Link Launches disaster appeal

The Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link has launched a disaster recovery appeal after the tragic events have seen hundreds of people die and hundreds more missing after flash floods and landslips hit areas of Freetown and surrounding neighbourhoods in the peninsular area of Sierra Leone. Thousands made homeless as torrents of rain and mud raged through Regent and other settlements close to Freetown in Sierra Leone on Monday night. Entire families and houses were swept away. Survivors were trapped in the mud, amongst the wreckage and in the flood waters whilst the rain continued to pour down.
