The Embassy of Sierra Leone, in collaboration with the National Organization of Sierra Leoneans in North America (NOSLINA), has identified a source for the air shipment of Ebola relief related materials and equipment to Sierra Leone at no cost*. The tentative air shipment date from the United States to Sierra Leone is December 2014.  This opportunity is open to all persons/organizations who want to send Ebola relief donations to Sierra Leone, as long as they meet the following minimum criteria:

 

  • All items must be received by the Embassy of Sierra Leone or NOSLINA no later than November 28, 2014

  • All donations will be consigned to the Chief Medical Officer at the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, as well as the Director General and Ambassador-At- Large in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (also, NOSLINA will closely track shipped items)

  • *Donors should be prepared to incur a nominal packing/freight-forwarding fee which equals $1.43 per kilo ($1.43 for every 2.2 pounds). (Example: a 500 pound pallet may cost $286.00)

  • For donors who are facing hardships with regard to the transporting of their donations to the Embassy, special pricing negotiations may be available through ground transport supporters.
