Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone street scene

Sierra Leone, located on the west coast of Africa, is a country of similar size and population to Ireland. Our main focus areas are improving the health and nutrition of the poorest communities and promoting women's rights. A significant recent focus has been the Ebola response programme.

We we work in close co-operation with the Government of Sierra Leone, the UN and a range of non-governmental organisations to support long-term reconstruction and development.
