She said the founder and philanthropist Dr. Nancy Peddle is currently in the United States of America working very hard with other organizations towards the sustainability of their programme.



With the outbreak of the Ebola virus, Madam Francess Brown made an appeal to Dr. Nancy Pellar in the United States of America who in turn contacted other philanthropists to come to the aid of the sponsored schools (staff and pupils) and women’s organizations.
In Freetown, the following schools: Lilian Preparatory School, Beckley Preparatory school, Goshen Primary school, Joshua Community school, the Dele Preparatory School and Dele International High School and the following organizations Shade Sierra Leone, Mission 4 Salone, RYDO, SLSW, YAGO, WRESL, AIM, FAHP, and Christian in Action have benefited from similar donations.
