The Mama T. Trust Foundation has fed about 4,000 children while commemorating the Day of the African Child in six schools in Western Freetown.
The six schools included, the Milton Margai School for the Blind, School for the Deaf and Dumb, Aberdeen and Wilberforce Municipal Schools, FAWE, Saint Thomson School and the Prince of Wales Secondary School.
The Mama T. Trust is a foundation in memory of the late Adjie Herriette Thomas Joaque, who used to feed children around the Prince of Wales School. Upon her death, the children, grand-children and other relatives decided to continue her legacy and follow in her footsteps.
The Head of the Trust, Nora Onike Thomas, said, “The Trust Foundation caters for the welfare of school going children and realizes that contributing to their upbringing paves the way for a better tomorrow.
She added that they get support from individual family members but they also welcome support and contributions in both cash and kind.
“If children are not given food to eat they won’t learn and grow well. We want to leave a legacy for the current younger generation to emulate in the near future,” Madam Thomas said.
The Head Teacher of the Aberdeen Municipal School, Battu Johnson, said most of the children go to school without food because most of the children are living in homes that can’t provide food for them in the morning.
The Foundation’s Public Relations Officer, Eddie Thomas, called on the government, companies, business entities and individuals to support the Mama T. Trust Foundation to continue with the good works.
“We must take good care of our future leaders so that they grow well to take up leadership,” he said.
Mariama Sesay, a pupil at the School for the Blind, expressed her delight for the gesture as she said when she was informed that Mama T. Trust members were going to feed them again, “I was just thinking of last year events when they provided delicious jollof rice”.
