On March 24th, 2021, a terrible fire broke out at one of the densely populated slum communities in Freetown, Sierra Leone, Susan's Bay. The entire community was burnt down to ashes and it is believed that more than 5,000 people were left homeless as over 600 houses were destroyed. Many children are believed to be missing and separated from their parents while thousands have lost their livelihoods as most of the residents in the affected community were involved in petty trading.

With funds from the GlobalGiving platform and other local sources, AID Sierra Leone provided food, water, and clothing, to victims especially women and children who were the most affected. The organization also provided some counseling support to the victims and survivors to enable them to recover from the trauma and also keep their hopes alive.

We say a big thank you to all those who contributed their hard-earned cash to this project and we look forward to providing additional support in the near future.
