So, it was no surprise when we recently received a report from our friends in Sierra Leone letting us know what new initiatives they are taking on to serve the vulnerable in their community.

In the midst of the global health crisis, churches, schools and other institutions have had to close. People have lost their jobs and the entire world has been grounded to a socio-economic slowdown, and in some cases, an abrupt halt. The economic impact in the already impoverished country of Sierra Leone is becoming more burdensome from day-to-day. However, leaders in Sierra Leone recognized an opportunity to serve those in need and shifted their leadership efforts to join the fight against this pandemic.

The entire package, worth about $1,000 USD, was distributed to the aged, widows and economically challenged in the community.

These amazing volunteers went from house to house giving packages of food, including rice, onions, cooking oil, tomato paste, salt, Maggi seasoning cubes and a bundle of pure water.

The recipients expressed delight in their gesture of generosity and care. They thanked the team and hope that other organizations follow in their footsteps to serve the vulnerable, no matter their religious background.
