The nine year long insurgency waged by extremist group Boko Haram across northern Nigeria and its borders has led to the killing of tens of thousands and the displacement of millions.
Street Child is currently working to help those affected by the insurgency to rebuild their lives and provide children with an education.
Emergency Rapid Appeal
On Tuesday morning, in Kroo Bay, one of Freetown’s largest slums, hundreds of houses were gutted by fire.
Kroo Bay is home to Street Child’s partner organisation, the We Yone foundation who provide schooling for children living in the slum.
Fortunately the We Yone school was saved but many of the children lost their homes and belongings to the fire.
We are appealing for donations to support our Sierra Leonean partner’s efforts to provide emergency clothing, toiletries and provisions to the affected families.
