Dear Compatriots and friends of Sierra Leone,
As you might already be aware, in the morning of Monday 14th August 2017, a major mudslide and flooding hit outlying areas of Freetown, Sierra Leone. More than six hundred bodies majority children and women have been discovered and buried in mass graves to obviate the potential for disease outbreak. Thousands are wounded and more displaced.
