Fogbo home rebuild for Hawa
We are very glad to report that work to rebuild Hawa’s home in Fogbo, Sierra Leone, has now been completed, following a devastating fire, which resulted from an accident in the house next door.
It has been important for the community to complete the rebuilding work as quickly as possible, due to the imminent threat of seasonal heavy rains.
Repairs have been made to the roof and walls, plus new windows and doors are installed. The final steps included plastering, paving, bracing and finishing the roof with corrugated iron sheeting, to enable Hawa and her children to move back into their home and ensure the building is completely watertight.
Hawa has expressed her gratitude and happiness for the help she has received from the local church at Fogbo and the wider Connexion Community.
The Sierra Leone Mission (SLM) extended particular thanks at the Connexion Conference for the generosity of church members at Mortimer West End Chapel, who successfully managed to raise £1000 through donations and fundraising activities.
