Sierra Leone

One of our previous Presidents; Lori Spragg, a greatly respected and frequent visitor to Sierra Leone where she works tirelessly to try to make a positive impact on the lives of those severely affected, especially children after eleven years of a cruel and terrible civil war. Through her invaluable connections and her sheer determination and hard work, Lori has built libraries for schools with books donated in the UK, supplied science equipment and enabled boreholes to provide clean water for whole communities that were drinking polluted water from streams.

The Marlow Bridge Rotary Club was proud to support her and completed a successful International project to drill a borehole in one of the affected villages.
Sierra Leone Mudslide

Sierra Leone Mudslide

Our club President Lori Spragg in partnership with the Marlow Rotary club, rapidly organised and mobilised a bucket appeal to raise £2,863 (plus gift aid) for the victims of the mudslide and flood disaster in  in Sierra Leone. This has been used to buy and distribute clothing, shoes, soap to those most affected

Building on Books

Building on Books

During the rebel conflict (1991 – 2002), schools and libraries in Sierra Leone were lost. In less than three years, Loris charity; Build on Books has helped more than a third of a million books to be collected, sorted and shipped to Sierra Leone. 150 schools and 2 community libraries have received books. The limiting issue is the cost of shipping!

Drilling a Borehole

Drilling a Borehole

Sierra Leoneans get most of their water from polluted sources such as ponds or unprotected wells. This is the biggest cause of death there. Our chosen project for 2018 in to 'build a borehole' to ensure we can provide fresh clean water to a community in Sierra Leone. We have the equipment ready; we now need to raise £5,000.
