Thanks Paul G Allen Foundation and Global Giving Donors For Health Supplies

Here is a quick update and thank YOU vdeo that we just received last night.  

A week ago in partnership with Door of Hope, we distributed soap and Dettol disinfectant to the Wellington Community in Freetown.  Christina, on behalf of Door of Hope, extends her profound appreciation to Global Giving and Develop Africa for providing health supplies – soap and Dettol disinfectant.  Special thanks also goes to the Paul G. Allen Foundation for a matching grant that made this possible.  

Christiana also appeals for your support towards provision of basic food items for the upcoming 3-day lock down. The Sierra Leonean government has ordered people to stay inside their homes for 3 days from the 19th to the 21st September to help curb the spread of Ebola. Many Sierra Leoneans live on a day-to-day basis and 3 days will be a challenge. 

We are embarking on a food distribution program in the Wellington community where we will be bagging and distributing rice, cooking oil, tomatoes, onions, Maggi (spices) and a little cash to buy fish. This will be primarily to people who survive on daily sales – petty traders, the unemployed and aged people in the community.

We welcome your support towards this venture that will make the difference between food on the table and starvation.  Your donation of $10 will provide food supplies for 1 family during this period. Thanks for your support.
