Future for Children Rescues Ebola Orphans- Trumpet Newspaper

By Melvin Tejan Mansaray

 In a bid to compliment the government’s agenda for the post-Ebola recovery, Future for Children Sierra Leone (FFC-SL) with help from Welt Hunger Heifer, WFP have impacted   over one hundred Ebola orphan and affected persons around the capital Freetown with food and non food items so that they could once more regain their livelihood.

The momentous event featured scores of mostly women who lost their loved ones during the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak in the country.

Peter Kargbo, Director FFC-SL, said they have been working with disadvantaged children (orphans) most of whom suffered as a result of the Ebola tragedy and  with help from partners (Street Child, WFP, Welt Hunger Hife), they have helped  with food and non food stuffs.

“This is because all along they have been crying for food despite we helped with a small amount it was not enough. Based on that they were able to bring in huge food supply for some 135 families or household to benefit,” Pa Kargbo said and explained that it is a must that a child belong to a family whether extended or nuclear and have suffered from Ebola.

Meanwhile, among the items supplied were three bags of rice to each family, beans, gallon oil, veronica buckets, palm oil, flower, corn flower foam mattresses, and financial package depending on the case definition to the tune of close to five hundred million according to the facilitators.

It has been said by psycho social counselors that during their interviews with beneficiaries it was discovered that most orphans are in need of food.

Joseph Kanu Welt Hunger Hilfe said that their coming to FFC-SL to donate hygiene   cash, food (from WFP) and non food items and added that the gesture is a collaborated one by four non-governmental organizations (Street Child, WHH, WFP etc).

He said: “We distributed the items because of the Ebola crisis which caused some children to lose their parents, caretakers etc and these are the kids we want to take care of. As schools have reopened we discovered that most of the families are crying about difficulties that is why we collaborated to do something to help these children move forward. In another words we are complimenting the government’s post Ebola recovery program.” He cautioned beneficiaries to use things with care so as to reduce the constraints of the orphans who have lost their love ones, “We hope with the help of Social Welfare Ministry and other stakeholder we will be able to target more orphans,” he said.

Similarly, many of the beneficiaries family where overwhelm with happiness with most of them seen smiling, arranging to transport their items.

Fatu Mansaray Goderich Community said words can’t express how much she appreciates the items and noted that she has over six orphans that she is looking after. She said: “I will make sure that I use all of the things provided for the orphans because they are many in my hands. However, I want to appeal for business capital as I have used to be doing my fish mongering but I lost my husband and child.”

Peter Sheku should be around his mid twenties but his ordeal has been herculean in being a survivor among several dead. He lost his mother, father and five others at Dworzak.

“I want to thank FFC-SL for providing me with these items because I have nobody now except my aunt to take my responsibility unlike when my parents use to be alive. I want to call on other organizations and individuals to follow suit the precedent of FFC-SL in helping Ebola survivors,” he said.
