As the Ebola crisis continues to escalate, we here at SfS continue to be in close contact with our team on the ground in Sierra Leone. To date, there are no reported cases in any of the villages where we work. Thanks to our recent appeal, we have raised about $3000 which is being used for health education and hygiene and sanitation purposes in these vulnerable communities. In addition, we have sent funds for 40 bags of rice for distribution to our student and teacher families and extra stipends for our team in Sierra Leone to offset the skyrocketing prices. If you care to donate to our efforts please know that 100% of your contribution will be used for these purposes. Please join us in wishing peace, rice and good health to all in Sierra Leone.
