Sierra Leone Mudslide Relief:
What's Happening and How to Help

 

Mudslides and floods in Sierra Leone have killed hundreds of people and have caused widespread damage in and near the capital city, Freetown. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors' immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts on the ground. The projects below, as part of GlobalGiving's Sierra Leone Mudslide Relief Fund, will provide emergency funding to international and locally driven relief efforts, providing food, medicine, and other essential supplies to help survivors.

Give Now

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.

Provide Flood and Landslide Relief in Sierra Leone
On Monday, August 14th, 2017, rain and torrential flooding and landslides resulted in the largest single-day disaster in the history of Sierra Leone. Hundreds are confirmed dead. Thousands have lost their homes and property. Many of those affected are impoverished, and not able to recover on their own. This project helps provide short-term assistance and long-term aid to restore hope and normalcy to those in need who were affected by the disaster.
