Making a donation

We would appreciate any support you could offer. Please use this link to make a direct donation to the Trust online.

Gifts in kind

Our projects have a permanent need for equipment that can be used in education, everything from text books to laptops. If you or your organisation have old laptops to spare they are particularly valuable. It's not so expensive to ship in bulk, so please do get in touch if you have anything that you think might be useful and we will attempt to link you with one of our friends in Sierra Leone. Health equipment, although more specialised, is also highly prized — anything from dental chairs to ambulances! Here is a list of items we are currently collecting.

Sponsoring a child

We are currently looking for supporters who would be prepared to sponsor a child at Mercy Children’s Orphanage. This would involve financial commitment of £30 per month which we would transfer to Mercy Children’s Orphanage to cover the child’s schooling and living expenses. We would also like to facilitate letter writing between sponsors and ‘their’ child.

We are also looking for individuals who could commit to sponsoring a child to go to school in the village of Adonkia. The school fees would work out at £10 per month per child.

If you would be interested in sponsoring a child or would like more information, please contact us by any of the means listed. We would be delighted to hear from you.
