Our excitement continues......

Our excitement continues... it’s amazing what people can do in a short space of time......................we have people contributing to the project from all over, London, Turkey, Stockholm and Texas but we still need your support!
Miriam Tholley - future resident of the Maronka Girls' Safe House
So far 21 dresses have been made in London and Esther’s group have now had a promise of more dresses from a sewing group in Walthamstow who heard about our girls
Angela has made 30 ditty bags in Texas and contributed some great educational materials.
We have had cash donations (that I am aware of) from Stockholm, Turkey and London totalling over £550 and there has been 45 items purchased on our wishlist so far! 
This is fantastic. Please keep it up!! 
If you haven't already and you would like to buy something to help make the environment more attractive for the girls, to provide fun and stimulating reading material or maybe equipment for creative or sporting activities please have a look at our Maronka Girls Wish List.  You can contact me on ( so you can send your gift to my house and I will bring it with me when I come to Sierra Leone.

I have bought my ticket so its official now and I will be arriving in Sierra Leone, September 4th.

We have been making plans for the set up and running of the house, getting together activities, house rules etc

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported our project so far and please continue to support us by sharing this blog with all your friends and other like minded people who can support the Maronka girls further.
