Rice For The Lockdown

Many people here in Sierra Leone are very worried about how they are going to feed their families during the planned three day lockdown of the country starting on 19th September 2014. A lot of people do not have the resources to save and store food for the lockdown.
I would like to try to help some of the families that we are working with by providing rice to tide them over for the lockdown period

Many are already struggling - because of the current restrictions in the country many people are unable to earn money, on top of that that cost of basic commodities has risen and continues to rise making it so difficult for people to provide enough food for their families. Now with news of the lockdown they just don't know how they are going to cope. We can ease this burden by providing rice for families who are struggling.

The cost to provide a 25KG bag of rice is approximately £13 (I have rounded this up in case of further price increases), but any amount would be welcome.
If you feel you are able to help by sending a donation towards the purchase of rice for the families we work with please contact me either on Facebook or Email me

Any excess money from the donations will be used towards purchasing rice for more families.

*IMPORTANT NOTE - 100% of donations sent will be used to purchase the rice, no money will be deducted for admin and the funds will not be used for any other purpose
