Sierra Leone has both the highest maternal mortality rate and the highest under 5 mortality rate in the world. The catastrophic effects of the recent Ebola outbreak only made this worse.
A new born baby is 14 times more likely to die in Sierra Leone than in Ireland. VSO Ireland is doing everything it can to help save the lives of mothers and babies across Sierra Leone but we need YOUR help now!
Please help VSO Ireland train local community health workers and provide vital lifesaving medical equipment that will help save lives.
