Thankfully, construction has been allowed to continue on in the midst of the COVID-19 changes taking place and the arches for the third floor of Bonnie Memorial Children's Home went up at the end of May! The supplies for the roof have also been purchased to complete the top of the 3rd level.
$1900 - Roof Materials
$1600 - Timber and Nails
$250 - Labor
Construction in Sierra Leone is much slower paced than what we see here in the US because they have no machinery or pre-made bricks. They have been building molds and mixing cement to create the blocks and pillars you see. Even as we are nearing the end of the building process we are unsure of exactly how much time the workers will need to finish. It will likely be over a month. The children are excited for their new space as you can imagine!
