We rescue street children in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

St George Foundation provides care, education, and a home.

Latest update from Sierra Leone

St George Foundation and Coronavirus

19 June 2020

Sierra Leone has continued to experience lockdown and curfews. Fortunately, only 53 deaths from Covid-19 have been recorded in the country to date.

As a consequence of lockdown, and in order to keep costs to a minimum, 11 staff were made redundant at the end of March. The usual annual tracing and reunification of rescued children is now underway with a view to placing the 2019/20 children back in the community, with families.

It continues to be a challenge for St George Foundation to be able to bring in enough income to meet the costs (essentially just salaries, food and provisions), while fund raising activities are curtailed.

Help these children today

The 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
