27 April 1961 to 27 April 2011
People are celebrating the 50th Independence Day Anniversary
of Sierra Leone all over the country in many ways.
What a joyous sight it is to see people crowding together in celebration and unity.
They are rejoicing as they demonstrate their love for beloved, Mama Salone.
Entertainers spare no expense to put on a great show for the people.
And the people come by the thousands to experience such lavish festivities.
Lights, cameras & action - all around.
This truly is an event to remember.
In a country where life expectancy is 40 years old (ref. BBC article), for some it will be a once in a life time event.
It is good for the country to have a coming together, a Nationwide Celebration.
Certainly, it is a diversion of the daily struggles.
It encourages and uplifts.
May the festivities shine on...
...and tucked away in Freetown,
and in Kabala,
and around the areas
there are some quiet celebrations going on, as well.
These people are celebrating because
they have been remembered,
and cared for by you!
May we never forget!
Your donation to Nazareth House Apostolate may not seem like much to you,
but to these people,
it is the difference between a day with or without.
