EBOLA

An update from Jane:

My dear friends and people of God. I thank God. So far, with what is happening in our country, there is still life. Looking up to God for his divine protection over us. Some of the challenges the school is presently faced with:

  • All work stopped for now
  • no school
  • teachers and staff of the school undergoing a lot of problems in taking care of their families
  • 13 teachers and nine auxiliary staff, no funds to pay auxiliary staff and run the school.
  • Everything is at standstill.
  • The rest of the boarding home girls went for vacation apart from the nine girls from Kailahun district.
  • The remaining 300 pupils are in Moyamba.
  • Some have lost their families through ebola. Moyamba district has been one of the greatly affected districts in the country that has made the govt. isolate Moyamba from other districts. No vehicle enters or lives the district.

    An Update since recieveing the update from Jane:

    Jane sounds good. She said that she just received some money on Ocotber 18th that was sent from us (our church) and purchased medicine and things that the 9 girls needed. She said that they are happy girls, but she can not get in contact with any family of the girls and does not know if they are still alive.

    She sends a special hello to Becky Hartranft, little Jessica, and she sends her hello and greetings to everyone.

    She was in the village of Lungi when she called and she said that she gave money or purchased things for that school / people also.

    Pictures are from Jane in the distribution of food & money!
