The next two pallets fly tonight and will be on the ground in Makeni later this week. We are waiting to hear the next set of priorities from Sierra Leone, and will share these as the news arrives. Who would have thought that such small gifts from us can make such a difference to people, please keep supporting our efforts! Read More

  • Update from Makeni

    Update from Makeni

    17th October 2014

    May we start by expressing our amazement at the generosity that we have been reading about from so many people. It must be hard for people to understand how slow the processing of goods into the country is, but it has greatly improved from when we used to wait for months before they had been cleared through customs. I hope this will give you courage that your generous donations will get to us soon as Suffian our clearing agent has a lot of experience in this field and is confident that he will be able to get them to us very soon.

Two further tries from very poor tackling meant a strong position had been all but blown by half-time. Read More
