SLWT has played a key role in supporting the UK Sierra Leonean diaspora task force with the launch of the UK Ebola Recruit campaign and roadshows.
As at 6th October 2014 we had distributed 500 (300 during the lock down, and 35 to the Mape Community this week). SLWT had supplied 165 of its targeted 600 handwashing stations. 125 of the hand washing stations have been distributed through the Freetown City Council to poor and deprived communities around Freetown. A further 40 hand washing stations are being distributed through the National Council of Paramount Chiefs to two needy chiefdoms in Moyamba District (Ribbi and Timdale) and to parts of Port Loko District which is at risk of becoming the new epicentre of the outbreak.
As at 10th September 2014, SLWT had distributed 875 raincoats to “Okada” riders; 750 of these were distributed in Freetown. In early September, we received an urgent and desperate appeal to provide raincoats to drivers in Kono District; this was as a result of 2 drivers being infected with the Ebola virus. Thanks to your support SLWT was able through its partners on the ground to immediately respond and 125 raincoats were dispatched to “Okada” riders in Kono.Read More
