Oudama War Victims organisation in Freetown has collaborated with a patriotic Sierra Leonean based in Canada, Kadiatu Sankoh, to feed 50 children at the Deep Eye Water community in the outskirt of Freetown. The exercise was held on Thursday January 23 at the Army of God Church, Deep Eye Water.
Madam Sankoh said that taking proper care of children, especially vulnerable ones, is a clear manifestation of patriotism. She expressed keen interest in child development like orphans and other children in dire need of help.
Executive Director of Oudama War Victims, Rev. George M.S. Fornah, said the feeding exercise was meant to make the children feel at home and also to improve on their nutritional status.
He said the 11 years war in the country left many children orphaned, homeless, malnourished, and dropping out of school, among other vulnerabilities, thus in dire need of help.
Coordinator of Oudama War Victims, man of God Will Kargbo expressed dismay over the deplorable state of children in Sierra Leone, and called on well-meaning individuals and organizations to come to their aid so that they too will be able to help destitute children.
