Overview

In 2002, Sierra Leone emerged from a long and violent civil war that displaced two million people, killed more than 50,000 and fostered widespread abuse of human rights.

As the country slowly recovers from war, the International Rescue Committee brings vital services and protection to the vulnerable population to help them stay healthy and safe and find ways to move towards economic stability.

  • The IRC enrols students in safe schools with well-trained teachers.

  • The IRC works to lower mortality rates from treatable diseases such as malaria and diarrhoea and to make childbirth safe with accessible, high-quality health care.
