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.

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.
