This year Spats Boots has pledged to give 10% of sales through this website to help children in Sierra Leone who have been orphaned by Ebola. The St George Foundation runs a residential centre just outside Freetown which looks after street children between 5 and 15. Since the outbreak of this devastating disease they have experienced a large influx of children left homeless with no one to care for them, having lost their parents and often their entire family. They have helped 175 orphans of Ebola since the crisis began but are entirely funded by voluntary donations.
As well as providing for and educating their children, the St George Foundation try to reunify those who may have become separated from family members and find permanent new homes for others. They also monitor the spread of the disease, educate the population of Western Rural to prevent it spreading, and work with UNICEF to distribute emergency packs.
