This foundation works to bring change in the lives of individuals and communities in Sierra Leone.

The widow, Gbessay Kamara sells mangoes and other fruits depending on the season to feed her five children and to support their education. Gbessay Kamara whose hope has been restored after four years, was passing nights at a neighbor’s room ahead of the intervention of the Jamil and Nyanga Jaward Foundation.

Making a statement during the handing over ceremony, the project coordinator Rev. Josephine Bankole said they interviewed several widows in Grafton to select a most vulnerable recipient and Gbessay Kamara was considered the most vulnerable amongst them.

“This project has not been easy. As a family foundation living overseas, they have never met or knownGbessay but they sacrifice their resources to transform the lives of this family,” Rev. Josephine Bankole said.

The recipient Gbessay Kamara expressed her appreciation for the support from Jamil and Nyanga Jaward Foundation. “With a house to sleep with my five children and a shop to do my business, my story has changed for good,” the recipient joyfully remarked. She called on the foundation to help her children acquire better education and to also help other widows in the Grafton community.

Gbessay Kamara’s story and that of many others in Sierra Leone are unheard and unspoken.  With a shop at the house, Gbessay can sell and save money to raise her five children for a brighter future.
