Aussieghana Relief was founded in 2010 when we Rae-Anne (Aussie) and Shanton (Ghana) moved to Ghana for a year. We wanted to do something to contribute to the plight of the most disadvantaged; the women and children.
Our projects have all been completely self-funded to date, as we wanted to be able to make a direct contribution and impact, from the heart.
In 2016 we began to embark on our most ambitious project yet – building the Aussieghana Relief Women’s Shelter. This will be the first Women’s Shelter in Ghana.
