Burkina Faso is a country in West Africa, located just South of the Sahara Desert. The population is around 21.5 million, and although there have been significant progress (estimated 3rd poorest country in the world in 2016) the pandemic hit the country hard and an estimated 40% of the population live below the poverty line.
The Dayewende Complex is a Christian run compound just outside the countries capitol Ouagadougou. The complex is run by Paster Gieta and his wife Patricia. There is a nursery, hospital, pre-school, secondary school & maternity ward, which are supported largely by charitable donations
The Logue family have been supporting the Complex since 2010, in a mixture of fundraising and also trips to Nurkina to provide an extra pair of hands and deepen our understanding of the needs, and how we can be most effective with our support.
Micheal, Hannah & Josie have all ran the marathon, alongside organising Fundraising Gala's with musical theatre cabarets put together by Sarah.
Hannah Logue & Neil both went out first in 2010, to deliver donations & to work on the complex. The day to day needs are simple. The family have gone out to be a pair of hands, mostly helping feeding and changing in the orphanage, painting & building; although Hannah (fluent in French) was able to also assist in schooling!
What all the family has taken from spending time with the community; is a profound faith & the capacity for joy that we can all open ourselves too.
We'd love to see you for some time to unwind, rest and restore.
We look forward to welcoming you soon
Eleanor and Neil
