It is our aim to help vulnerable children living in unthinkable conditions, to give them hope, a lifeline, and a chance to experience the basic standards that we take for granted, such as food, clean water and an education. Your support helps us to do that! So far we have been able to sponsor 9 children!
OUR CURRENT SPONSOR CHILD
It is our pleasure to introduce you to 6 year old Mattu who we are now able to sponsor due to your support. Mattu is from Sierra Leone which is one of the world’s poorest countries. Tragically, 1 in 6 children die in Sierra Leone before their 5th birthday.

ANNUAL PROGRESS REPORT FOR MATTU
Mattu (Full name Jabbie Lucinda) is now 7 years old. She has, thankfully, been in good health this year, receiving medical supplies from Worldvision, enabled by our sponsorship. This last academic year, Mattu was in Pre-school and her best friend is called Jane. At home she helps with babysitting and she most enjoys colouring. Because of our sponsorship, Mattu and her family received clean water and educational materials.
As well as the direct help to Mattu and her family, the community are helped as a whole and the children, staff and community have given thanks for ''your immense contributions and support''. The contributions and support facilitated 2 apartments in the health care centre and needed medicines, to enhance the protection of children from infectious disease, injury and to increase access to essential health services. Rain water is now being harvested, improving sanitation and hygiene. The education project, among their many achievements, was able to increase access to basic primary education, raise awareness on child protection and help provide educational supplies and materials. To address the well being of children and improve overall health, a 3 year programme of Women's empowerment interventions has been set up. To enhance and sustain a parent's ability to pay for their child's needs, women were given seeds and gardening tools to establish vegetable gardens, to allow them to sell their fresh produce.
The difference sponsorships have made to the lives of these children, families and communities as just amazing! On behalf of them, and us, thank you! Without your support, this wouldn't have been possible.
