400 Orphans to Receive Brand New Shoes from Miss Africa USA’s Queen Ghyslaine (Gigi) Tchouaga this week in Cameroon.

Today Cameroonians all over the world and their friends celebrate the 53rd Independence Day of the Nation. A time for all Cameroonians to reflect on their citizenship of such a great nation and also a time to reflect and ask the question ‘What Can I or have I done for my country?

It is in this light that the reigning Miss Africa USA Ghyslaine (Gigi) Tchouaga, a native of Cameroon has decided to join millions of Cameroonians back home to celebrate the 53rd Independence Day. Queen Gigi will not only join dignitaries at home to celebrate the National day, she will be giving back to the villages that contributed to raise her up.

Over the next 7 days the Queen will make her way to Western Region of Cameroon, in the Bafang area where she will launch her own Foundation to fight poverty and hunger. She will distribute 400 pairs of shoes to Orphans and under privileged men and women who otherwise walk on bare feet everyday of their lives.

She will visit several orphanages, schools and educational institutions to meet the children who have no shoes to walk to school. The Shoes were donated by Americans and will benefit Cameroonian children, what a great way to spread the American spirit of giving back and showing love.

Queen Gigi will also visit local hospitals, children’s clinics and health centers to assess needs and donate medical supplies supported by the Cameroon Medical Mission and Medshare International.

While in Cameroon she will spend time with school children to talk about the importance of education, especially with young girls. She is expected to round up her visit in 10 days and return back to Maryland, where she resides and attends University of Maryland, studying towards a degree in Public Health.

Please join the Miss Africa USA Pageant in wishing Queen Ghyslaine a successful charity mission trip. She will share her experience on Pageant Night before handing over her Crown to the Next Queen on June 29 2013 at the Fillmore Theater, Silver Spring, MD. Tickets can be purchased online
