Flood Relief in Sierra Leone: 5 prospective organisations to donate to

 

If like thousands of people across the world you have been affected by  images of the aftermath of  recent flooding and landslide in Sierra Leone, and wish to make a contribution, I have listed below five organisations/groups that you could make monetary and non-monetary contributions through. Please note that there are several other groups/organisations who are equally capable of assisting with the process and this is a mere guide.

Flood Relief for Sierra Leone by Kiki James-Gillman and Nadia Kamara

Tomorrow my sister Mary-Ann Kaikai of Madam Wokie, will accompany Nadia Kamara  and several other Sierra Leoneans to distribute emergency  supplies; such as hygiene products, towels, blankets, food and water to women, children and other survivors of the disaster. A Go Fund Me page was therefore setup to solicit funds to assist with the process and so far $4,248 of the $2,000 goal has been reached. To ensure transparency and accountability, a summary and receipts of donations purchased will also be provided to all donors on the Go Fund me account. Donate to this nonprofit  

Please note that non-monetary items are also welcome and can be deposited at Madam Wokie Ltd, 14 C Syke Street, Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Shawa Shero, Miss Sierra Leone UK 2017

Shawa Shero, Miss Sierra Leone UK 2017, is coordinating non-monetary donations in London,  which will be sent to beneficiaries as soon as possible.  She is therefore calling on all Sierra Leoneans in the UK to give whatever non-monetary donations they can to help the flood victims and their families settle back into their different communities. Accepted donations include old/new clothes, kids clothing, toiletries, food and over the counter pain relief drugs. The date for collection is:
