Help provide for orphaned children with a better life and future.
Over 4,000 children have lost their parents to the deadly Ebola outbreak that is ravaging West Africa. Ebola-orphaned children in Sierra Leone have no parents to guide, protect or love them. The sudden loss of both parents, often in the same month, is crippling and depressing.
GreaterGood.or partners with Develop Africa to fill in the gap by meeting these orphans' needs for shelter, food, school and counseling. Fear of contracting the disease has prevented some people from coming to the aid of these children. With your support, staff from Develop Africa will continue to meet the needs of Sierra Leone's most vulnerable citizens.
You can help. Just $10 pays for a set of clothes for a child orphaned by Ebola.
