I have been asked by people how they can help the current situation in Sierra Leone; they have suggested sending supplies themselves straight to those in need, but logistically this is impractical. Following the link I posted last week which exhorted Sierra Leoneans to take the initiative, here is a project set up by Sierra Leoneans which does just that, by providing food to families affected by Ebola. Initially they provided food during the lockdown when it would have been very difficult for many thousands who survive on a hand to mouth basis, earning (hopefully) enough each day to buy the next meal. They are now supplying meals to patients and healthworkers.

(I have no direct knowledge of the charity and how it is run, but simply feel they are trying to do something worthwhile and have had some success already – I wish them luck.)
