Lent Appeal 2022
Amie’s daughter Lombeh was so tiny that doctors thought she was unlikely to survive. Expert healthcare advice is difficult to access in remote parts of the world and Amie had to travel a long distance to reach the nearest hospital in Sierra Leone.
With your donations to our Lent appeal we can reach communities around the world and help them to grow and reach their full potential.
Lombeh was severely malnourished but Amie never gave up hope
Amie’s baby girl Lombeh was very small and dangerously unwell. Doctors advised that Lombeh was malnourished because Amie didn’t have sufficient nutrients in her breastmilk.
But Amie never gave up.
A small act of love from kind strangers who pointed Amie to Sister Anthonia’s clinic made a life- saving difference. Amie took Lombeh for check-ups at the clinic every day. With the help of local experts like Sister Anthonia and Amie’s dedication and hope, Lombeh recovered and has grown into a healthy young girl. Amie is also teaching the food-making techniques she learnt from the Sisters to other new mothers in her community.
“Sometimes people would ask if I was carrying a doll.”
Will you help families like Amie's?
While the world produces enough food to feed everybody, more and more people don’t have enough to eat. Your donation can turn into something wonderful in the hands of our local experts.
With your donations to our Lent appeal we can reach families around the world and help them to grow and reach their full potential. In times of hunger, conflict or other challenges, our local experts – like Sister Anthonia – can make a real and lasting difference thanks to your support.
