Join Mama Mayila and US volunteers Miss Katie, Aunty Dawn and Aunty Michaela distributing rice to the Moa Wharf kids just in time for Day of the African Child.
This month's event at Moa Wharf - one of the most marginalized communities in Sierra Leone - sees Mama Mayila distribute rice to each of the 57 children in our kinship fostering programme.
These children all lost their mums and dads to the Ebola pandemic or live with a disability living with relatives in one of the most marginalized slum communities in Sierra Leone with regular food support and help with school costs from our Foundation.
More than 2,000 citizens live here in one of the slum communities along the Freetown wharfs that were vulnerable to Ebola and which are now vulnerable to climate change with rising sea levels one of the reasons that Sierra Leone Is the third most vulnerable country to climate change impacts. Our visitors from the USA witness the environmental degradation this community suffers.
Our kinship fostering programme supports 57 children orphaned by Ebola or living with disabilities since the height of the Ebola crisis.
Resident Coordinator Mr Bangura take care of the paperwork, taking time to ensure the kids are being supported to go to school and being treated well at home.
Here you see the Hope team ascending the long steep steps from Moa Wharf after distributing rice in time for Day of the African Child.
