October 2020: Necessary renovation work carried out
During the closure due to the Corona pandemic, the association facilitated urgently needed renovation work on the school building. In addition to classroom renovations, meal assistance was arranged for special needs students and their families during the spring 2020 closure.
March 2020: Temporary school closure
In the course of the relief measures against the Corona epidemic initiated by the association, the sewing machines donated last year were used to sew masks. As a result, over 2000 masks have already been distributed to community members and school children. The first half of the school year was successfully completed with an average of 520 students.
January 2019: Fund initiative to finance the attendance of a Secondary School
Since 2014 we have been supporting the school on a monthly basis to enable the neediest children to continue attending school: We ensure the distribution of food, clothing and school supplies, as well as regular medical check-ups for the neediest children. The school received an award in the summer of 2017 and was upgraded to Category A by the National Board of Education. In 2018, about 500 students attended the school and benefited from the facility. But further education must also be thought of: A fund was set up by the association to enable Ebola orphans to attend secondary school. In 2019, the first graduates of the UMC Primary School were supported.
December 2014: Enabling access to education
The first campaign for the school started in December 2014. It came about through direct contact with the school's director, Saffiatu Turay, due to the Ebola epidemic that broke out in 2014. In May 2015, the association's board decided to continue helping the orphans of UMC Primary School Campbell Town in Freetown. Food, clothing, and school supplies are provided every month. Regular medical examinations of children in need are also guaranteed.
