Update 13 February – Two boys to Guinea -Don’t Mohammed (11yrs) and Alhaji (12) look fantastic? All credit to the skills of Dr Tony and the staff at Hope Medical Clinic, Guinea – thank you. The boys arrived at the Guinea border on 12 February and a car picked them up on the 13th to take them home to Port Loko, Sierra Leone. It is heartening to see them smiling and looking so much better. ”See the One, Love the One”

On 12 January, Mohammed (11) and Alhaji (12) start their journey from Sierra Leone to the Hope Clinic in Guinea to have operations on their facial tumours. We are very pleased to be working with EducAid in transporting them (2-3 days overland) and their companions to the Hope Clinic and to fund their operations and recuperation (some 2 weeks in Guinea). Tony Giles, the fantastic Maxillofacial Surgeon, has said the tumours are life threatening and the operations are not without risk but, if successful, the outlook for these boys is good – lives transformed.
Please pray for the boys, their travel, the operations and a successful recovery. We will keep you updated. “See the One, Love the One”
