In October 2019 however, I was approached by a phenomenal charity – Melqosh Mission International. A non-profit charity who focuses on improving the lives of thousands of amputees, rape victims and orphans of the brutal civil war in Sierra Leone.
In January 2020 I travelled to Freetown, Sierra Leone on a medical and empowerment mission where I helped hundreds of amputees by delivering desperately needed medication, vaccines and mobility aids to the amputee village.
From day one I had a massive impact on the people as they did me. As well as administer aid to hundreds of men, women and children, I helped empower them to improve their lives and to try and be the best versions of themselves on a daily basis. By changing their mindset it not only helped them see things in a more positive approach, but many have taken massive action to improve their lives as they seek to become educated, start a small business, find work or even travel.
I am now an official Executive Patron for Melqosh Mission. I will return to Freetown each year to carry on the good work I have started along with a team of volunteers comprising of anyone who wants to join us and make a difference. There is endless amounts of opportunity in Sierra Leone to make a huge and rewarding impact whilst helping thousands of people lead a better life.
In 2020 we are focusing on finishing off the school being built in the village. This will have a huge and positive effect on the entire village and educate many children, giving them a far brighter future. Education in Sierra Leone really is POWER!
