Mango help ease hunger...

The Mangoes are in Season. This is a great help to the hungry in Sierra Leone. The two children (pictured above) are filling up on mango because the rice they have always depended on their mother to provide them with each day is too costly to afford these days. Our staff & family in Freetown at St. Laurence House must also depend on the mango to compensate for the lack of rice due to the fact it is too high priced to purchase.
