Mayor Aki-Sawyerr shared the Council’s short and long term plans to over 400 households that were affected in both Kroo Bay and Susan’s Bay, and started donation of shelter kits in partnership with CRS, Concern, and ONS.

The Mayor revealed that in the short term, Freetown City Council’s partners, CRS & Concern, are providing shelter kits for residents to rebuild their homes. She emphasized that the safety of the affected residents and the reconstruction of all homes are of utmost importance to the Freetown City Council.

At Kroo Bay, the Mayor explained that the reconstruction will last a few weeks because the Council and its partners, including the Office of National Security, want the process to be as orderly as possible. “You have been divided into groups and each group has been given a specific time to be verified and to collect their shelter kits. Do not come for your materials when it is not your turn. When it is your turn, please show up and show up on time. We do not want any excuses,” the Mayor urged the affected people.

She went on to explain that the affected residents are expected to work as a team for all the homes to be rebuilt as the supply of future relief items depends on the success of the current donation. She cautioned: “Our ability to move fast depends on your willingness to do the right thing. Make sure you arrive on time, make sure that people who are not supposed to be at the construction site do not go there, do not give us wrong information to try to get more than what you deserve, report anything that seems to be going wrong and everyone should work as a team. If of all that happens, in a short space of time, Kroo Bay will get back to normal and, by God’s grace, we will engage with you over the coming months, so that by next year we will see some change in Kroo Bay.”
