Your Gifts at Work

We are excited to report wonderful progress!  Your gifts have enabled us to add a second level to the Bonnie Memorial Children's Home in Sierra Leone.  The original level is housing children who lost their parents to the Ebola crisis - we have been able to provide food, shelter, medical care, and education for these children.  The second level will house children who lost their parents in the mudslides last year.  

Thank you so much for your ongoing support!  Please consider joining with us to support one or more of these children on a regular basis - a regular gift of $35/month can support one orphan.

Distributions to Mudslide Victims in Sierra Leone

We want to thank EVERYONE who has been a part of donating to areas such as Regent, Sierra Leone where nearly 1,000 lives were lost in the mudslide. Your donations enabled us to help people like Issatu K. who is one of hundreds of people to have lost relatives and their homes in the mudslide. Both her son and nephew are missing, she said: “Everything is gone. We’ve lost everything – our house, everything. The mud came down with the water so fast and my son did not escape. We found him lying in the mud. He was just a boy. They took his body with the others to I don’t know where. God help Sierra Leone. What are we supposed to do now, with nothing?”

This is the tragedy upon tragedy Sierra Leone has faced.  Thanks to you, we have been able to donate food and other relief supplies to help heal their wounds. We so appreciate your support and your generosity - THANK YOU.

Move-in Day at the Ebola Orphanage!

On September 11, 2017, the first twenty orphaned children moved into the Bonnie Memorial Children's Home in Sierra Leone!  Thanks to you, we were able to finish construction on this multi-story home, build furniture such as benches and beds, and find houseparents to help care for the children.  The recent flooding and mudslides in the area amplified the need, and children orphaned from this new tragedy have joined the Ebola orphans at the home.  Thank you so much for your donations and your support - YOU provided hope in a tangible way for the children.  

We continue to raise monthly support for the childrens' food and shelter, and for additional furniture needs such as a large dining table at which the children can eat.  There are not enough words to say thank you for your support on this project - we truly appreciate your partnership which has allowed us to care for the littlest victims of the tragedies in Sierra Leone.
