With the Outburst of the COVID-19 crisis, the challenge is immense.
The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of people around the world, including Sierra Leone which is experiencing severe lockdowns. Although there are few hundreds of known positive cases with no reported death from the virus at the moment, life for the vulnerable children who used to roam the street for their daily survivor is very difficult since the government have declared a state of emergency without putting any practical provisions in place to assist the population.
Girls’ Rights Initiative for Ethical Behaviours want to help some of these vulnerable children to get access to free quality meals at this time of urgent need. This measure, if achieve through your generosity will discourage young girls from using their body in what we called 'Sex for Food,' the process in which hungry young girls will give themselves to older men for sex in exchange for few Leones to buy food
We also want to sensitise the public, especially children about the preventive procedures of COVID-19 and provide them with hand sanitizer and sanitary pads for their personal hygiene as we fight to eradicate COVID-19 from our society. Girls’ Rights Initiative for Ethical Behaviours is a registered charitable organisation in Sierra Leone which is funded and operated by local volunteers.
