URGENT APPEAL FUNDS FOR VICTIMS OF THE FLOOD DISASTER AND MUD-SLIDES IN SIERRA LEONE
Greetings in the Mighty name of The Lord An appeal to our Brothers and Sisters around the world.
They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.
Poor little rich Sierra Leone has been through so much in the past quarter of a century.
War came and hundreds of thousands of life lost; men women
children maimed; and properties destroyed.
Hundreds of thousands fled the country, and thousands more became
While the country was still recovering from the aftermath of the devastating war, not too long after that, Ebola came, killing many more thousands, and taking a toll on the infrastructure of the country.
Now Flood in Freetown, similar destruction. Sierra Leoneans are once again on the Crying Path.
Disaster has struck again, in Sierra Leone just barely two years after the deadly Ebola pandemic griped the country, and on the back of many years of civil war that left hundreds of thousands of men, women and children dead, maimed and homeless; and many thousands have to flee the country.
Now we wake up to the devastating news of a natural disaster of landslides, hill top mountains collapsing and torrential rain, that is expected to last through the end of the rainy season till October.
As is being witnessed through the news and social media, this natural disaster of flooding and land slide is terrible and has adversely destroyed lives and untold properties.
In just under three days, over an estimated seven hundred (700) lives have already been lost. Houses and properties have been destroyed and washed away.
The survivors especially women, children and babies are living under terrible conditions.
Authorities and volunteer workers are still recovering dead bodies from the mud and rubles. With the rainy season still to last through October, the situation looks grim and daunting.
Our appeal to our brothers and sisters, children of God in the diaspora and beyond, is that we come to the aide of this challenged country, Sierra Leone, and HELP by lending a hand to the victims and survivors who are greatly affected, by doing the following QUICKLY before more lives are lost:
1. Contributions in form of funds (money) to provide immediate relief on the ground locally for about 150 families with around 5-7 members to a family.
This will help to provide them with:
a) Food; b) Clothes; c) Shelter (Tents, mattresses, beddings) to see them at least through to the end of the rainy season in October 2017.
2. Thereafter, we look to setting up more permanent solution to the plight of these victims who have lost everything.
Thank you very much for your generous donations and contributions.
May your swift response to the plight and suffering of these unfortunate brothers and sisters of ours in Sierra Leone, be generous and bring you great reward.
May God richly bless you all.
