Did you make it a good one? There has been a lot of negative attention on our target communities here and abroad. The #GovernmentShutdown has left many with a sense of uncertainty about their future. We are still working to make sure all are safe, have their basic needs met, and have continued access to education.
Our Kpanga Krim fundraiser is underway to help students in Sierra Leone have the education they need to be successful in life.
The new cycle is a downer, but we can make a difference. Your donation helps children grow. It helps not only the children in Sierra Leone but the children right here in the United States.
Stay strong. Resist. Build community.
Wow! We made it through 2017 intact. It was a year of many ups and downs from a change in presidents to the devastating mudslides in Sierra Leone. Through it all, we have remained consistent in our mission – to provide education and assistance to the immigrant community in Houston and abroad in Sierra Leone.
In June, Judith was a part of a medical mission to Sierra Leone that successfully provided supplies to a local hospital. She was also invited to speak at the 2017 Youth Human Rights International Human Rights Summit in August.
2018 will be no different. Judith will be going on another medical mission this June and we are in the process of building a primary school in the Kpanga Krim chiefdom in Sierra Leone to aid children ages 5-8 in attending school.
We appreciated your support in 2017 and hope we can continue to count on your help to increase education and healthy living in our world.
Happy New Year! I can’t wait to see what this one will bring!
