King Mohammed VI sends emergency aid to Sierra Leone

Heavy rainfall in the West African country led Monday to large mudslides in the capital Freetown.

Local media reported earlier that more than 400 people in Sierra Leone have died, including more than a hundred children. There are still about 600 people missing. Around 3000 people have been forced to leave their homes. They have direct help and shelter, reports REUTERS.

King Mohammed VI has ordered to send emergency aid to the flood victims. Sending emergency aid to Sierra Leone is part of the strong friendship and solidarity relationship between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Republic of Sierra Leone, reported a statement by the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International cooperation (DFAIT) yesterday.

The 66 tons of emergency aid includes tents, blankets and anti-cholera kits, the statement said, noting that the delivery of the aid to the people of Sierra Leone today will be provided by the Royal armed forces (FAR).
