How your donations have helped
We are working in the most vulnerable areas of Freetown to help families whose houses were washed away in the early hours of 14 August.
As part of our START Fund emergency response, our partners have distributed food, clothes, hygiene kits and essential household supplies to 150 homeless families (approximately 900 people).
Our partners have also raised awareness of good sanitation and hygiene practices, to help people living in makeshift centres to stay healthy and well.
With your support, we are helping more than 200 children who lost everything in the mudslide. We are giving them school bags, uniforms, shoes, stationery and textbooks, so that they can continue their education.
More rains are expected in the coming weeks which may worsen conditions. Please give what you can to our Sierra Leone Mudslide Appeal today
