IRVINE, CA — Orange County business Bird-B-Gone Inc. continues to improve the lives of some of the poorest children in Africa through its partnership with the nonprofit organization Children of the Nations (COTN), according to a press release.
Bird-B-Gone President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bruce Donoho has been a committed advocate of COTN since he heard the organization's founder, Chris Clark, speak at his church, Presbyterian Church of the Master, in 2008, the release stated.
According to the release, since then, Donoho has traveled to COTN's ministry site in Sierra Leone, West Africa, and funded numerous projects there, including a water pump, a new guesthouse, children’s dormitories, teachers' quarters and solar electricity panels for COTN's Children's Homes.
These projects have improved the health and education of the children COTN serves by providing them with clean water and electricity, and allowing more teachers, doctors and other volunteers to visit and provide care, the release noted.
