Credit Card Refunds Fraud Investigators


       Our mission is to increase opportunities and transform lives of suffering and vulnerable children in Sierra Leone and Cameroon through providing the access to education and normal living standards as well as supplying healthy food, clothes and other essentials. Simultaneously we help to improve the natural environment in the North West of England through recycling and resale of household goods supplying people with essential merchandise at affordable price.


       By 2015 build five orphanages for suffering and unprotected children in Sierra Leone bringing them under the shelter of trained loving carers. By the end of 2010 find child sponsors for 50 vulnerable children in Sierra Leone and by 2015 increase the number of sponsored children in Cameroon and Sierra Leone up to 250. At the same time increase the tonnage of recycled furniture, clothing and other household goods up to 300 tonnes a year improving the natural environment in the North West of England as well as raise additional funds from private and public sponsors. By 2015 increase the supply of healthy food, clothes and other essentials to children in Sierra Leone and Cameroon up to 5,000 kilograms a year.
