The Beginning

The Jamil and Nyanga Jaward Foundation came across Gbassay, a widow sleeping in a neighbour's living room with her five children. Gbassay sells  mangoes and other fruits depending on the season, to feed her five children and at the same time trying to complete a house started by her husband who died of Ebola in 2012.


The Jamil and Nyanga Jaward Foundation decided to complete the house to provide a home for her family and start a business for her, so she can better support her family and the children's education. The Foundation, also provided financial support for the older daughter to attend classes and re-sit her high school exams.

Ongoing Work

The floors needed floating, the walls required plastering inside and outside, the entire roof needed ceiling. Stairs needed to be constructed. Doors were needed on the shop front, and all external and internal parts of the house. Windows were required and finished with painting to all internal and external walls.

Update on Finished House

After a few months of hard work,  resources and team effort to coordinate this project, the Foundation in a handover ceremony, handed over the keys to the completed house and a stocked shop to the widow and her five children. Indeed God completes His projects.
