Sierra Leone

The residents of Freetown were awakened with knee high water after torrential rains flooded the town. Hundreds of bodies are buried under several feet of mud and water, awaiting discovery by loved ones and crisis relief workers as they scour the murky depths in the aftermath of a large mudslide. overcame the town. Additional bodies are adrift, naked from the force of the waters. Others are caught up in braches, ditches, and washed up on whatever higher ground they land. Their bodies, many are children; have nothing more than leaves to as a shroud. There is no time to mourn as the hospital overflows with bodies and injured survivors. 

A Child's Hope Fund has partners in Sierra Leone, providing relief in the region for many years. After barely recovering from the Ebola outbreak, they are once again faced with unimaginable challenges in efforts to feed and clothe the survivors, and themselves. A Child's Hope Fund will send emergency funds to provide some relief while arranging for shipment of much needed medical supplies, food, and other necessities.

 Disaster Grant announced for Philippines

Oceanside, 9 August 2012
– ACHF family today announced an emergency grant of € 7.500,00 to strengthen the charity’s ongoing efforts to assist thousands of people thrown from their homes earlier this week by massive flooding which left large parts of Manila crippled under nine feet of dirty, overflowing rain and river water.

Funds will be used to purchase bulk foods for survivors and to provide emotional support and  counseling through ACHF family’ two Mobile Puppet Theaters, in Cebu and Manila, whose staffs from local charity HOPE Worldwide are cross-trained for both education to children against sexual exploitation and professional level assistance to flood victims and disaster workers.

Michelle Laurel, Manila-based Global Program Director of ACHF family, reports that children at the Center of Hope, a residential facility protecting exploited children supported by ACHF family since 1995, were rescued at midnight last night and taken to a school being used evacuation center in Laguna, a community 30 miles from Manila, where streets filled to nine feet or more of rain water and sewage-polluted backwash from Manila Bay.

ACHF’s Managing Director, Dr. Joel MacCollam, visited the impacted area after similar flooding four years ago. “People showed great courage and enterprise in helping their families and neighbors through that horrible period. Today’s waters are twice as deep, and the ACHF global family is prepared to provide continuing support to local relief efforts.”

All funds raised from this appeal will be used exclusively for flood aid. No administrative or other expenses will be taken.
