Soroptomists contribute to £1 million fund

Members of Girvan’s Soroptomists have joined their colleagues across the world in celebrating the reaching of a £1 million fundraising target to help women and children in Sierra Leone.

The local ladies contributed to the appeal fund which was aimed at alleviating the legacy of a bloody ten-year civil war in the West African nation.

By providing healthcare, housing, education, training and childcare, Project Sierra is improving the lives of some of the most deprived women and children in the country.
