I made contact with Chi Chi Cheery foundation, a charity working in Sierra Leone, through a friend who is working in Sierra Leone. I wanted to provide whatever assistance I could to help alleviate the suffering caused by Ebola in the region. The charity sent me the following email, I have omitted the pirctures that it also sent within the text although the pictures appear on this blog and in the enlightened living tab.
"My name is chi-chicherry cherry keister and i am the founder of Chi-chicheery Foundation. it was called Angels of the Poor at first but the Director of Education advised me to changed it to my name because of some reasons.
we have done a lot of work and we have contributed a lot to fight against ebola but our major weakness is to write a good report.
Chris told me about the posters and i am so happy and greatful . words can’t tell how much that means to the Charity and the people in our community . i am sending some pictures of what we have been doing.
some of these kids their parents are dead or in a quarantine home. we have more than 200 pictures of kids who we are helping .
