Thanks for been in touch and helping MYCR overall vision. My need of support is met.

I am happy to inform you and all other supporters who sent in funds for Hawanatu’s surgery that we have received the sum $850 since Friday for the surgery and all other expenses of Hawanatu.

Also we have finally brought Hawanatu to Freetown for the surgery. Hawanatu came along with her Aunty who wishes Hawanatu recover her sight. They are presently lodged at the Hill Valley Hotel here in Freetown. My team and I will pick up Hawanatu and her Aunt to the Hospital tomorrow to see and make urgent surgery appointment with the Doctor.

I will keep you posted

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to send you this Note from the Movement for youth and Children’s Rights MYCR Sierra Leone to kindly request your support on our URGENT exclusive project with a girl child suffering from a bulging eye since age five.

Hawanatu Kamara lives in a small village about 100 miles from the city Freetown. Hawanatu had a bad eye since age five. Unfortunately, the parents cannot afford to take her to hospital for treatment, as a result she has been treated with harsh native herbs which undoubtedly have led to the present state of her eye. Hawanatu’s case is an exclusive Project which will be used as pilot project. Shall MYCR continue with similar projects? It depends on the absolute outcome of this project. MYCR is attempting this project based on its urgency and humanitarian grounds.

In order to help Hawanatu Kamara with her eye problem, she must be moved from her village to Freetown (100 miles). Mother would have to travel with her to the city and field Officer of MYCR shall facilitate that. It will require the acknowledgment of the village community leaders, this is to avoid alarming issues of child trafficking and this is more the reason why the mother has to travel with Hawanatu Kamara to Freetown.

A feasibility search on an eye Clinic in Freetown and other expenditure is given below:

a. Surgical Operation – $ 450
b. Admission for 10 days – $100
c. Transport for two to Freetown and back to village – $ 40
d. Medication – $ 200
e. Subsequent visits for check up (Transport) – $ 40
Total – $ 830

On the amount stated above, MYCR Sierra Leone has received from Mark McKinney and his wife Nancy the sum of $500 to execute this exclusive project of Hawanatu. We say a big thanks to them for their compassionate support to this needy child. We need your support in order to pursue this project of Hawanatu Kamara. Your generous contribution will save Hawanatu’s life.

Please find attached a report on Hawanatu’s condition:

Here is an excerpt:

With an amount of $ 1500 sent for MYCR by Lauren Sherman to facilitate contacts with MYCR clients/children in 4 communities out of 10 local communities, the MYCR Volunteer team was able to do the following activities:

  1. Revive MYCR operations in four communities: Kamayama, Kaningo, Pentagon and Mamaka Village.
  2. Hold discussions with parents and community leaders in the different communities.
  3. Gather children, raise sensitization and awareness, re-identify orphans, underprivileged children and the general disadvantaged/ street children.
  4. Feed children (refreshment) and build confidence: some  psychosocial recovery therapy was done.
