Flooding and mudeslide in Freetown, Sierra Leone.



As a team we woke up on  August 14th with a heavy heart.  Over 300 people dead due to torrential rain causing mud slide and flooding in Regent and other places in Freetown. Many people are displaced and now living in school waiting for assistance. Unidentified dead bodies were buried today in mass graves at Waterloo. The President has declared seven days of mourning starting from yesterday.
Please Ottawa and Gatineau residents, come out to the Fundraiser which we have been planning for the 19th August to show your support to Sierra Leone.
