MISSIONS

 

Our organisation  provides Educational Sponsorship to children of marginalised war afflicted amputees and orphans of the deceased amputees, to enable them to gain better opportunities and lead meaningful lives (as their disadvantaged parents cannot pay their school/ college/university fees).  In addition, we have been rendering Empowerment Sessions to the amputees since 2008, to renew their mind-set, revive their self-worth and regenerate a hope for their future despite their disabilities. In the last six years, we have also been providing Medicare, clothing, crutches, food and monetary gifts to war afflicted amputees and their children, widows and orphans of deceased amputees in the provinces and seven Amputee camps in the Western Area during our annual or bi-yearly missions in Sierra Leone.

 

The charity made history in January 2014, establishing the 1st IT Academy to teach and train female war afflicted amputees and provide supplementary education to their dependants in the most social-excluded parts of the Western Area.

Melqosh extended its charitable activities in July, in a bid to help the poor and needy and   launched an Ebola Crisis Food Aid Programme, donating 60 bags of rice, 50 gallons of oil, 2,000 packs of clean water and monetary gifts to amputees, their families, orphans and widows at 10 amputee locations/camps at Grafton, Jui, Rokel, Hastings, Newton, Hastings, Waterloo 55, Waterloo Beguma Rd Amputee Camps plus 3 other amputee locations. They benefited from our Ebola Crisis Food Aid Programme mission on Thursday 18th Sept. 2014 in time for 3 days' lockdown in Sierra Leone. 

In addition, the charity executed the 3rd phase of its Ebola Mission on Wednesday 15th October 2014, distributing thousands of PPEs, Personal Protective Equipment to War Amputees. The 1st phase was executed in July, distributed anti-bacterial products to our beneficiaries. Several fundraising activities were undertaken to make our missions possible.

Christmas Ebola Mission undertaken on Monday 15th of December 2014. This

drive  included donating 2 bags of rice each to our beneficiaries, plus PPE supplies and

monetary gifts as a continuity of our annual Christmas projects in Sierra Leone. The project

included provisions for Ebola orphans in Freetown and the Provinces. 

Our #PurpledToStopEbola Campaign facilitated this drive.
