Freetown day 2 – donation day

Hi!

I hope you liked my post yesterday and that it gave you a better insight of the work we are doing here in Sierra Leone 🙂

Yesterday we did our first donation for 50 children in Culvort which is the area that got affected by the flooding. Our aim was to target children in school-age and supply them with school related things that they have lost because of the flooding. When Crespo was in Sierra Leone a week ago he did two donations as well and in those donations, we supplied people with basic needs such as cloths, water, soap and toiletries. For the donation yesterday, we identified 50 children in Culvort and invited them to the donation. There were many more children that came and wanted to take part of the donation as well and it was so hard to have to say no to all those children. The children that took part of the donation got a schoolbag filled with books, pens, pencils, eraser, ruler and shoes. We also gave them an envelope containing a small amount of money so they could go and buy a new school uniform. Since the children is going to different schools they are wearing different uniforms so we thought it was better to give them money to buy their own uniform.

Today we will have another donation in Regent which is the area that got affected by the mudslide. We will go to the center I wrote about yesterday that the ministry of health and sanitation have set up together with UNICEF for the people that got their homes destroyed by the mudslide. As you could see on the pictures I put up yesterday, all houses in Regent is destroyed including their personal belongings. We will do the same kind of donation as in Culvort, targeting 50 children in school age. I’ll write a post about today’s donation later today or tomorrow.

I would also like to say a BIG thank you to all of you who is donating to us and is making it possible for us to do this for the people in Sierra Leone.
