Jenneh’s Big Day Out
So lovely to see little Jenneh (Ebola survivor and orphan) out on a day trip to Lumley Beach with her new tutor Ruth. Little Jenneh was the basis for the formation of Wharf Kids in the summer of 2015. She lost her mother and little sister to Ebola, and remains utterly traumatised by her experiences. In recent weeks Wharf Kids has taken Ruth on as an additional private tutor to Jenneh, helping her with her delayed speech, and trying to develop her reading and writing to levels that will allow her to cope with the demands of school. Lovely to see her enjoying some time out of the demanding environment of Magazine Wharf, playing and laughing with Ruth on the Freetown beaches.
