Updates from Sierra Leone

During his trip Ed has been in communication with us from Sierra Leone, giving us the latest. He's been with Paul Mathers and a local physician so far, conducting free clinics in the area of the Bo village. He is currently meeting with Adisa in Freetown and travelling to Kono from there.

Adisa will stay in Freetown for a few days to coordinate the arrival of the shipment of medical supplies and will then head back to the Kono and Bo regions.

Ed has been seeing over 100 patients already and is stressing to us the level of need is almost overwhelming.

We will have video and images to share with you after their return, so stay tuned!
