As you can see, we make every penny count.

All of our HelpMadina projects are made possible because of support from our donors who raise funds and make donations. The people of Madina are incredibly thankful to our donors and fundraisers for their support, kindness and generosity. All funds raised have an huge impact and are very gratefully received, and all volunteers who travel to Sierra Leone are self-funded, paying for their own travel and other costs.
