Please DONATE NOW to support survivors of the Regent/Freetown flooding and landslide

We're making an urgent appeal to our friends and donors to support the relief efforts in Regent/Freetown, Sierra Leone. The death toll from the massive mudslide is reaching 500, with perhaps another 600 still missing. 6 weeks of heavy rains have flooded the entire region, displacing 20,000 people including 5,000 children. There is a great risk of another massive mudslide that could affect an additional 70 acres of mountainside communities.

Our goal is to raise $8,000 to $10,000 to assemble a large shipment of goods to support the community.

We're collecting more clothing, medical and other supplies for the relief effort, but what we need most are cash donations to cover the cost of shipping and port fees. Bobby Smith's plan is to receive the container(s) in Sierra Leone and distribute these goods personally to the families affected by this tragedy.

Bobby Smith visited the Regent area of Freetown on one of his recent visits, talking with students and teachers at a few different schools in the area. Some of the school kids in these photos are dead or missing. All of the children and teachers will be affected by this tragedy playing out right now and for months to follow. Transportation of food and supplies is very limited. Access to clean water will be particularly difficult throughout the Freetown area. The cost of food has spiked considerably and families can't afford even basics like rice and oil.

The challenges in Regent will continue for many months to come. Please DONATE TODAY to help us pay to ship the goods we've collected. It takes 4-5 weeks from the ship date for the container to arrive, so please DONATE NOW!

 
 

Hematology & Immunoassay Machines
Successfully delivered and operational

 

The seven hematology and immunoassay machines donated by Johns Hopkins Medicine were delivered and installed in a large clinic in Sierra Leone. To our knowledge, there are no machines of this kind in Sierra Leone as all blood labwork must be sent out of the country for processing. Each of these machines can process over 500 blood samples a day and will have a huge impact on healthcare in Sierra Leone.

Through the contributions of a few generous donors, these machines were shipped, along with other specialized medical devices, equipment and supplies. We have collected such a monumental amount of equipment that, with the right partnerships, we could build the best equipped hospital in the country. A reasonable goal that we are working to achieve with the right donors and partnerships. In the meantime, please help us continue to send donated medical supplies and equipment by DONATING NOW to help cover the cost of shipping these lifesaving medical goods.

 
 

WATCH

The donation of this life-saving medical equipment will make a huge impact for the people of Sierra Leone. 

Listen as Bobby explains the importance of these machines and why we need your support to get them to Sierra Leone.

St. Anthony's School Library (2013) & New COMPUTER LAB (2016)

In early 2013, we officially unveiled the Hope for Lives Library at St. Anthony's Primary School in Freetown. In 2016, we completed the new computer lab in a newly constructed building next to the library.  The computer lab features 15-20 computers with internet access. The lab is available to the 3,000 students of St. Anthony's School on a rotation. The lab will be sustainable by allowing public access at certain times as well as printing and other services, not the least of which is the new ICE CREAM machine.
