THE STORY:

THE STORY

Some 2000+ children in Liberia have been orphaned by Ebola.

While some have been placed in shelters or found new families, others have been taken in by aunts, uncles - the loved ones of the deceased. In a community already wrestling with poverty, families strive to give these children new homes, but many lack the financial means it takes to provide care for these additional children. So in response to this need, Liberian aid worker, Garmai Sumo, has developed the Monrovia Orphans Initiative - a fund to help families who have taken in orphans care for them financially.

THE GOAL

Together with Tackle Ebola, RYOT's campaigning to raise $54,000 for 171 orphans of Ebola.

THE IMPACT

With $54,000 here's what we can do:

  • Provide primary school scholarships for 171 orphans
  • Provide academic supplies and uniforms for 171 orphans
  • Provide a year's worth of food for 171 orphans
  • Fund Garmai's salary for 1 year
