Brick by brick, the school foundation in Mahabama, Sierra Leone, is being measured out. All work is done by hand.
Thanks to a generous donor, construction of a new school in Mahabama, Sierra Leone, is underway. (Benefactors will include the children who had to move from our orphanage and school in Newtown Amputee Community after the 2017 floods.)
