Ebola Appeal Update - 20 September 2014

Everyone at CODEP continues to be very grateful for the generous response to our Appeal.

Rosetta and her team have now carried out further ebola preventative training sessions and have made further donations of relief to the quarantined and those in need.

Waterloo Chairman Alhassan Cole was present at the most recent session and has sent a letter of his and the Council’s appreciation of the support the community has been receiving.

Waterloo, like the whole of Sierra Leone is currently nearing the end of the “Ose to Ose Ebola Tok” lock-down – where volunteeer health workers are intending to go house-to-house identifying cases and raising awareness of Ebola. We have learnt from Rosetta that during the lockdown, 7 dead bodies were discovered at Monkey Bush at the outskirts of waterloo.

Rosetta has also written to us expressing her thanks for your support. Please find a few minutes to read her message here, which provides a powerful insight into what it is like living in Sierra Leone in the current troubled time.

Rosetta has said that she and her colleagues intend to go out and do more sensitization training and provide buckets and disinfectant as preventive measures for the outskirts of Waterloo. They are also planning to being relief and aid to the outlying communities. You can see from the photo, some of the supplies your assistance has help has helped purchase.

In the UK we are going to continue to work to try and do what we can to support Rosetta and everyone in Waterloo. The funds we raise will continue to be used o provide further training and purcharse relief and food for those who need it and for those who need it and supplies for the for the CHO and those in quarantine.

Thank you

The CODEP team
