It's Give Big Tuesday!

During this season of thankfulness, let us not forget the children and families of Sierra Leone! 

Here’s a glimpse into the lives of those we care for in Sierra Leone…

  • 1991-2002: A civil war occurred, taking the lives of over 50,000 men, women, and children.


  • 2014-2016: Ebola took the lives of 4,000 people.


  • 2017: A landslide took the lives of over 1,000 people.


  • 2020: COVID-19 caused economic growth to contract by -2%.


  • 2022: The war in Ukraine caused purchasing power to decrease, the cost of living to increase, and fuel prices to rise by 120%.

As of 2022, a majority of Sierra Leoneans live on $3.20 USD a day.

So, why are those we care for in Sierra Leone so happy?

As they say often in Sierra Leone, “It is by the grace of God!

Psalm 4:7, “You have given me greater joy than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.”

Have a blessed Thanksgiving season!
