Pro Labore Dei in Sierra Leone started in 2008 have continued to bring sucour to many faces, by feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, educating the young as we have a nursery school in this regard. One of such earlier beneficiaries is Agness Mosery, a blind lady who has graduated from the university as a teacher. We also give accommodation to the homeless; visit the sick and the imprisoned. Other activities of Pro Labore Dei in Sierra Leone include fishing clients, and empowering them with skilled training exercise. One of such earlier beneficiaries is Tom Bende trained in weaving.
We also feed the clients with the word of God and prayer. For instance, many clients come for prayer every Thursday. There is also devotion to the Holy Spirit which they attend every Tuesday. The widows also have their own prayer day on Fridays. Therefore, apart from taking care of the physical needs of the clients, in Sierra Leone, they are also given the spiritual food regularly
