Latest update from Sierra Leone

St George Foundation and Coronavirus

3 April 2020

We understand that Sierra Leone recorded their first Coronavirus (COVID-19) case on 31 March.

The Government have decided to lockdown the country from 4th April for 2 weeks. It is widely expected that this may well be extended.

As a consequence, 11 staff have been made redundant, and all children and staff will remain at the Centre for the duration of the lockdown. Food, provisions and drugs have been obtained for this period.

For the next few months it is expected 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).

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
