Online PR News – 29-May-2011 – – Cobra Group made news by joining hands with a couple to raise money for underprivileged children in Sierra Leone.

Nigel Eastwood and his wife Vijaya, who have been involved with the charity work done by a charity organisation, were helped a lot by the Cobra Foundation. The organisation, based in rural Lancashire, England comprises of a small dedicated team of volunteers and looks after the welfare and education of a number of children who have been orphaned through war or disease throughout the Kailahun District in Sierra Leone, Africa. Sierra Leone, the land of diamond mining, is bugged with issues relating to poverty and is also the twelfth-lowest-ranked country on the Human Development Index and eighth-lowest on the Human Poverty Index, suffering from endemic corruption and suppression of the press. It's to help the underprivileged kids of Sierra Leone, especially the kids in the badly affected Kailahun District that the Lancashire-based organisation was formed, in 2006. It all began with a team of individuals visiting the Kailahun District of Sierra Leone for three weeks. Two years later, in 2008, another team, of eight people with a mix of different skills returned to Kailahun and rebuilt two school buildings. The organisation works closely with the Church, Education Department, Hospitals and the Schools of Kailahun and strives to make a difference in the lives of many children and their families by providing education, health care, nutrition and shelter. Nigel Eastwood and Vijaya have been involved with this charity organisation in a very dedicated manner. Quite recently they even took part in a porting event conducted in Manchester aimed at fundraising for charities. Their objective was to raise £3000.00 to buy a vehicle to transport the children in Kailahun.

Cobra has lent support to the efforts of Nigel and his wife Vijaya by sponsoring them at the sporting event.
