

THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN FOUND, HOSTED AND GRANTED TO FAMILIES IN FOSTER CARE, AS WELL AS COVERING SCHOOL AND HEALTH CARE COSTS, IN THE LAST 5 YEARS
THE NUMBER OF MEMBERS IN THE NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION WHO ACTIVELY WORK ON OR SUPPORT OUR PROJECT ON THE GROUND, OR THROUGH THEIR PRECIOUS DONATIONS:<br /> COORDINATED AND GUIDED BY THE STRENGTH AND PRAYERS OF DON SIMONE<br />
THE AMOUNT OF MONEY COLLECTED TO DATE, THANKS TO THE MANY PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN OUR PROJECT … BUT WE NEED JUST AS MUCH TO FINISH BUILDING OUR HEALTH CENTRE
To accommodate single mothers or future mothers separated from their families who find themselves alone and without support, or who feel compelled to abort.
To support them during their pregnancy, help them give birth, teach them a trade, assist them in becoming self-sufficient in order to enter society and be able to continue their life path with their child.
To gather abandoned children who have sometimes even been thrown in the garbage and, after initial psychological and physical support, help find them a foster family.
To build a vital medical and social assistance centre that is able to maintain itself once it has been inaugurated.
THE MEDICAL CENTRE
In 2016, we bought about 3000 square metres of land. After a year of planning and the selection of more than five local businesses, we finalised a contract and lay the first brick in November 2018. The construction should take 2 years … but we need funds to complete it: WE’VE STARTED AND WE DO BELIEVE!
We have accomplished a lot… but we still have a lot more to do.

Thanks to Oasi del Germoglio, we have provided many children with a family, medicine, which in some cases has saved their lives, and we are looking after their education … and they write us marvellous letters …
