In West Africa’s Sierra Leone, devastating floods have triggered mudslides that have left at least 200 people dead and 600 missing. More than 9,000 people have been injured or displaced.
Aid for Africa member Action Africa, based in Washington, DC, has been working on the ground with local partners in Sierra Leone for many years. With its partners in Sierra Leone, Action Africa is working to help survivors in and around Freetown.
Action Africa will ship a 40-foot container with needed supplies to Sierra Leone before the end of August. Action Africa needs donations of canned and dry foods, over-the-counter medications, vitamin supplements, blankets and clothing.
