EBOLA CRISIS!

Louisa and the children are in a desperate need for help
Any amount will help! God bless you!

Prices for food, medicines, and fuel are skyrocketing as the country moves deeper into isolation and quarantine. Goods are not coming into the country because airlines and ships are refusing to land or make port in Sierra Leone. One third of the population is under quarantine, virtually stopping any buying and selling. Public transportation is grinding to a halt as it is spreading the disease.

Louisa was scheduled to come to the USA this fall to beg for funds for her children. She decided at the end of August not to come because of the crisis. This puts us at a loss because her visits are the major way money is raised for the children.

While it is good that she remained with her children, our bank account is close to zero while the cost of food in Sierra Leone is going up. God has been with this home through many trials. Through your generosity and prayers, we will get through this too.

VEHICLE NEEDED!

Louisa and the children need a vehicle. Right now they are depending on public transportation to get to the market or to the doctor. With the ebola crisis, this is not safe. Even when the crisis ends, public transportation is expensive and not always available or reliable. Louisa needs a car to transport the eggs to market, pick up chicken feeds, take children to the doctor or hospital, and go to market to get food and necessary items.

Can you help buy a vehicle for the home?

EDUCATION

There is no free education in Sierra Leone. Whether a child attends a government or private school, all must pay tuition and book fees, have a required uniform and black shoes. Depending on the grade the child is attending, the cost is approximately $300- $500 per year per child, with the older children having the higher tuition costs. When one thinks about the cost of education in the United States, even for children attending public schools (book fees, school supplies, backpacks, clothing and shoes), the cost in Sierra Leone is extremely small in comparison. But Louisa has 35 children attending school. If the cost is an average of $400 per child, that amounts to a great deal! Louisa also tries to help other poor children in the neighborhood who live with parents who can’t afford to send their child to school.

Can you help send one of the children to school? Any amount will help!

CHICKEN FARM

Help with the chicken farm to support the home!

It is important that the home have some sort of self-sufficiency. Louisa would like to raise chickens, both to sell and to provide food for the children. While it is a major investment, it will bring much needed income for the home and employment for the community. The children, as they graduate from school will be able to work at the farm. Thanks to you (and Reggie) we have received the money needed to develop the land and for start-up! We are now in need of chickens and feed.

Can you help bring this dream to reality? Donate a chicken today!
