Water supplies of the “Don Bosco Mudslide Village”

After the landslide disaster, the association organized rapid relief for the victims of the landslide in order to immediately alleviate the greatest need on site. In a newly built settlement, access to clean water was guaranteed by financing a follow-up project.

After the landslide near Freetown in August 2017, the association supported the Catholic community Don Bosco in accommodating 300 affected children. They were supplied with the most important goods and supported in processing the trauma.
