December campaign aims to raise money for Ebola orphans

Melqosh Mission International (MMI), a UK-based charity run by Faith Okrafo-Smart, is preparing to launch its Colour Purple International (CPI) Week, which will take place from 1 to 7 December. CPI aims to raise global awareness of the effects of Ebola on marginalised people, and to raise funds for children orphaned by the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone as a result of their parents/guardians dying of the disease.

MMI is planning to open an orphanage in Sierra Leone for children orphaned by the Ebola Virus, but needs funds to do so, hence the Colour Purple International Week’s #PurpleToStopEbola Campaign.

MMI wants people across the world to join this Campaign by: wearing purple during its Colour Purple International Week; posting pictures of themselves with their purple outfits on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites and with the hashtag #PurpleToStopEbola, and by donating £3 or more via

The #PurpleToStopEbola Campaign is just a continuation of work MMI has carried out over the past year, which has included running an Ebola Crisis Food Aid programme that donated 60 bags of rice, 50 gallons of oil, 2,000 packs of clean water and monetary gifts to amputees, their families, orphans and widows at 10 amputee locations/camps.
