Kamera’s mother and father are hardworking and just like all parents in Sierra Leone and around the world only want the best for their beloved 11-year-old son.
Even with a relatively good job as a police officer, and with the extra money brought into the household by his mother through the selling of rice, pepper and other items at the local market, they barely get by with enough to eat and paying other required expenses.
Paying school fees for Kamera was something they could only dream about.
That is until the supporters of Bread and Water for Africa® stepped up for Kamera and hundreds of other young boys and girls through their compassion and generosity enabling them to attend school.
Because of them, we were able to assist our longtime partner in the country, Faith Healing Development Organization (FHDO), construct the Logos Academy, Lumley Campus, where Kamera is today in the fifth-grade learning to read and write, do math and science.
“Kamera has always had the passion to become a medical doctor but his parents could not afford to pay the fees for an expensive private school,” reported FHDO executive director Rev. Francis Mambu.
And that’s exactly the reason Bread and Water for Africa® partnered with Rev. Mambu to not only construct the school, but to make it affordable for working parents like Kamera’s and provide school fees for orphaned and destitute children who have no one who could even pay minimal school fees.
“During the 2018-2019 academic year, Kamera ’s parents were able to enroll him at Logos Academy where the school fees are extremely affordable to enable him to pursue his dream of becoming a medical doctor,” said Rev. Mambu.
Kemera told us that not only was he thrilled to learn that he would be attending the Logos Academy, but his experience there has exceeded all his high expectations.
“The teachers of Logos Academy are very accommodating and committed which has helped me improve my school performance in the past two years,” he said.
“I appreciate Rev. Mambu and the supporters of Bread of Water for Africa® so much for establishing this school.”
Instead of wasting his days with no hope for a bright future, because of the supporters of Bread and Water for Africa® he is filling his mind with the knowledge he will need to be a successful, self-reliant adult with one day children of his own to love, care for and send to school, as he heads off to work as a medical doctor.
For us at Bread and Waiter for Africa ®, it will be a rewarding journey to see a young boy like Kamera become a successful doctor in the future.
