The House of Caring Sierra Leone (HOCSL) formerly MUSAC House of Caring was started in 2003. It engages in charitable and philanthropic acts that generates and sustains resources for the provision of a stable home, shelter, food, education, health services, without discrimination to orphans and vulnerable children, in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and Child Rights Act 2007 (Sierra Leone).
The Organization maintains an Orphanage Home for boys in Sierra Leone and participates in an Outreach Program for girls with the Women of Wonders Organization (WOW, SL).
It has 501(c)(3) charity status in the United States, is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales in the United Kingdom and is also registered as an Indigenous Local Voluntary Organization with the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs in Sierra Leone.
We are a dedicated and concerned group of individuals in the United States, United Kingdom, and Sierra Leone. We are committed to improving the well-being of orphans and vulnerable children in Sierra Leone.
We come from various professional backgrounds: academia, medicine and other health professions, journalism, business, public accounting, public administration,architecture, information technology, and others.
To facilitate successful outcomes for orphans and vulnerable children in Sierra Leone by providing them a stable and safe home environment, nutritious meals, quality education and health care, psychosocial support, opportunities for spiritual and character development, and by protecting them against abuse and exploitation.
Our actions at the House of Caring are guided by a sense of honesty, fairness, respectability, humility, discipline, enterprise, dignity, integrity, compassion and courage. We encourage our children at the House of Caring to embrace our values.
We guide the success of the children of Sierra Leone West Africa, who have been orphaned or made vulnerable because their parents or primary caregivers died during the Ebola Virus Disease epidemic, from HIV/AIDS, the 2017 Mudslides and other tragic events.
Before our children come to us, they have likely experienced many more risks and negative outcomes than their peers because of their inability to access education, healthcare and protective services. They may also have experienced social isolation because of stigma and discrimination.
House of Caring currently operates a rented family-oriented residential care facility (OrphanageHome) in Freetown, Sierra Leone. The facility currently supports 10 boys mostly between the ages of 6 and 18. Two of the boys who graduated from the Home are now gainfully employed. Two other boys who graduated this year reside at the facility until their exit plan is fully implemented.Read more
