Devastating Fire Hits Freetown Slum

27 March 2021

St George Foundation has been involved in emergency action to assist child victims of a devastating slum fire in Susan Bay - Freetown.
 
The fire occurred on the 25th March and on the 26th March making thousands of people homeless.
St George Foundation have opened an emergency shelter for local children who have lost everything. 
Over the next few days longer term arrangements will be made for them for the coming weeks.  This will give their parents the opportunity to sort themselves out and their children a safe place to stay for the coming weeks.
 
 
 

Recent donations - Thank you

2 February 2021

Two of our disabled children have just received brand new all terrain wheelchairs. These will make a huge difference to their quality of life as their current ones were almost falling to bits.

  

Many thanks to our friends around Hythe near Southampton and especially the two ladies that saw the need when they visited St George last year and came home with the inspiration to help these two children.

Also donated at the same time are football shirts. The kids always love these things.  Thank you guys!

Thank you too for James from Practical Tools who flew to Freetown and took these in his luggage and made the time while on his own trip to pass by St George Foundation to make the delivery in person.

Help these children today

St George Foundation does not receive funds from national campaigns or the UK Government to support its vital work transforming children's lives. 

To support each child costs the charity £5/day, which includes the provision of food, shelter, medical care and enrolment at a local school. However, to continue our work we need your help.

97% of your donation is spent on the actual project: achieved by very low UK overheads and no paid staff in the UK
