Students at Notre Dame High School in Southport are celebrating the school’s 63rd year of being a Sisters of Mercy School – and what exactly that means.
They spent their Monday learning about Sierra Leone, a country in West Africa. Their focus, the small village of Mokaneh, where hundreds of people die each year from diseases related to contaminated drinking water.
In an effort to support these people, students at Notre Dame will work in partnership with a foundation out of Buffalo to raise the $5,000 to build a well in the village.
The goal is to raise the money by Christmas.
