Our history

Founders Isatta & Sam Kallon – we are each other’s keepers

In 1999, Sierra Leone and Kosovo were both in a state of civil war. Isatta and Sam Kallon were both affected, having to flee Sierra Leone to safety. Whilst in Plymouth, Isatta saw the need of Kosovan families who had been through a similar experience, albeit in another region of the world, and decided, with her husband, to do something about it.
