SLWT - Joining the fight against Ebola
We are appealing for your help to raise funds for SLWT (Sierra Leone War Trust for Children) because of the Ebola Outbreak in Sierra Leone
We intervene in education, health & welfare to improve the lives of youths and children
Charity Registration No. 1085628
Thankfully the ebola epidemic is now coming under control and the rate of transmission in Sierra Leone is on a downward trend. However, in its wake, the ebola outbreak has left a devastating legacy as thousands of children have become orphans, having lost their parents to the deadly disease. SLWT is catering for the food and health monitoring needs of Ebola orphans under the age of five who are in the care of guardians and caretakers unable to cover the additional cost to the household but who are willing to provide a new home for these children.
With the re-opening of schools in Sierra Leone, SLWT will resume its work providing educational scholarships and mentoring support to school girls who as a group have been very badly affected by the outbreak with there being a risk of many of these girls not returning to school.
Your donations at the start of the outbreak enabled SLWT to join the fight against Ebola by supporting doctors, urban and rural communities and "okada riders". Please now help us reach our fundraising target so that through our "Hope For Tomorrow" project we can positively contribute to the lives of orphaned children who have endured terrible suffering because of the Ebola outbreak.
Thanks for your support.
