Dear Friends,

Please join us for a beautiful Sunday BBQ to help support the economic development in Sierra Leone through education and empowerment!

Enjoy Gourmet Persian BBQ, Live Entertainment, Auctions and Raffles as you share in our work by giving to less fortunate families.

Every dollar raised can have a huge impact on families and children’s lives. Your contribution will provide college scholarships, adult literacy training, street orphan outreach and other programs. At the end of the day we are all part of one BIG family and that’s our Human Family!

Thank you for your support. I look forward to seeing you on May 22nd.

Love,
Terri

2014 Fight Ebola in Sierra Leone Campaign

In 2014, Families Without Borders was able to send $33,000 to fight Ebola in Sierra Leone through our partnership with the University of Makeni. The money was mostly raised through an online campaign and was available to use in Makeni before global relief was available. The fund was used to provide necessities for which no one else had approved funding in early stages of the outbreak such as fuel for the ambulances to transport Ebola victims, baby food for affected children, chlorine food for quarantined homes, etc.
