Saffie's Business Forges Ahead - Inspite of The Ebola Crisis

YOUR donations helped Saffie launch a new business during the current Ebola crisis. 3 months ago with provided funds, she started to sell or retail charcoal. She buys bags of coals in bulk and then distributes this to customers in the Wellington community. Charcoal is a widely used cooking fuel - with a steady, on-going demand.  Typically all houses cook daily.

Thanks to this venture, Saffie has been able to take care of her family through this Ebola crisis. This opportunity has been a tremendous help to her and she plans to continue doing and even growing this business.

Our support is making a real difference and changing lives - one life at a time.  Saffie sends her sincere thanks and appreciation to you for your valued and faithful support.

Happy Saffie - thanks to your support

Sierra Leone Schools Open in March After Ebola Crisis

Fatmata is full of hope - all smiles

We so happy to report that schools in Sierra Leone will reopen in March after being closed for eight months due to the Ebola outbreak. Students have been off from school for nearly a year.

The reopening of schools is a sign that the tide is turning against the Ebola crisis. The World Health Organization recently reported that Ebola cases are rapidly decreasing. The number of new cases has declined steadily over the past 5 weeks.  The outbreak has been the worst on record, with Sierra Leone being the most affected. 

To ensure a safe environment, chlorinated water for disinfecting will be made available in schools. One of the first signs of having the virus is a high temperature. So, teachers have been trained to use thermometers to monitor student temperatures.

When school reopens, we need to start strong by providing scholarships, uniforms and school supplies for up to a hundred new children. About 40 of these children have been orphaned during this crisis.  Can you join us in providing the gift of education to deserving children - such as Fatmata (pictured)?  This is the best way to help the children recover from this crisis as they go back to school. 

Should you be interested in supporting a specific child and communicating with that child, please let us know and we will provide a few profiles of children looking for a scholarship. 

Thanks so much for YOUR support as we prepare for a strong and great school year!
