The aim of the donation was to further support ONS in strengthening the CDR initiative and efforts towards the prevention, mitigation and response to disasters across Sierra Leone.

According to the Emergency Preparedness and Response Coordinator-BRAC Sierra Leone, Sheku Alaka Tijan Mansaray, the donation was in-line with the organization’s efforts in enhancing emergency response capacities of local governments, schools and vulnerable communities.

Receiving the donation, Assistant Director, Disaster Management and Response – ONS , Sinneh Mansary, said the move was not only timely but came in handy.

“BRAC has always been the first INGO to respond to our call, and we will continue being grateful,” he added

He went on to note that the support towards the Community Disaster Reduction Volunteers, through the ONS was very much essential, considering the fact that the volunteers have always been the first responders in cases of emergencies  within their respective communities.
