Major General Charlie Herbert came to Hazlegrove this morning to talk to the children in Assembly about how the two children we are sponsoring in Sierra Leone are doing. Charlie runs the charity Wharf Kids, who are helping families in out there re-build their lives after the Ebola outbreak.
Jenneh Appiah (age 6) and Samuel Tagba (age 10) are both doing well. Jenneh’s speech is improving and the house Wharf Kids are building for Samuel’s family is nearing completion.
The children of Hazlegrove wanted to send something out to Jenneh and Samuel, and decided on a Hazlegrove fleece for each of them. Charlie presented a photobook which is packed full of photos, not only of Jenneh and Samuel, but of all the children that Wharf Kids support in Sierra Leone. We presented Wharf Kids with a cheque for £300.00 which is the money the children raised on a mufti day for International Day of Languages.
It was good to see Charlie Herbert again, and to have an update on two little children whose lives have been changed by Ebola.
Below are a few photographs from the photobook. The full book is on view on the Library for the children to see.
