Wellington Community Background

The children shown on this page are all orphans in Sierra Leone and live in and around the Wellington Community, a suburb of Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone.  Those living in the Wellington community are poor with income generating activities primarily consisting of subsistence gardening and petty trading.  During the civil war and subsequent rebel invasion of Freetown in 1999, hundreds of people were murdered, raped and tortured, leaving many of the children without parents or homes.

Within the Wellington community, Faith Baptist Church was founded in April 1988 at 1 Bowen Street.  The church was founded through the efforts of the Kissy Baptist Church, and is pastored by Rev. Samuel G.A. Kargbo.  Faith Baptist Church is active in ministering to the needs of disadvantaged children, many of them who have been orphaned and are in desperate need of help.  Faith Baptist Church is one of several faith-based organizations currently working in the Wellington community to alleviate the suffering of orphan children.  Faith Baptist Church continues to be a place where God’s hand is extended to help the little ones who need it most.

The Wellington Orphans
Through an on-site non-residential orphan program established by Pastor Kargbo, there are many child orphans in the Wellington community have been identified who’s living and social conditions are deplorable.   

The Wellington Orphans are the children shown on the Wellington Orphans page who are in need of GCPN sponsorship to holistically improve their living, social, educational, health and physical conditions. 

Rev. Samuel Kargbo and his wife Emma are both active in identifying and helping disadvantaged children, especially as it relates to administering and overseeing orphan aid.   They personally visit with the Wellington orphans and their caretakers (such as aunts, uncles or grandparents) on a weekly basis.  Rev. Kargbo holds a Bachelor of Theology Degree in Christian Education and a Masters of Education Degree in Educational Administration.  He and his wife have four children of their own, all boys.
