17-year-old smiling-all-the-time Moses Kolleh died on November 13th from Lassa fever, a treatable disease. In Liberia, however, necessary diagnosis is often slow and medication is sparse or non-existent. In honor of a life well-lived and cut so drastically short, SHINE announces the initiation of the Moses Kolleh Memorial Fund. All donations will help the children receive medical care in a timely fashion. Two of the older kids are in need of medical care as we speak. Can you contribute to Moses’s fund? You can do so at the online store. We lost Moses too soon, but his memorial can protect his brothers and sisters.

A team of five flew to W. Africa to visit Rainbow Town. Trip highlights include: getting to know the unique story and personality of each child through a story-writing project, building a latrine, setting up a small chicken farm, giving the children new bikes and soccer gear, checking the children’s progress in classes, laughing with Mother Feeta, and spending time on the beach with the Rainbow Town college students. See photos from the trip on the Rainbow Town Facebook page.
