The Black Star Action Network International (BSANI Movement), Gullah Nation Of North America (GNONA), and the United Afrikan Coalition for Justice & Human Rights (UAC) have partnered up to form the Freetown Collective and organize the Freetown Relief Fund to provide emergency aid to the families and communities affected by the devastating and deadly August 14th Mudslide Flood in various areas Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone.

Donations contributed to the Freetown Relief Fund will be spent on providing food, clothing, and shelter for as many victims of this natural disaster that has left over 400 dead and counting, irreparable damage to property, and communities in emergency crisis as I type these words.

The Freetown Collective is urgently calling on YOU to assist us by spreading the word and giving what YOU can to provide what funds you can to the Freetown Relief Fund.

Thanks in advance,

I am Janetta Rhodes the Logistics coordinator for Black Star Action Network International and I'm happy to announce that the contributions made to the Freetown Emergency Relief Fund for the mudslide and flood victims in Freetown, Sierra Leone will be withdrawn by me and sent via wire transfer to our BSANI organizers on the ground of Freetown, Sierra Leone who will then implement the following.

Funds raised will be designated to assist surviving victims in two areas.

1. Black Star Action Network International is set to assist in education by providing tuition to a number of children who have been affected by the mudslide and flood with school fees.

Unfortunately the children weren't able to start school when it began 2 weeks ago, but because of your concern and generosity we can assist some of the students.

2. Black Star Action Network International will assist in providing food through the purchasing of native grown rice and gifting it to the displaced families who have been affected by the mudslide and flood in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Thanks for the support and we're looking forward to giving updates.
