Hey everyone, It’s time for a Winter Fundraiser for the Koinonia Trust. What could be more braver than a dip in the ice cold Atlantic Ocean on one of the most special days of the year? Christmas Day is a day for giving- unwrapping neatly wrapped presents under the Christmas tree and enjoying good food and classic Christmas movie favourites with our families. This year, while I look forward to the celebrations, I also want to take a little time to give something back to a cause that is close to my heart and I am asking you to please show a little support if you can.

The Koinonia trust continues to work amidst Covid-19. Unfortunately funding we had hoped to get internally in Liberia has been diverted to support the limited health services. Therefore, as we move in to 2021, the Koinonia Trust is facing uncertain times as resources are limited. Operational fees such as the rent on the compound will be due in early Spring. These premises is the epi-centre of where all the amazing project work takes place- right in the heart of the community. It is not just the hub for all operational activities but also homes to some of our most valuable assets- the project workers.
The Koinonia Trust continues to work in our local community amidst COVID-19 and the donor support we receive at this time is crucial.
Unfortunately the core funding we had hoped to get in the second half of 2020 from organization’s internally in Liberia has been diverted to support the limited health services and we now have very little resources and funds going in to 2021.
If you could help by donating, organising a fundraiser or supporting us in anyway please contact us.

The construction of additional outside classrooms for the Homework Club. The structure is designed so it can be taken down and re-erected if we ever have to move but gives us more space to accommodate more kids.
The money raised by Terri from the sale of Easter chicks purchased bibs and cones for the Koinonia Trust Football Team. They are now back training and this has given them a boost while the study classes remain furloughed.
“For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you under His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.”
When I think of the promises of God for our protection and safety, I gladly rest under His wings
Reflections from Momo
Greetings from the west coast of Liberia a small country that has been in the midst of one crisis after the other. When I look at the many obstacles during the month under review, I am thankful to God for His grace and love. The love of God has been tangible in all we were doing, what a loving Father we have.
Frances left Liberia to go home for Ezekiel’s birth and Anna’s wedding before the COVID 19 spread into Liberia. It was a total relief for the team here that she had got home on one of the last scheduled flights that had left.
Last week saw the distribution of 200 shoe boxes to local children who also heard about the greatest gift Jesus. Thank you to Operation Christmas Child who is part of Samaritans purse. A big thank you to Momo and our team on the ground along with community volunteers who did the distribution.
Today we did a workshop for a youth organisation who are living beside us….they are called Brighter minds for a progressive future. We taught on the practice of self reflection, the defined roles in a team and communication skills
