We're helping families access vital treatment
Thanks to the contributions of many committed donors, our team in northern Sierra Leone has been able to continue working with families to safeguard their health and wellbeing. I’m happy to share news of the vital work we're doing alongside rural communities.
Through our ‘Mama en Pikin Welbodi Project’ (meaning ‘Mother and child health project’ in Krio) we have been collaborating with health workers and volunteers to improve the health and nutrition of pregnant women and children under five in Bombali and Karene districts for almost a year now.
Our team has already developed close relationships with health workers and community leaders across these districts, who are helping to identify and support those with the greatest need.
Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have already supported over 3000 mothers and over 3000 children in hard-to-reach villages.
Our team in Bombali has been helping families like Martha and Wilhemina's (pictured above) to access vital treatment and support to improve their nutrition. We've already supported over 150 households to establish vegetable gardens and rear livestock, providing a sustainable source of additional food and income.

Once again, thank you for all your support. We look forward to updating you on more of the work we are doing alongside our community partners in Sierra Leone over the coming months!
