The Sierra Leone Agape Voluntary Effort (SAVE) is a Christian 501(c)(3) Charity driven by unconditional (Agape) love of Christ to participate in God’s mission through a holistic demonstration of the powerful gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our board includes 10 volunteer members from across the US and UK who meet regularly to plan and evaluate the ministry.

Our Story

SAVE was originally formed as a bridge between dire humanitarian and spiritual needs created by the horrific civil war in Sierra Leone (1991-2002) and resources in the West.

Save works to meet those needs through mature, indigenous Christian ministries where our members have long-standing personal relationships.

We have remained active with this mandate since then through those original partnerships plus village church planting, Christian school support and periodic responses to catastrophic needs in the country — especially related to the epidemic of the Ebola virus and the horrendous Freetown mudslide.
