Summary

Ibrahim Bangora has been helping impoverished, vulnerable children in Makeni, Sierra Leone for the past 10 years. He has managed to provide them with food, schooling, and clothing. He has also been instrumental in repatriating local women who have been trafficked abroad. AAI recently rented a house to serve as an office and emergency shelter and started a sponsorship program to provide schooling for some of the children. More help is greatly needed for these deserving women and children!

Challenge

Nearly 4,000 Sierra Leonese children were orphaned due to the ebola virus that hit Sierra Leone in 2014. Ibrahim Bangura, began coordinating monthly food distributions in Makeni to provide a nutritious meal and fresh drinking water to these vulnerable children. This effort has grown to include schooling and clothing. He has also spearheaded support to many victims of human trafficking. He contacted AAI in 2019 for help & together we helped to recover 86 women! Yet more need our help!

Solution

AAI raised funding to rent a house for Ibrahim to serve as a base of operations for food distributions to at least 60 vulnerable orphaned children in the community and also as an emergency shelter for abused children or trafficking victims. However, more funding is needed to augment nutritious meals and provide ongoing support to run the house ($ for internet, electricity & water). Funds are needed to sponsor education for the children, support trafficked women & provide wellness training.

Long-Term Impact

A better life for many is the outcome we hope for. Funding will go towards paying bills for the office/emergency shelter, food for orphans and training staff. Sponsorship is needed so more children can get a proper education. Funds for medical services for the women returned from trafficking are essential. AAI is committed to helping and we need your support to continue assisting Ibrahim in his mission to feed, clothe, educate, and save vulnerable women and children in Makeni, Sierra Leone.
