On August 14th, a massive mudslide, triggered by days of heavy rains, came down Sugar Loaf Mountain and onto Freetown, Sierra Leone. Initial reports are that of nearly 400 killed and more than 600 still missing. Thousands more are left without homes or food and are living in life threatening conditions, with limited access to medical care and other resources.
Mission Central stands ready should UMCOR need assistance and it is anticipated that ministry partners such as the Sierra Leone Initiative will have increased needs in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please pray with us for the families, survivors and all those affected by this terrible disaster.
