On August 13th, a devastating mudslide swept the capital region of Freetown, killing over 400 people and displacing approximately 3,000. Officials fear that this number may actually be significantly higher, as over 600 people are currently reported as missing.
Many of the families and orphans we serve–and thousands more–remain without food, clean water, and shelter.
Right now, our Local Heroes in Sierra Leone are working diligently to assist those who need it most. Together, we can partner with them to share the love of Christ by providing the people of Sierra Leone with a timely and effective response.
Our immediate hope is to provide 300 relief kits to vulnerable community members. Once we have evaluated the extent of the damage and the needs of the children and community, we will develop a plan for long-term restoration.
You can help by providing relief kits ($63) containing clean water supplies, food rations, shelter materials, and basic hygiene items. Please designate your donation to “Sierra Leone Relief Kit.”
