Charity Begins at HOME
This month Freight Agency are honoured to be providing our services to Home Leone, a charity
organisation helping the poorest in Ebola troubled Sierra Leone. As a charity, they are Aiming to build 1,000 low cost homes in Sierra Leone to relocate thousands of people from devastating slum conditions.
Freight Agency shipped a container of school equipment from Luton to Freetown – the idea of shipping the parts of a school that has closed down was featured on the BBC News recently.
Home Leone was founded by Nigel Hyde on 2nd April 2014 and achieved charity status on 12th August 2014. Nigel’s reason for choosing Sierra Leone for this charity work is that he feels that the problems they face daily are worse than any others he has seen after visiting over 70 countries. Nigel felt that the situation, then made worse by the 2014 Ebola crisis, called for the support of those who have so much materially.
Home Leone is a new and innovative venture. With Nigel’s leadership, along with the dedicated support of volunteers and staff, Home Leone will be truly transformative in the communities it reaches and the lives it touches.
