The Founders

In January 2001, three people
came together; Dr Adonis Abboud, Shellac Sonny Davies and
Barbara Bangura, and launched a Charitable Organization called
Pikin Bizness. The first three years, in collaboration with WFP,
the US Embassy and UNAMSIL, with sponsorship from DSTV/SL,
a helicopter was flown country-wide during the Christmas
holiday on each of these years, distributing gifts ranging from
sweets, drinks, radio sets, school bags, to educational materials
to children. Caritas Makeni [a Catholic NGO], International
Medical Corp, [IMC] and other NGOs helped identify the
children. Four years later, in 2005, having spotted a campaign
launched by the Exclusive Newspaper, advertising and
appealing for help for Abu Bakarr Jalloh, a six year old boy with
a hole in his heart, Pikin Bizness embarked on a larger campaign
targeting mainly children with heart deficiencies, especially
children with holes in their hearts and other related diseases.
After the campaign, Pikin Bizness then embarked on a larger
campaign in the country to raise funds in order to save the life
of a young boy who was about to die.
