Nabbi no longer has to crawl to school
Good news for little Nabbi in Shenge, a coastal village in Sierra Leone. Last week he was crawling as he’s done since birth. Now he has his tricycle which he will soon learn to ride. And soon he will go to school. Please help us to do more by donating.

Alie Turay wins an award as he completes school studies and qualifies for university, thanks to support from SLEDT and his own hard work.
Mariama
Mariama came top of her class in primary school but poverty stopped her going to secondary school. We are supporting her with textbooks, a solar light for evening study and everything she needs to succeed.
Sulaiman
Sulaiman is one of our team of eight wonderful young volunteers. Here he is heading by bicycle to remote villages on Shabro island, searching for children who cannot walk.
Adekalie - Before and After
Adekalie had polio when he was three and has been crawling throughout his childhood. He isn't strong enough yet for a 'mobility cart' so we have given him a wheelchair.
Alpha - Before and After
Alpha lost his leg in a motorbike accident when he was 16. He was depressed when we found him in a fishing village. Now he has a new leg, a positive attitude and has started a small trading business.
Alfa - Before and After
Alfa gets his 'mobility cart' and no longer has to crawl.
Fatmata - Before and After
Fatmata had polio when she was very young. We found her crawling, Now she can go to school every day and enjoy independence and dignity.

Objectives for 2021:

  • We will pay all the educational costs for 24 high achievers in primary schools from poor homes so that they can benefit from secondary education.
  • We will provide mobility equipment for 25 disabled children and young people so that they can get to school and around their neighbourhoods without crawling or being carried.
  • We will support care and training costs at Mustard Seed children’s home in Moyamba so that 9 severely disabled children get the support they need.
  • We will pay for one blind child to get the benefit of residential education including learning to read braille.
  • We will respond flexibly and quickly to one-off requests for help. We expect to get several requests for emergency medical treatment.
  • We will do all this with your donations of about £20,000.
