Healey International Relief Foundation News: April 2017
--Turning Scars Into Stars--
 Report From Sierra Leone

The March 2017 HealeyIRF trip to Sierra Leone included visits to the healthcare facilities and Interim Care Centers that we support. In addition, meetings with government agencies and other organizations were held in order to collaborate and coordinate our efforts with others.

Little Things Matter -- Water Deliveries to Fatima ICC

Only 9% of households in Sierra Leone report having water on their premises.  What this means for Fatima ICC is that when the rains don't fill water tanks the children must help with getting water. With 20 orphans at the Fatima ICC you can imagine that during the dry season (January - April) there are a lot of trips to get water to fill up the water tank -- almost everyday.  Pictured below the kids have returned from getting water and are putting it in the water tank.

While the children don't mind the work and have many chores that they are responsible for, this was one that we felt they didn't need!  That is why we have made arrangements for water to be delivered for the remainder of the dry season. Getting water took quite a bit of time and as you can see is not an easy task. Now the kids can spend more time on their studies and keeping their rooms clean!
