Sierra Leone Mudslide Relief Fund

$2,635 of $250,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 6 months
Created August 16, 2017
We are the Republic of Sierra Leone's diplomatic mission to the United States (Embassy of Sierra Leone) and we are located 1701 19th Street Northwest, Washington D.C., DC 20009-1605. The current ambassador is H.E. Bockari Kortu Stevens

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that continuous rain on the night of August 13th, 2017 has resulted in massive flooding and mudslide in many parts of the Western Area in Sierra Leone. This flooding and mudslide have devastated many communities, destroyed settlements and brought deaths and severe injuries to many people. The total number of people affected is still been compiled.

The Government of Sierra Leone has taken immediate steps to minimize the suffering of those affected and continues to provide emergency assistance and support to the displayed and injured.

As a response to this national disaster, the Embassy of Sierra Leone in Washington DC, USA is encouraging all Sierra Leoneans, Friends of Sierra Leone, and the international non-profit community to come together and help and the victims of this disaster. Funds received will be forwarded to the Government of Sierra Leone in Freetown to help the victims.

Due to Gofundme.com policies, we have been unable to withdraw the funds donated. We are required to use an EIN number or a US Citizen with social security number to withdraw the funds. As a foreign embassy, we do not have an EIN number. We are not a company or non-profit organization. We are a Diplomatic Mission. These funds are supposed to be transferred to the Government of Sierra Leone's Consolidated Relief Fund for the Mudslide.

In light of the above, the Embassy Sierra Leone has appointed Mr. Tamba Lamin (CEO of SaloneTech LLC) as the beneficiary of this campaign to help us withdraw the funds for further transfer into the Government of Sierra Leone's Consolidated Relief Funds.

Once the money is withdrawn and transferred into the Governments account, you will be notified and the list of all donors will be posted on our website at http://embassyofsierraleone.net
