Aja

Sierra Leone relief project


Adisa “Aja” AndweleWilkie Cumberbatch Primary students giving Aja a helping hand by donating four boxes of canned food. Every day for the last two weeks when pupils of Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary left home for school, a can of food was among their books.


P upils and teachers presented four boxes of foodstuff to Adisa “Aja” Andwele for his Sierra Leone relief project.

The project, launched in April, will see about 10 000 inhabitants of the strife-torn West African state benefiting from clothing, food and money from Barbadians.

Principal Eulese Griffith said after seeing the footage of Aja’s trip to the refugee camp, some teachers asked if the school could participate and parents were subsequently notified.

 

Barbadian children lend a helping hand

Aja encouraged the children not to waste food and told them they were fortunate to have a steady supply of it.

He said monetary donations could also be made to the Sierra Leone fund at Barbados National Bank.

 

A gift from Barbados

As Aja explains man’s technological advancements have transformed the world into a global village. However, they seem incapable of halting this continual cycle of conflict, war and death, as well as social decay and economic oppression.

This situation has led to the formation of 'The International Foundation for Peace & Poverty Eradication' (ifppe)

AfricaIFPPE was launched on Friday, October 31st 2003 at the United Nations House, Barbados.

The Foundation was officially launched by the Deputy Prime Minister of Barbados, The Hon. Mia Amor Mottley.

"This is a dream come true" says founder AJA. "It is a natural progression of my belief that peace and poverty eradication could be achieved in the world".

While in Sierra Leone, he spent time at Waterloo refugee camp where 7 000 residents asked for donations of clothing; at an amputee camp, the request was for food stuff and monetary donations.

He said the state was ravaged by ten years of war that ended two years ago and the nation was now in the rebuilding stage.
