Sierra Leone

Hold out a hand of friendship

Visit an amazingly resilient country with warm, friendly people. Come and support Sierra Leone as they continue to rebuild after the devastation of Ebola. This trip has dual locations, with a week in the capital Freetown – followed by a week at the very beautiful Bureh beach.

The Projects

Over the years, we’ve helped to build hospital wards, children’s homes, schools and much more. Join us as we continue to provide support to a nation devastated by recent events. Each is very different and depend on the needs of partners at that time.

NEW FOR 2017!
We’ll be running a Christmas/New year team in 2017 – visit the website for more details.

Rest and Relaxation

For part of the trip you will be staying in accommodation on Bureh Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This small community really values our support. Spend time with local families, have a surf, or turn your hand to simpler pleasures - like eating grilled barracuda, making new friends and watching the sunsets.
