New Ebola cases in Sierra Leone have dropped dramatically over the past several months. In May, the country saw only four new cases and five deaths. Many of the country's twelve districts have gone three months with no new cases of Ebola. As a result, travel in and out of the country is starting to resume, and all of the schools have been reopened.
The work on the Ebola Children’s Home in Kondie Farm, Sierra Leone is going well .The first phase of the project includes construction of a retaining wall, which is almost completed. After the retaining wall is finished, the floors will be leveled and a concrete foundation will be poured.
We have attached a financial report which details the current funds received for this project through Global Giving, along with an itemized list of the expenditures so far. The project is on schedule for an October completion.
Thank you again for your generous support of this project! Through your contributions, you are making a difference in the lives of children orphaned by Ebola.
The need to care for and minister to children continues to grow by the day as the number of homeless and ebola-affected children in Kondie Farm increases. We do find hope in the fact that work is continuing slowly but steadily on the building site for the new orphanage.
The Contractors were finally able to remove from the building site a very large stone which took several weeks to break up by hand. The generous donations that we have already received will enable construction to continue, and our goal is to get as much of the building up as possible before the rainy season begins in June. Thank you again for your support!
