10 New Babies
As of June 2020 we welcomed 10 new babies into our baby rescue centre. Some of these babies were orphaned from their parent/parents dying from the coronavirus or from giving birth whilst other parents could not financially support the child. In the baby rescue centre we have house mums who take care of the babies during the night and aunties who take care of the babies during the day.
All of the staff who work in the baby rescue centre attend and are known to and supported in their role by the Fresh Hope church. These staff hand wash the babies clothes, nappies and towels, clean, making dinner and playing with the babies. Fresh Hope also need continued financial support to be able to support our staff financially to provide a safe and nurturing place where children are loved, valued and brought up knowing that Jesus loves them and has a plan for their life. As these children get older they have the opportunity to attend our Fresh Hope School and are financially supported by Fresh Hope into loving Christian homes whose new families attend and are supported by our Fresh Hope Church and by Reverend Massaquoi who oversees Fresh Hope Ministries International on the ground in Sierra Leone.
For a baby in the baby rescue centre to be cared for and for schooling fees to be secured it will cost £120 ($156/€139) per month which is 4 regular donors at £30 ($40/€35). Additionally, the baby rescue centre are in need of additional funds to purchase additional beds and furniture and they would love to construct a playground and to purchase some toys for our children to help our children to learn, develop and build social skills to help children’s transition into nursery.
