Proposed update on the project's cost structure

Dear donors, 

We thank you kindly for your contributions. We were really ambitions and wanted help many families with the equivalent to US$ 1,000 each in construction materials, clothing and food. However, we were able to raise less money than we hoped. We raised a total of $1,450 from that $300 will be used in registering Kids Compassion as an official charity in Sierra Leone, $150 will be used to pay fees and that means we have $1,000 dollars to give directly through the families in the form of goods. 

With the way we structured the campaign this means we would be only able to help one household. We were looking to help more people and we would like to propose a new way of spending the amount you so generously donated, we would like to focus on providing food for 16 households in need. We would spend the money according to this table if you are ok with it. 

New budget proposal

We are looking forward to provide much needed help to the families of free town. 

Kindest regards, 
Mustapha Cole 
Project Manager Kids Compassion

The Story

Heavy rain and mudslides have fallen over Freetown, Sierra leone leaving thousands of people homeless and hundreds dead or missing. The city is covered with mud, debris and half destroyed buildings, the people have been left traumatised and with little tools to rebuild what once were their homes. 

Kids Compassion is an organization created by Mustafa Cole (SL) and Toni Lane Casserly (US) with the goal of creating direct response efforts to help children after realizing how many of them lost their entire families to the ebola crisis. 

Today, we have expanded our team and we wish to help as many families affected by this new crisis. We have a team on site that will make sure the donations reach the people who need it. Every $1,000 we raise means one household helped! 

Cost structure graphic description

Our initial goal is to raise $1,450 which will cover the expenses of one home helped, plus the fee of establishing Kids Compassion as a registered Charity in Sierra Leone along with a small emergency budget and our fundraising costs. However, we would like to help at least 25 homes for which we will need an additional $24,000 ($1,000 per household), and of course the more money we raise the more people we can help. As stated in the graphic, each home will receive food items, clothing and shelter.

Potential Challenges

We face the risk of our town experiencing more bad weather that will make it difficult to reach the homes to be helped and could create an even bigger need of help. 

The current state of Freetown could trigger an even bigger sanitation crisis. 

We have been working as private people as of right now, we would like to create our own organization to provide help now and in the future, we will depend on government approvals for this to be possible.
