The 2020 Saunter was in memory of the Bishop of Sierra Leone, Bishop Yambasu.
On Sunday, October 25th, after 10:30 a.m. worship, we left from Morrow Church.
We brought bag lunches or bought something along the way.
We left from Maplewood and went through historic Union (approximately 10-12 miles).
We were socially distant and wore masks when appropriate.

Morrow Sierra Leone Partnership: Sponsor a Child Program
Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world, and our program enables Primary School children to have a year of schooling that they otherwise might not have.
In September 2018, in a very positive move, a new Government eliminated the Primary School Fees (about $25 per year). However, to attend school a child needs many other things, starting with a uniform, which is mandatory.
Such costs are beyond the reach of many in a country where the average income is a few hundred dollars a year and a composition book in remote areas can cost up to $7! ($75 supports one child for a year and pays for uniforms, a backpack, shoes, socks, stationery, sharpener, geometry set, crayons and pens)
