Sierra Leone Flood Disaster Relief Fund
Dear Friends of the Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link, we have all been shocked and saddened by the news and the pictures of the devastation in Freetown Sierra Leone and the tragic loss of life caused by the torrential rain and landslips. Hundreds of people have been killed and thousands made homeless as torrents of rain and mud raged through Regent and other settlements close to Freetown in Sierra Leone on Monday night. Entire families and houses were swept away. Survivors were trapped in the mud, amongst the wreckage and in the flood waters whilst the rain continued to pour down.
Fortunately the village of Hastings has not been as badly affected as areas higher in the hills but the impact of the disaster will affect everybody on thee peninsular. Sierra Leone was already in a fragile state post-Ebola and the Hastings community will find it difficult to cope with this still unfolding disaster, we need to get help to those in need as soon as possible. We are launching this appeal to raise funds and working with our partner charities, the Hastings Association Sierra Leone and Hastings Association UK to identify what is urgently needed be it food aid, medical aid or shelter and clothing. This is an Urgent Appeal to help save lives.
Please donate to the Friendship Link’s Sierra Leone Flood Disaster Appeal by going to our MyDonate page www.mydonate.bt.com/charities/hastingssierraleonefriendshiplink or by going to our website www.hastingshastings.org.uk
