3 Day Lockdown

It seems that the rumours are true for once and there will be another 3 day lockdown in Sierra Leone from 27th to 29th March.

It's not too much of a hassle for me - I'll just stock up on food and use it as a chance to get some jobs done in the house, catch up on admin work and finally get started on the vegetable garden I've been planning.
 
For others that don't have the luxury of being able to fill their cupboards in preparation for the lockdown, for people who live day to day, it won't be easy. Most people I know buy their food daily - what they earn in a day is used to buy food that is cooked for that evening's meal........what are they going to do when they aren't allowed to leave their homes for three days? How will they feed their families?
 
We will be providing rice for as many of our families and blind beggars as possible to help them through the lockdown.
 
If you feel you would like to help toward the rice distribution a donation can be made using the 'donate' button at the top of this blog - for other ways to make a donation please email me.

For £13 we can provide a 25kg bag of rice to a family. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
