Imagine a world where statistically for every 5 children in your family one of them will die before they reach the age of 5. A world where there are over 340,000 orphans who don’t have the love and protection of their parents and are at risk of the HIV and Ebola epidemics. This is the life of a child in Sierra Leone.
Finsbury Associates and the Kids Initiative have been working alongside All As One a charity that supports the children in Sierra Leone, to hold a drop day and series of fund raising events. Thanks to the kind donations of the Dubai public at our drop day we are able to send a container to Sierra Leone full of children’s items such as clothes, shoes, toys and games to make their life that little bit better. We thank you for your generosity.
Alongside this the Staff at Finsbury Associates went through a wide variety of grueling tasks to raise money for the children. From Billy Buckley, CRM having a full leg wax leaving him silky smooth for the ladies (but still unable to pull) and Danielle Baxter fasting for a full day… In total we raised over 600GBP.
Rebecca Smith, the event organiser said: “I can’t thank the Dubai public enough for their generosity at the drop day. We received so many quality items that the children are going to be so thankful for. I also want to give a big thank you to the staff at Finsbury Associates who gave up something in order for the children to gain something, whether that be the hair on their legs, swearing or food for the day… It all made a difference.”
