In his statement, the Deputy Director of the Office of Diaspora Affairs (ODA), Mr Sorie Tholley briefly explained the mandate of the ODA, adding that his institution has been working relentlessly to coordinate diaspora organizations towards the development of the country.
“One of the organizations we are working with is H4EO, this organization has been working very hard to complement government effort towards the presidential Recovery Priorities’ and we have been working with them assiduously in order to ensure that they were given a piece of land at John Obey by the Government of Sierra Leone to build a Children’s Village."
WORKING TOGETHER FOR THE BETTERMENT OF SIERRA LEONE
Mr Alfred Sima Kargbo, newly appointed Chairman of the board of Directors for Hope 4 Ebola Orphans has worked in child protection services for over seventeen years now, but among the many child protection organizations he had worked with, H4EO he added really stood out and its Co- Founder and Director, Mayila Yansaneh has been very impressive in providing the necessary support to vulnerable children in the country.
SCHOOL & TUITION FEES 2 EDUCATE THE FUTURE

‘’These Children are the future leaders of this country and they must be given the required support especially in the area of education, so that when they grow up they will be able to support themselves and others’’

Speaking after the event Mama Mayila said:
"My team carried out education outreach over the summer and it makes me very happy that every vulnerable child living in this neglected community is in school.
I cannot thank the guys at the ODA enough for their tireless work supporting diaspora led organizations, like Hope 4 Ebola Orphans, to make a real difference for the betterment of Sierra Leone."
