December 2006 House Fire





Many of you may remember our horror as this house caught on fire in December of 2006. The family lost a 6 year old girl in that fire. The child had been sent to Freetown for education since there wasn't a school for her in Kabala at the time. ...sigh... A family now lives in a section of the house that isn't collapsed, but not in perfect condition. We took rice to them and provided some internal parasite treatment.
