People Projects

We work with people projects. Here are a few:

P9 Foundation works to help fund urgent medical care, help fund clothing, fund education, help fund school supplies, help fund food and help fund housing.

John in Ghana

John lives in a poor neighborhood in Accra, Ghana. He is a songwriter, musician, singer, and producer. He also works to promote new talent and support and encourage new talent.

John also does what he can to help those worse off than himself. People come to him in desperate need- ill, homeless, hungry- and he always tries to take care of them.

This is especially challenging for him because John himself is very poor and his health is not good. But he constantly works for others, even when he has to go without.

John's goal is to expand his production company with the equipment needed to make videos and high quality recordings. He seeks to benefit not only himself but also others who have musical and performing talent but simply have no way to reach out to the public.
Also John would like to do more to help the homeless children- to provide them with food, a safe place to stay and an education so that they will not only survive but also have a future to look forward to.


Anabel is a little girl living in Ghana. She was abandoned by her mother when she was three years old. Some homeless children found her and brought her to John, who arranged for her to stay in a private children's care center. We have been paying her monthly fees since then so that she is safe and has a place to stay.


Anabel's mother passed away not long after she abandoned her. Her last words were to ask that someone continue to care for Anabel and we will do that for as long as we are able. She started to attend the private school associated with the center last year. She has had her share of illnesses, including a bout of the measles last year, but so
far she is making it okay.


Last month Anabel celebrated her fifth birthday with a small party attended by her classmates and friends. In the past two years we have watched her grow from a timid toddler to a self-assured little girl. We are working to assure that she will have a future.



Gofred is a five year old boy who was found alone and homeless on the beach in Accra, Ghana. He has no mother. His father had left for a few days of work in a neighboring country and he hadn't returned. Gofred was also ill, suffering from an internal infection. John took in Gofred in to stay with him and arranged for him to receive the medical treatment he needed. John then cared for the boy until his father finally returned, some days later. The father then left with the little boy to go back to the village where they had originally lived, in the interior of Ghana.The father recently reached out to John, telling him that the child was ill and asking for help. Though short on funds himself, John made the trip to see Gofred
and talked with the little boy's doctor to arrange for his care. Among other
things, John bought mosquito netting for the little boy's bed to protect him from disease-carrying mosquitoes. He also brought some toys to share with Gofred and the other children there.


Because he had very little money to start with, John had difficulty purchasing the ticket to get back home to Accra. He wound up having to sell his phone to raise the necessary money. He has only very recently been able to replace the phone and recover from the expenses of the trip.


Gofred still needs some medicines but at least he has received the basic care he needed.


Alan is a young man struggling to survive in very difficult circumstances. He works as a day laborer and can only buy food on those lucky days when he is able to find a job. Often he is forced to sleep outdoors, wherever he can. His life is very hard.

Alan's dream is to be a professional photographer of nature and landscapes. The old, outdated cellphone Alan has been using is unable

to take photographs. But now he has a better phone and he has started to see what he can do as a photographer. He is only beginning and he is just learning how to choose good targets, how to organize shots, and such basic skills as arranging light and shadow, lines and colors.
We are doing what we can to help Alan to survive and to fulfill his dreams.

Favour and Baby Donald

Favour is an eighteen year old Nigerian girl living in Ghana. She came to John when she was seventeen; pregnant and alone and broke. She had been living on the beach, sleeping under a table. John managed to arrange for a place for her to stay and when the baby was due he
got her into a local hospital, where she gave birth to a little baby boy.
Her baby had some health problems and spent his first few days in an incubator. The doctors were concerned about his health and suggested that Favour bring the child in for checkups every three weeks. There simply was not enough money to be able to do that but John did what he could to help both Favour and the baby survive.

Tradition says that a baby be given a naming ceremony shortly after birth as a way to give the child their own identity and make them an accepted member of the community, no longer just someone's baby but a real person in their own right. It took awhile, but the baby finally had his ceremony, where he was named Donald.

Favour's goal is to join John in his work in his music production company but of course with a very small child right now her major concern is taking care of the little one.

Haddi, Zenabu, and their baby Vicky

Haddi and his wife Zenabu live in Ghana with their little baby girl Vicky. They first came to John in November of 2022. Zenabu was expecting and she was having a very difficult pregnancy. As they put it to John, they feared that the child was not sleeping well. Concerned for the health of both Zenabu and the child in her womb, they asked John for help.
Over the next few months John managed to get Zenabu the medical care she needed. It was a very stressful, difficult time and more than once it seemed that Zenabu herself was about to die. But finally, in January of 2023, she gave birth to a little baby girl. In her official naming ceremony some time later she was given the name Vicky. This was the beginning of John's friendship with Haddi and Zenabu, which has continued to this day. Haddi and Zenabu are extremely poor, even by the standards of the neighborhood where they live, and John has given what help he can.

There is never enough money to go around and he has been very limited in what he can do but for the sake of the little girl he has tried to do his best for them. Haddi's dream is to sell fruit juices and some simple foods but for that they need a refrigerator to keep the products they want to sell fresh. So far that is just a goal but they don't want to just sit and be a burden.


They are determined to do what they can to be productive and useful members of society and to care for their child.
