Support our Emergency Appeal to help those impacted by the flooding in Freetown
On Monday 14th August, over 500 Sierra Leoneans died following horrific landslides and torrential rainfall. Thousands more have been left with nothing.
Our teams are on the ground providing support to those impacted by the devastating flooding and mudslides. Already we provided over 78,000 emergency food packages, including clean water, and provided over 5,000 people with clothing packages.
The UK government is also supporting our emergency response on the ground. International Development Secretary, Priti Patel announced: "Funding will go directly towards UK charities working tirelessly on the ground, such as Street Child". Read the article in The Guardian to learn more.
Donations will go towards providing emergency relief and long-term recovery support. We will ensure your donation will be spent as quickly and as well as possible supporting our excellent social and livelihood teams in Sierra Leone. Please give what you can.
We believe every child has a right to a safe home and an education.
From building schools and training teachers, to connecting orphaned or abandoned children with families and giving parents in poverty business grants, our sustainable projects are all about giving the world's poorest children a chance.
Street Child started in Sierra Leone in 2008 working with a small number of street children. Since then we have helped over 60,000 children to go to school and enabled thousands of families to generate sustainable incomes so that their children can stay in education. During the Ebola crisis, Street Child helped over 20,000 Ebola orphans, providing emergency support and connecting thousands with families. Today, Street Child works in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nepal and Nigeria with a current emphasis on education in emergencies and girls' education.
