“This picture means so much to my *heart* to see our FIRST student athlete arrived from Sierra Leone to Boston,USA to attend High Mowing School and be part of their soccer program with #BlackRockFc

I personally can’t express how happy I’m right at this moment to see Juan taking steps towards her dream.

Please visit Heart-Shaped-Hands Foundation and just us on this journey #HeartShapedHands

 

After a childhood accident, Juan left arm was amputated, but that hasn’t held her back. She is currently competing in 2020-21 Paralympic Games in Tokyo!

Juan is a 15-year-old girl from humble beginnings in Freetown, Sierra Leone, where she lives with her mother, father and two older siblings. Her father does agriculture and her mother is unemployed. Juan loves sports — her favorites are soccer and track, and she excels in the classroom.

Through some connections and friends of ours, Juan was offered a scholarship to the prestigious High Mowing School in Wilton, New Hampshire. This well-known Waldorf boarding school has awarded Juan a full academic scholarship and a spot on their soccer team. Her dreams of a becoming a lawyer are well on the way to coming true! Her family never could have afforded this life-changing opportunity, without our help.

But here’s the catch, there are additional costs that her scholarship won’t cover — and her family cannot afford — like flights to/from Sierra Leone, health insurance, a phone, school supplies, clothes, and toiletries.

That’s where you come in — can you help us give Juan this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Juan is an inspiration — and she needs our helping hands.

To cover this school year’s additional expenses, we need to raise $10,200 for her. Help us ensure Juan is set for success by making a tax-deductible donation to the HeartShapedHands Foundation today.

On behalf of Juan — and all the future young athletes she will inspire — please accept our heartfelt thanks in advance.

Sallu Kamuskay uses his phone to engage on social media, under the name ‘’Salone Messenger’. He Co-Founded the Salone Messenger platform after his experience of the war, Ebola, and injustices. According to him, silence was the root cause of war, and of many social injustices, we continue to face as a nation. In 2013, during the Ebola crisis, Sallu Kamuskay took the risk and volunteered to fight Ebola. He spent some months in both safe and unsafe places; helping the victims and telling their sad stories. The election in 2018, left a divided country with communities fighting on tribal lines. This inspired Sallu Kamuskay to serve as the coordinator of the United Sierra Leone peace concert, which was organized in 4 major parts of the country, targeting violent communities and troubled youth. Sallu Kamuskay led a group of entertainers, activists, and organizations across the country on a peace tour, a program supported by the European Union, United Sierra Leone, Africa Union, ECOWAS, and the Messeh Leone Trust. Sallu Kamuakay has also served as a staff writer for the Hidden Voices Magazine.
Over the years, Sallu Kamuskay has been using his Techno phone to be able to tell stories, the phone he used to tell the story of Gbessay during Ebola who was admitted at one of the Ebola treatment centers after rumors that she had Ebola when the actual sickness was ulcer, she was almost abandoned at the treatment canter with no medication provided to her. She could have died. Sallu told the story via social media and was able to secure funding from the United Sierra Leone to buy her medication and advocated for her. She was later discharged and taken home, He did the same to a patient that died and was abandoned in the street, Sallu Kamuskay used his phone and shared the message across, the corps was later taken and buried. It could have been more disaster without his voice. The story of late America Stress 3-year-old daughter. The hero’s daughter was abandon after his father's death. He shared her sad story and was able to get a sister who has taken the child as her own and is currently providing her with educational support. The article of America Stress can be read on the link below http://ayvnewspaper.com/index.php/k2-categories/item/7350-america-stress-a-hero-to-recognize.
Sallu Kamuskay feels the stories of Gbessay, America stress and that of many others need to be told. The media house we have cannot better tell these stories, they are better reporters than telling human interest stories. He created the Salone Messenger platform and brought together passionate storytellers to be able to tell these compelling stories.
