Books for Kids in Sierra Leone

Update posted by Tim Mansel On Feb 22, 2016

Actually they arrived a week or two ago and it's taken me a while to post these. But I wanted you to see the books in action, as it were. Thank you all again so much for contributing. And if you ever wanted to donate again to EducAid, here's the link: http://www.educaid.org.uk/

And a short message from Miriam, and I quote: "Thank you Thank you :)"

So, generous people, an update… seventeen boxes of encyclopaedias were delivered this morning (it took me while to work that out – 16 x 6 + 1x 4 = 100). I then carried them, gasping, up three flights of stairs (these are substantial encyclopaedias, hardcover, 320 pages, no need to go to the gym this week, will need to see the osteopath encyclopaedias) and took this snap for posterity. I now have to ring the shipping company (and, at some point, carry them back down two flights of stairs, hurrah). They won’t get to Sierra Leone before Christmas, sadly, but as soon as they arrive, I will provide photographic evidence.

Again, thank you all so much. This will really help make a difference for a lot of children out there.

So... we've reached the target. Thanks so much to all. But please carry on spreading the word about EducAid - if we raise a bit more that will help cover the cost either of shipping or of a few more books. Here's the website address again: http://www.educaid.org.uk/ - have a look; there are some beautiful pictures up there.
