Project: "Help Orphan & disadvantaged kids in Sierra Leone"


Help kids is a project designed to help orphans and other underprivileged kids and their families with food, clothing, school materials, school fees, medical expenses and other needed supports. Many children have lost their parents or guradians during the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone. The United Kingdom Charity "Street Child" reported that more than 12, 000 children have become orphans by the Ebola virus. These orphans and other poor children are faced with enormous challenges, including:
  • No parent to look after them. Theses kids are left to wander on the streets, beg or steal food and other items.
  • Living in the poorest communities with limited or no access to supports.
  • Lack of shelter, food (hungry), shoe, and clothing
  • Unable to access schooling due to inability to pay school fees, buy uniforms, bags, books, stationary, and school materials, long distance to the nearest school, and other related issues.
  • Lack of access to health care
  • Some kids are being forced to sell items on the streets or engage in sex work or crime to earn money for food and other needs.
These kids need your support. A small donation will make a big difference in their lives.
How you can help these kids:
  • You can donate money
  • You can donate items, including: clothing, school materials, computers, lap tops, and other items.
  • You can help raise fund, for example, through your family, friends, neighbours, businesses, organizations, and other ways.
With your support, a child will be able to go to school and receive nutritious food, educational materials, health and other needed supports.
