Dear project supporters,

COVID-19 continues to disrupt our daily lives, but thanks to your support more protective masks are being distributed to students going back to school, which are set to reopen at the end of September.

Thanks to your support masks and soap have been distributed to students like Martha & Roseline, pictured here.   These girls expressed their gratitude for your support that is keeping them safe.

Martha enjoys reading and English and hopes to become a lawyer so she can help her community.  Roseline enjoys Government, English, History, and reading and she also hopes to become a lawyer to help her community.

We greatly appreciate your ongoing support that makes it possible to provide families in need in Freetown with healthy meals, masks, and hand sanitizer/soap.

Thank you for helping to meet this important practical need. We greatly appreciate your continued support in saving lives and stopping the spread of COVID-19 / coronavirus.  

Stay healthy, friends,
Amy and the Develop Africa Team

Dear project supporters,

While COVID-19 continues to disrupt our daily lives; we are all struggling to work out a new normal.  Because of this, there are ongoing needs to provide face masks, soap, and hand sanitizers.  It has also brought the need of providing nutritional meals to families who no longer have the ability to provide food for their families due to loss of jobs or income.

Thanks to your support masks and soap have been distributed to students like Elizabeth & Lucy, pictured here.   These girls expressed their gratitude for your support that is keeping them safe.

Families like Yealie, Alfred, Alusine, and Abdul's (pictured below) family received healthy meals.  This family is very grateful for the food they received.

Coronavirus: How fast is it spreading in Africa? - BBC News

The continent passed one million cases on 6 August, but the rate of increase in reported cases recently has slowed.

This is mainly driven by a decline in new cases in South Africa, which accounts for more than half of all cases reported so far on the continent.

From 30 July until 5 August, the total number of cases on the continent rose by 11%, so less than the 16% rise the week before.

It's worth stressing that some parts of the continent have seen relatively few cases, such as some areas of central and East Africa.

The Africa CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention) says that five countries account for more than 75% of all the reported cases on the continent.


We greatly appreciate your ongoing support that makes it possible to provide families in need in Freetown with healthy meals, masks, and hand sanitizer/soap.

Thank you for helping to meet this important practical need. We greatly appreciate your continued support in saving lives and stopping the spread of COVID-19 / coronavirus.

Distributing cloth masks to bike riders
Distributing cloth masks to bike riders

Dear project supporters,

Transportation service providers like taxi drivers and motorcycle taxis (Okadas) provide a valuable service – transporting hundreds of people each day. Each bike rider interacts with and is in close quarters with tens of people each day.

Because they are in close proximity to people every day, they and their passengers and are at risk of getting infected with or spreading the coronavirus.

In order to help reduce the risk of transmission through public transportation, Develop Africa on the 8th June 2020 distributed 1000 face masks to bike riders in the Lumley and Goderich communities in Freetown.

From the mask distribution photos and video, you can vividly see that most of the bike riders did not have on face masks. They were very thankful to Develop Africa for this kind gesture noting that the donation was timely.

Must-See Video: The video of the distribution of the masks aired on SLBC TV - public broadcasting TV on Monday, June 8th, 2020.

The beneficiaries were very grateful to receive the masks and expressed their deep appreciation. 

Your support helped make this possible.

Thank you for helping to meet this important practical need. Together we are helping to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19 / coronavirus.  

With deep appreciation,
Sylvester and the Develop Africa Team

Dear project supporters,

As you know, the use of face masks in public places like the markets, parks, and public transportation during the COVID-19 pandemic has been recommended by different health practitioners and governments. The World Health Organization and other public health organizations agree that face masks can help limit the spread of the COVID-19.   

Over the years, we have learned that many times that we must go the extra mile to provide empowering support.  It's essential that we help to provide protection to those who may not be able to afford to purchase masks. 

With this in mind, your support helped purchase supplies to have a local tailor, Josie, sew over 100 cloth masks.  These masks were distributed free to families in Freetown.

The beneficiaries were very grateful to receive the masks and expressed their deep appreciation.

Thank you for helping to meet this important practical need. Together we are helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 / coronavirus. Together we are winning. Together we are saving lives from sickness and possible death.

We will be sharing some more information in a couple of weeks about an additional distribution of cloth masks.

We warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. This is the best way to ensure an ongoing impact.

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this project. 

With deep appreciation,

Amy and the Develop Africa Team

Dear project supporters,

As we all know, regular handwashing is essential to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. 

Many communities, however, do not have the needed resources to enable this. 

With this in mind and thanks to your support, we provided 3 veronica buckets and liquid soap to the Girl Pikin for Betteh Girl’s Club at Ghana compound, Beach Road, Freetown. The compound houses over 500 people. These buckets are in great demand and will be very useful.

The distribution was done in partnership with the Centre for Transformational Leadership and Development, the organization that runs the club.

During the distribution, the beneficiaries were reminded to adhere to the safety and handwashing measures recommended by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation. 

The beneficiaries were very grateful to receive the supplies and expressed their appreciation.

Thank you for helping to meet this important practical need. Together we are helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 / coronavirus.

We warmly invite you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. This is the best way to ensure an ongoing impact.

Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this project. 

With deep appreciation
