Challenge

They were living with their uncle called James in Totota who an Ebola survival is also. Mary at the age of 15 left his uncle home to an unknown place, Martha also died in 2016 by a snake bite, Junior currently survives with his bother Jonah and Tina, they are attend the St. Martin Catholic High School. We are also support two of James children Peter and Princess at the Lutheran High School. I got to know Junior's story through Christiana an America who read Junior story from the New York Times.

Solution

Donations will help aid organizations to support these orphaned children to have a future and brings Junior educational dream to life. As Christiana wrote to me, "Thank you for the wonderful work you are doing as part of VAAFD. I found your organization recently after reading an article by the New York Times reporter, Sheri Fink, about the Ebola outbreak, http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/10/world/africa/the-capricious-hand-of-ebola-one-boy-survives-as-others-die.html?_r=0. Junior 8 years old.

Long-Term Impact

Our continued efforts in human development, protection, Junior hopes one day to attend school. I have been in touch with the reporter, Ms. Fink, about the possibility of funding Junior's schooling. Junior's parents both died of Ebola, and he now lives with his aunt and uncle in the village of Knuckles Farm near Suakoko, LIberia. I am wondering if you have any advice about how I might support Junior's schooling.
