Schools in Sierra Leone have few resources, so the children’s books and 100’s of textbooks, donated by Hayle Academy, are extremely valuable to the Sierra Leone Mission, a charity supporting 30 churches and pastors, 23 schools and teachers and an orphanage for street children in Sierra Leone.

There are 500,000 plus street children living in horrendous conditions in Sierra Leone and the St.Ives charity helped the townspeople build the orphanage, called Bethesda, in 2016 that is only able to help a fraction of them.
