Situation

We have secured some land on the outskirts of the city where we will be constructing a home for orphans as well as training centres where they can learn valuable skills for the future. Many children have registered with us in Freetown and drop into our existing Safehouse to get some food and have a wash, but are rooms are full and we cannot care for them as much as we would like to. We desperately want to help these children move away from their daily struggles and by building a new home we can offer them a chance of a brighter future away from poverty. The project will cost in the region of £35000 to construct the home. 100% of all donations to Orphfund are spent direct on our projects.
