Our corporate supporter SMT Shipping has offered to MATCH ALL DONATIONS given by the end of the year, up to a total of $15,000.
With $30,000 we could get another 600 children secure in school for an entire year.
On Monday August 14, 2017, Sierra Leone was hit by devastating floods, triggering mudslides that left thousands dead and even more homeless. The communities affected, who live on the hill slopes on the edge of Freetown, are among the capital's poorest inhabitants. We have been working in and out of these communities since Street Child began operating in Freetown in 2009, and we know that those who have survived this tragedy are left with simply nothing. The capacity of the already stretched Sierra Leonean Government to help is very limited, and this is a time when urgent support is needed.
We have given out almost 100,000 emergency relief packs, but now the immediate crisis has passed, people need help restarting their businesses and getting their kids back into school. For a rare chance to literally double your impact, please do give now, and get 600 kids like Sam, Mohamed, and Isatu back into school before it's too late.
