Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The St George Foundation gained credibility and particular support from the public during the Ebola crisis which affected Sierra Leone and its surrounding territories in recent years (2014 to 2016)

During that extremely challenging time, the charity was identified as a great example of an organisation that had formulated action plans that worked successfully to prevent cross infection, and as a result these successes were used as case studies for other charities and NGO's to follow as they carried out their own work to fight this horrific disease.

While I am going on the adventure of a lifetime by sailing around the world with the Clipper Round the World 2017-18 race, I want this to be a stimulus to raise money for the St George Foundation.

Their primary work involves supporting homeless children or street children.  This often includes abandoned infants, referrals from social services and children whose families are unable to cope for whatever reason. Their emphasis is on ending the child’s time being homeless
and helping them to deal with their problems. Once the process has begun and they are settled, they help them on their journey to reunify them to a settled home with their relatives and ensure they are enrolled in a school for their continued education. This is facilitated via our residential home at Grafton.

On average the children live with the St George Foundation in the home for one academic year during which time they assist them to rehabilitate, adjust to schooling and work with their families to ensure a successful return.
