In many countries across the globe, there is a feeling that the pandemic is ending. Well, that’s just not the case across many countries in sub-Saharan Africa including our beloved Sierra Leone. According to the World Health Organization, Reuters and other organizations, cases are going up. There are also very few vaccines available in Sierra Leone.
It is a situation that causes great concern for A Brighter Tomorrow for Africa and its supporters and we are determined to keep our programmes going. One example to share is Ben Hirsch School. Ben Hirsch has managed to establish a secondary school and vocational school for disadvantaged children and orphans which means we are able to reach more children with nutrition during this challenging time.
The school feeding of the orphans has made them very attentive in learning. BTA and partners have not just given these children food but have helped them in their social behaviours which are changing their lives. There are ten teachers and four social workers in this new location who are providing the support to the children as we provide the food.
Thank you for your continued support and we will keep you apprised of the pandemic situation and the progress we will make by continuing to keep our children nourished as they deal with continuing challenges.
