Taking action to stop the spread of COVID-19

Our emergency response in Sierra Leone aims to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus and its devastating effects. Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water.

Safe Water…a story of hope!

At World Vision we believe that failure to ensure the safety of drinking water may expose communities especially children to the risk of outbreaks of waterborne and infectious diseases. This is a story of how water brought change to Gelehun and Fairoh in Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leone

Children in Sierra Leone face many obstacles including poverty and high rates of preventable diseases to survive. Additionally, the 11-year bloody civil war (which ended in 2002), devastating Ebola outbreak and the current effects of climate have left an already poor population much more vulnerable.

Our team has been working in Sierra Leone since 1996, during the civil war. We partner with local actors and the Government to improve the well-being of all children.

Through our  work in 25 Area Development Programs, we are striving to improve the health and nutrition, access to education and protection of all children as we empower families and communities to care for the most vulnerable children.
