Our work in Sierra Leone
Muslims make up approximately sixty percent of the population of Sierra Leone that is struggling to rebuild after a decade long civil war that ended in 2002. Significant numbers of people displaced during the war, former combatants and victims of the war’s intense violence have all found it difficult to acquire stable livelihoods.
Poverty is pervasive in this country which has been designated the poorest in Africa, and perhaps the world (despite having large reserves of diamonds). Low agricultural output has lead to high levels of food insecurity in the country. The unavailability of adequate health care and education facilities have intensified the privation of the people of Sierra Leone, as they deal with rampant malaria infections which are the major cause of death of children under the age of five.
Donate for water, food, medicines,
The number of vulnerable people is increasing as the humanitarian crisis deepens. In many parts of the world where we are working, there is need from the health system, water supplies, food, clothing, medicine and much more.
