Colour Purple International Month
Melqosh is set to colour the world purple with its Colour Purple International Month, themed #PurpleToStopEbola Campaign; in a bid to raise global awareness of the effects of the Ebola on marginalised people and to raise funds for children orphaned by the Ebola virus . According to UNICEF, over 7,000 children have been orphaned by Ebola in Sierra Leone. And to aid the marginalised amputees who are experiencing extreme poverty as a result of Ebola. They are unable to beg on streets to survive, because of the 'no contact' rule.
Melqosh Mission International has spearheaded several missions to combat the consequences of the Ebola plague in Sierra Leone since July. Given our experience of helping orphans, the charity is set to extend its arm to aid children orphaned by Ebola. They are our FUTURE, we all can help solidify their future by partaking in this years' Colour Purple International WEEK. Join us in making the campaign GLOBAL & VIRAL. #PurpledToStopEbola.
Get your friends, families, work mates, church members, acquaintances involved; its very simple: wear purple between the 1st-31stDec and donate as you feel led.

The charity is in the process of establishing an Orphanage in Sierra Leone for children orphaned by the Ebola Virus but needs funds to do so, hence the Colour Purple International Week – Purpled To Stop Ebola Campaign. We are calling out to the world to join this Campaign, wear purple between the 1st December -7thDecember; post pics of your purple ensemble on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social sites and with this hashtag comment : #PurpledToStopEbola and donate here.
£20,000 will be used to ship and clear two 40ft container load of food, clothing, personal protective equipments, other items and execute our Annual Christmas Mission; which will include our new beneficiaries- the Ebola orphans.
£30,000 will go towards the 1st stage of refurbishing a building we acquired and to fund the 1st quarter of the orphanage.
Past / Current Initiatives:
We reached a significant landmark by establishing the first IT Academy and Supplementary School in Sierra Leone for children of the amputees and amputees (including orphans of deceased amputees) in January 2014; to provide them with more educational, life-changing opportunities and a competitive edge.
Melqosh also provides Educational Sponsorship to children of marginalised war afflicted amputees and orphans of the deceased amputees, to enable them to gain better opportunities and lead meaningful lives (as their disadvantaged parents cannot pay their school/ college/university fees). In addition, we have been rendering Empowerment Sessions to the amputees since 2008, to renew their mind-set, revive their self-worth and regenerate a hope for their future despite their disabilities. In the last six years, we have also been providing Medicare, clothing, crutches, food and monetary gifts to war afflicted amputees and their children, widows and orphans of deceased amputees in the provinces and seven Amputee camps in the Western Area during our annual or bi-yearly missions in Sierra Leone.
