Slim Lot of Good

The Schools and Health Foundation were kindly invited to Garryduff Sports complex on Wednesday 27th April by Dr. Brian Wiseman. Brian’s daughter Niamh is one of the students from Scoil Mhuire Cork who is travelling to Sierra Leone in May. Brian is part of a fitness group called Fat Boy, Slims led by Paul Sheridan. The group generously donated €530 to the Foundation. The funds were handed over on their last night of training for the season and the occasion was also attended by former Scoil Mhuire girls Ailbhe Boland, Sarah Healy and Leah Soden. The girls spoke beautifully of their trips to Africa and their intention to keep in touch with the Foundation. (Report by Jackie Manley)

Monrovia School to Open at Easter

St. Mukasa School in Dwarzon, Margibi County, Liberia will be completed in four weeks time according to the contractor. John Mitchell visited the site on 12 Feb and he believes that it will be the best school built so far by SHF and its founders. It will have electricity and hopefully a good water supply. Provision has been made in the design to add a second floor which can be used in the future for a secondary school. The school is under the auspices of the Catholic Archdiocese of Monrovia and caters for children of all beliefs. The teachers are well-trained and 20 of them will cater for over 200 children.
