He added that after raising the fund they had some cash left and thought of what to do with it and came up with the idea of fostering long term recovery by providing education for the affected children and they also realized that because their families may have lost their sources of income, properties and needed funds to pay school fees and buy learning materials was the reason they intervened.

“We donated food items used clothing and doled scholarships to them because we want to ensure that we uplift their families and society in the very long term because education is one very good area,” Sesay said.

According to Sesay under normal circumstances when there is no mudslide and disaster children in Mortimer and Kamayama find it very difficult to attend school because schools in the communities are late shift schools, adding that they  believe that if  the kids are educated they will be able to help develop the community and country in the future.

“We are hoping that these items that we brought will help reactive social lives and needs and increase interactions in the communities,” Sesay said.

Fatmata Sesay one of the beneficiaries commended Quebec Canada for the scholarships, adding that she has been struggling with her schooling since the mudslide incident and that she lost her educational materials during the mudslide.

“The money is timely because I can use it to buy some of my school materials like text books which I have been struggling to get,” Fatmata said.
