From Joseph Conteh, Project Manager at the Makankisa Child Care Centre in Yele, Sierra Leone:
Christmas was well celebrated as the children had new clothes, a special Christmas meal and real fun on the 24th and 25th of December, 2018.
Most of the Christians from 5 surrounding villages came in numbers to celebrate Christmas with the orphaned children at the center. They too came with their own food to share with everyone. The dining hall was full to capacity and others had to sit outside the building.
Thanks to the Donors for approving the special funds.
On the 26th of December 2018, the children were sent to their various homes for holidays. This is to have them get a feeling of home. They were collected to return to the center on 4th January 2019.
