HMS students are partnering with the Sierra Leone Association of Ebola Survivors (SLAES) to raise funds for Sierra Leonean orphans who lost their parents to Ebola. These children want to go back to school but currently can't because they have no remaining relatives to provide financial support for their school fees. Some of the surviving children lost more than 20 relatives during the Ebola epidemic. Many are homeless.
$50 will cover the school fees and supplies to allow a child to go back to school.
Thank you so much for your consideration.
Who Feels It, Knows It!
