Coronavirus Update – 23rd June 2020 

These are tough times and even tougher for the poor, the Coronavirus crisis will not impact everyone equally.
Poor people suffer every day and they will suffer more because of the pandemic.

100 sets of hand washing kits for Regent Village were distributed during May & June 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis

Message from Action4schools Founder Jimmy Bruzon
When an 8 year old child is as creative and imaginative as Jake and writes an illustrated book on coronavirus it is something very special,,,,when he then gives the book added purpose and chooses to use his gift to help children in need that is humbling and simply awesome and we should all take a moment to reflect on what Jake is going to achieve.. thank you for supporting Jake in his journey, he is already changing lives and making a difference. Thank you Jake for teaching us a powerful lesson in humanity through action !!!

UN World Water Day – 22nd March 2020
https://www.worldwaterday.org/

We have celebrated UN World Water and have ensured schools that we support in Regent Village are ready for the preventative measures reference the potential COVID-19 outbreak in Sierra Leone by refilling milla water tanks. These schools recently ran out of clean water because of ongoing road works that have meant a cut in the supply from the local water company GUMA.

The cost of  buying 10,000 litres is around £38 and we encourage everyone in Gibraltar to call 8601 and donate towards the supply of clean, safe water to these schools that are in desperate need every day of the year and even more now with the COVID-19 threat.

Please Call 8601 and help us fund more water bowsers for more schools !  Water saves lives !

SECONDARY SCHOOL PROJECT – Update March 2020

The Senior Secondary School project in Regent Village has been put on hold due to the COVID-19, we will continue to monitor how the world-wide outbreak develops and pray that it will not impact Sierra Leone or other African countries that do not have the necessary medical resources to contain a large scale outbreak, we hope to start the school building project in 2020 !

TRUSTEES PLEDGE

We spend every penny raised on direct support to provide water wells, build schools, provide medical care and bring hope to poor communities.

Since the charity was born we have travelled to Sierra Leone once (2012), having modern technology and strong partnerships means we do not need to travel to the projects.

100% of the money raised is used for direct assistance to the most needy.

WATER WELL APPEAL 8601 -£2500
