Footprints Missions was created in 2009. In October of 2009, a group of medical professionals and laypersons made a 10 day trip to Sierra Leone, West Africa. During that visit, this team served patients at the Magbenteh Community Hospital in Makeni and provided clinical care to numerous patients in remote villages.
Each year following, groups visited Sierra Leone on medical missions trips. Until February 2014 when the West African Ebola virus epidemic was the most widespread outbreak of Ebola virus disease in history—causing major loss of life and socioeconomic disruption in the region, mainly in the countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.
With thousands of children now homeless and orphans surviving their parents, Footprints Missions constructed The Makankisa Child Care Centre in 2017-2018. The centre opened its doors June 29th, 2018. The centre is home to 20 children orphaned by the Ebola Outbreak.
Medical missions trips resumed in 2019 and the Child Care Centre is expanding to house more children. Learn more at http://www.footprintsmissions.org/
