A message from the SALCAF C.E.O
Dear brothers and sisters,
On behalf of everyone at Sierra Leonean Canadian Federation (SALCAF), I would like to wish you a Happy New Year. Our organization was formed on October 16, 2016, and 2016 was a big year for
the Sierra Leonean Canadian Federation.
From that date we have achieved the following:
This is a manifestation of maintaining our core values of ONE HEART, ONE MIND, and ONE VOICE.
As we enter the year 2017. I must express that I am especially pleased about the determination that
all SALCAF members have demonstrated to move this organization forward.
Our focus in 2017 will include:
I would like to strongly remind everyone that we should continue to work together with an open
mind, celebrating our successes and learning from our mistakes. We should also be ready to face
the challenges that lie ahead.
Thank you for your commitments to the Sierra Leonean community. We count on your support so that
together, we can make an impact on the Sierra Leonean community here in Canada and back home.
I wish everybody a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017.

"The Sierra Leonean Canadian Federation (SALCAF.org) intends to bring Sierra Leoneans together through multiple causes including: supporting children's education, supporting abused women and children, feeding hungry families, strategies to reduce poverty, providing health care services, and fundraising for disaster relief.”
"Be part of a change in Sierra Leone. You may feel like a drop in the bucket, but every drop counts. Your donation will enable us to deliver critical, life-saving relief. Don’t turn away, give today so others can live.”
"Dirty water and hygiene issues are the main causes of diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera and typhoid in Sierra Leone.
Improving access to clean water and toilets will help to reduce the risk of disease outbreaks.”
"It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
"There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problems.”
"The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful then a thousand heads bowing in prayer.
As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person.”
"When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.
Do your little bit of good where you are, it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”
"It is our responsibility to alleviate the suffering of Sierra Leoneans. Our organization aims to bring urgent assistance to the most vulnerable families. Help us end poverty.
Donate now and support our humanitarian cause.”
