We are cautiously optimistic, but while these trends hold, the Sierra Leone Alliance has determined that it will continue the food program at least until the end of May. By May we will reassess if the food program is still needed. We hope it will not be, and that our brothers and sisters in Sierra Leone can start embarking towards long-term recovery after suffering the devastating effects of this terrible disease for nearly a year.
Meanwhile, we will continue to serve Sierra Leone this way during this epidemic, through the provision of food, by the grace of God.
As Dr. Myron Glick wrote in a recent email to many of you, our supporters, "God bless the members of each organization who are working on the ground in Sierra Leone to carry out this program. They are being the 'hands and feet' of Jesus to some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world. May God be with each one and their families and encourage them in this work.
