Tropical weather and warm hearted people characterise this small country in West Africa. Sierra Leone is rich in minerals including gold, but a 10 year civil war, past government corruption, exploitation by richer countries, the Ebola crisis and worsening rainy seasons have all taken their toll on the nation, which currently has the shortest life expectancy anywhere in the world at just forty five and a half years.
Our work in Sierra Leone began in 2009 when we were asked to support a small Christian school and feeding programme. New Hope School now educates over 300 children from very poor families. New Hope Church meets at the school and has grown rapidly and reaches out with Jesus’s love to many surrounding communities. Also based at the school we support a nurse, a midwife and a tailoring training programme for local women. Our Emmanuel House children’s home provides a safe and loving home, mainly for children orphaned by Ebola.
