After a two days assessment visit and engagement with Karene children and stakeholders of that remote part of Sierra Leone, the President of CFN Miss Paulina Bangura and Master Hussein Muckson Sesay together with their ministry chaperones decided that Kamakwie, though remote, is the perfect venue; all in furtherance of ongoing national policy of ensuring social services and sensitisation on social welfare policies/laws are accessible to all rural areas countrywide.
Accompanying photos also show CFN President Paulina Bangura addressing pupils of the Wesleyan School in Kamakwie. A new CFN branch for Karene is part of the ongoing plan to boost the numerical strength of CFN in Sierra Leone.
