David O’Hare reports from Freetown in Sierra Leone where hundreds lost their lives in a massive landslide on 14 August.

I wake up on my first morning in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, to the sound of torrential rain outside.

I know that this sound must strike fear in people from Matome on the outskirts of Freetown. There was torrential rain right through the night and into the early morning of Monday 14 August when disaster struck their community.

Eoin Wrenn reports on the profound social problems, including high instances of violence and abuse, in the slums of Nakuru in Kenya and some of Trócaire’s efforts to address them.

It is not very often that I feel a sense of disillusionment after spending time with communities that Trócaire is working with.

However, this is how I felt last week after spending a few days in the slums of Nakuru, the fourth largest city in Kenya, about 160km from the capital Nairobi.
