Without any immediate financial assistance, some 22 orphans in the Upper East region will be finding life tougher than their already not poor conditions.

This is because orphanage housing them is facing a dire financial situation and the operators are at their wits end as to how to make ends meet.

The Timataaba Orphanage located at the Gbeogo-Tongo village in the Talensi-Nabdam district had been relying on the benevolence of some Ghanaians but those donations have drastically reduced in recent times leaving operators to struggle to feed the kids.

According to Isaiah Dowonba Yindoubil, a local poultry farmer who runs the orphanage with his wife, Janet Naamyayah, the situation is so critical that they and the 22 kids in their care sometimes sleep without food.

Narrating how he decided to set up Timataaba even when he knew he had very little to cater for the kids, Yindoubil disclosed that being an orphan who went through hardship as a child, he did not want other orphaned children to go through.

He thus took it upon himself to take care of these children even though he had little funds and just four rooms for the kids.

Starting in 2010 with five kids, the orphanage has grown over the years and with the help of his wife whom he married in 2013, they have been trying with the help of others to cater for the kids.

A cursory look around the orphanage, one could easily identify that the rooms are in a bad state and the general living conditions are simply not good.

Also, only a few of the kids attend school as the meagre resources cannot cater for all them being enrolled in school.

Obviously, the kids at the Timataaba Orphanage will need a much better condition if they are really to get a fair chance at life.

With their minimal resources, Yindoubil and his wife could be said to have done what Napoleon could not and need some really good financial backing to help look after the kids.
