The devasting mudslide of August 14th in Freetown, Sierra Leone leaves 500+ confirmed dead, many hundreds unaccounted for and 3,700 homeless children - 1058 under 5 years - in five affected communities and in need of immediate help.
Every day, social workers from CoDWelA are on the ground and we're now delivering fresh fish, vegetables, soap, toiletries to incident command centres for immediate distribution to the five affected communities. Help us do more.
Donate here and help us raise $5k to provide immediate relief for survivors of the mudslide giving vital food support and keeping a trained social work team in place at a weekly cost of $120.
We've raised $1030 so far and donations received over $5k will be held in a separate account to support credible recovery projects. Local delivery partners, Concern for Deprived Welfare Association (CoDWelA), Hope 4 Ebola Orphans Foundation, School Green Club,Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA), Hart voor Afrika.
