Nominee's Bio: Joelene after working some few years went out one night to an All-night service. She saw many children living on the corners of the streets. A few days later She was invited to dinner with her sister at the home of a family friend. Nothing could have prepared us for what they were to encounter there. When we arrived, more than a hundred beautiful, hungry, smiling, parentless children greeted us. Our host, Damidas Mensah, had taken in an orphaned child nearly two decades before; over the years he had continued to take in children until his “family” numbered more than one hundred.
