Shoe Bag Treats!

Receiving shoe bags at Christmas is the highlight of the year for many of our children in Sierra Leone.

Every year the bags are put together by volunteers from all over the UK and sent to Magnus for distribution to children from our churches, schools and Bethesda Orphanage on Christmas Day.

The shoe bags are made up from donations received throughout the year and contain a mixture of treats and practical items, small items of clothing, books and toys.

Typical shoe bag contents

2 x toys
water bottle
either T-shirt and shorts
or pants and vest (boys)
or dress and pants (girls)
2 x face cloths
2 x soaps
2 x toothpaste
2 x toothbrushes
2 x writing pencils
2 x pens
2 x exercise books
coloured pencils
pencil sharpener

Thank you!

Magnus Bendu sends huge thanks to all of the churches and individuals in the UK for contributing to the shoe bags, which provide an exciting and happy treat for the children in our Sierra Leone communities!
