Pretty much the first ever photo I took in the village of kamakwie, Sierra Leone.
This was the birthplace of our first ever children’s village and is a place that sits deeply in my heart.
There are so many vulnerable children in a country that is without doubt the hardest place we work. Locked in poverty where the need is so so great creates a difficult frustrating and challenging environment to work in.
Sierra Leone we will see you soon and do what we can to lift you forward.

Sad and worrying news as Ebola has reached the town of Kasese (the main hub of our projects in Uganda.)
First Sierra Leone and now uganda! :(
let’s hope that it can be contained without it spreading further.
Stay safe people !!

Thanks Loretta.

At Orphfund we love it when kids here help our kids in Africa. Loretta is 11 years old and put her cello playing skills to good use by busking in Castlemaine on a couple of occasions, raising $161.55 in the process! She’s decided that she’d like the money to go to Sierra Leone and help our food growing efforts over there. So Inspiring!!!! Thank you!!!
