St Laurence House enjoys CHEESE...

Packed up and shipped from our headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky, supplies are arriving in Freetown for distribution in Sierra Leone. For the most part, it is all much needed medical supplies for Kabala area and Kroo Bay.

All packages were packed with lots of love and hugs...Once the packages arrive in Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone, they are picked up by our Nazareth House staff and brought to St. Laurence House (our rented center of operations) to be sorted and distributed.

Kadijah finds some hidden treasures for our staff in one box. Spaghetti (James favorite) beans, and processed cheese (Can't ship things that are perishable - and processed cheese just WON'T perish). Cheese, real cheese, is another hard to come by item in Salone - either unavailable or too expensive.

Fresh bread ready and waiting, Kadijah jumps at the chance to make cheese sandwiches.
