Freetown City Council Supports Victims Of The 11th September Disaster
Today we visited the sites of the 11th September 2022. With the support of an anonymous Sierra Leonean UK-based donor, we are supporting the victims and survivors.
First we met with Adama who lost her nephew and whose father was badly injured. The house next to Adama’s was completely destroyed so we had to visit the survivor at his friend’s house outside of the community. His bravery in the face of his loss was truly inspiring.
Our next site was where a seven year old girl and her four year old brother died when a wall collapsed on them on the morning of 11th September 2022. We offered words of comfort to the parents, with the hope that our gesture of solidarity would give a little solace to them.
We continue to advocate for Land Use Planning and an environmentally sensitive Building Permit Regime to save lives and property.
