    So much to do...

    "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.”

    Giving love...

    We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

    Helping others...

    "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.”

    Benevolence, charity, compassion, kindness...

    "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.”

    Joseph Lakoh, Chief Advisor
