Sierra Leone, is a country that emerged from a decade of civil war which ended in 2002, but left in its wake social unrest and a destroyed social and physical infrastructure. After making strides to rebuild its fragile economy, it was devastated again by Ebola until it was finally declared Ebola free in March 2016 . Recently a food scandal broke out in the capital of Freetown, that was both heartbreaking and scandalous. Contaminated chicken was imported into Sierre Leone by a trader. The countries health services rendered the chicken unfit for human consumption and under the orders of government, the carcasses where buried on a landfill site. Thousands of people stormed the dump site and poor people dug the chicken up that had been buried in human, garbage and industrial waste. Together...
Pots made of dumped cans? Fertilizer made of biological waste? Young trash pioneers in Bo, a city of Sierra Leone, are doing exactly that. They clean their city and contribute to local employment, upcycling projects and organic farming.

Our DFID funded Waste to Wealth project in Makeni, Sierra Leone has recently come to an end, resulting in the establishment of 6 micro-enterprises all working with waste. Film-maker Mike Duff visited Makeni back in March to see what we had been up to. Living Earth Foundation have committed to continue providing support to these 'Waste to Wealth' enterprises for the next 6 months, and have already recruited a Project Officer and a Business Development Mentor to work with them to help them develop sound business and marketing plans. We hope that in this period they will be able to create a market for these new products, and contribute to Makeni City Council's waste management strategy in the process!

#EbolaResponse - undp.org/ebola With support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF), Sierra Leone has begun to use new, environmentally-friendly sterilizing equipment to help dispose of the vast amounts of contaminated protective equipment and infectious waste generated in treating Ebola patients. The sterilizing machine, known as an autoclave, decontaminates used medical equipment and waste such as syringes, personal protective suits and gloves through several cycles of high-pressure steam and vacuuming, allowing for their safe disposal. It is the first of its kind in any of the Ebola-affected countries and is now functioning at the Ebola Treatment Units (ETU) at Police Training School Treatment Centre Two in Hastings and No. 34 M...
(I was spendin' too much time alExplainone)
Spendin' too much time alone...
(And I just ran outta Trojans)
Horses gallop to her throne
(We were behaving like teenagers)
We're behaving like teenagers

Still inside our parents' homes
(No I don't live in Denver)
No I don't live in Denver
(I grew up in Sierra Leone)
And her pink skies will keep me warm
Tid bits of intuition that I be gettin' abandon admission (Sierra Leone)
Abandon mission, you must be kiddin', this shit feelin' different
Shit feelin' too good to me
Glistening, shimmerin' underneath the sunlight, the sunlight (Sierra Leone)
And a new day will bring about the dawn
And a new day will bring another cryin' babe into the world (girl now)
Our daughter's reachin' for the nipple cause it's time for her to eat
Tonight I'll lay her in the cradle if it's time for go to sleep
I sing a Lennon lullaby, she can have a pretty dream
Baby girl if you knew what I know, knew what I know
Na, na na, na na, na...
