Supporting the fight against Ebola in Sierra Leone
CODEP has been working with the community in Waterloo, a city of 40,000 people, for more than ten years, since the end of Sierra Leone’s civil war. The charity has built a library and has focused on training teachers and providing the city’s schools with books.
As it is already on the ground, CODEP is ideally placed to help deal with the Ebola outbreak. It has been asked to take the lead in training people how to protect themselves against the spread of the virus, and help in the purchase and distribution of protective materials.
You can help too. To donate online, go to www.justgiving.com. Protective gloves cost £5, personal protective equipment £23, a large bucket £12.50 and chlorine is £10 per gallon.
