Dream Home

Recent news

A series of tweets from the author JK Rowling as well as a number of thoughtful pieces regarding “voluntourism” have been making the rounds on social media as of late (August 2016).
The Dream Home children range from 2-17 years old and we had no medical records for any of them or any idea what immunizations they had or what they needed.  
On June 16, 2016, the kids were excitedly dressed in their African attire donated to them by workers and volunteers of Dream Home.
April was a month full of birthday celebrations and a birthday party for Geraldine, Dorcas & Aaron.
One of the favorite breakfast meals at the Dream Home is bread with a delicious mix of sardines and spaghetti. The kids wash this down with a hot cup of Lipton (or similar) tea.

During the 2014-2015 Ebola Crisis in West Africa, thousands of people unfortunately passed away.  Family were devastated as the infection spread through communities, resulting in the deaths of entire families.  In some instances, the children survived and became orphans.   According to a published report over 12,000 children lost their primary care giver and over 3,000 children lost both parents to Ebola in Sierra Leone. This excludes the count of orphans in Guinea and Liberia. Many of these children are not being adequately taken care of - with some fending from themselves and resorting to undesirable lifestyles in order to survive. 

Goal of the Dream Home is to provide the best care that we can for deserving children that have lost their parents to Ebola.  This will cover everything including food, clothing, school related expenses and psychosocial support.

Taking care of children is a long-term task. It is no small undertaking. It's not the sort of thing that you can decide to do today ... and abandon tomorrow. That said it offers tremendous benefits in terms of being able to help deserving children grow and mature.  Today we have the opportunity to step in and help these children grow up into model people - people that will impact their communities and nation - and even the world.  It's time to invest into the future of Ebola orphans.
