The West-African Ebola outbreak of 2014 and 2015 is almost over. Fortunately, people in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea are able to look towards a new future. With investments in healthcare, sexual and reproductive rights and small- to medium-scale entrepreneurship, Cordaid supports Sierra Leoneans in rebuilding their country.

This week, Cordaid CEO travels to Sierra Leone with journalists and photographers, to show them which results were obtained in the Cordaid response to the Ebola crisis. The Dutch national appeal ‘Stop Ebola’ resulted in over 10 million euros of public donations. Cordaid spent part of that money through our PBF-Plus health systems strengthening program, and with success.
