Sallamatu is a chubby and beautiful youngster who lives with her parents in a rural village in Bombali district north of Sierra Leone. She is a Limba by tribe and Christian by faith. Her parents are peasant farmers who grow basically what they eat and sell very little to augment their other needs which proves grossly inadequate to cater for the basic needs of the family. Their annual income from farming is estimated at US$165.00. She lives with her parents in a small mud brick house with grass roof top that is poorly constructed and lacks proper sanitary facilities. She is active, cheerful and gets on well with her primary caregiver. She is relatively in good health. She spends most of the day at the home-based Early Childhood Care Center while her parents are busy working on their farm. With sponsorship, Sallamatu will be able to have her basic needs and at least have the opportunity to be educated with hope for a brighter future.
It’s a great way to create a bond between someone who’s
special to you and a child who will welcome his or her friendship and support.
