The CRC turns 20 today! Twenty years ago, the Child Reintegration Centre was founded by Bishop John Yambasu and the UMC church, with a mission to rescue children orphaned or abandoned due to the Sierra Leone civil war. Today and throughout the coming week, the CRC is celebrating the hundreds of children and their families who have been lifted out of extreme poverty through the work of the CRC and its devoted staff. Join us to celebrate an amazing journey of faith, courage, and love, as we envision a brighter future for the most vulnerable children and families in Sierra Leone.
Bishop Yambasu, CRC Director Olivia Fonnie, the CRC staff, CRC children and their families, and other dignitaries gathered at the CRC to formally kick off the celebration this morning, see pics and video below.
