Diaspora mobilise support for Ebola in London
The Royal Society of Medicine in London will be the venue for tomorrow’s Road Show organised by the Sierra Leone Diaspora Task Force in the United Kingdom to mobilise support for urgent need to eradicate the deadly Ebola virus disease.
The group seeks mainly Sierra Leoneans to come forward and submit their names to provide what they refer to as ‘invaluable medical and technical expertise’ in the fight against Ebola.
“Sierra Leone urgently and desperately needs your invaluable medical and technical expertise, cultural knowledge and awareness to help combat the terrible epidemic that has the potential to cause untold damage to the country and it’s people – your family and friends,” a message widely distributed on social network states.
The campaign is aimed at recruiting of Clinicians and Non-Clinicians to go to Sierra Leone in a package that will be funded by the British Government.
Over the past couple of weeks, members of the group Ade Daramy and Yvonne Aki Sawyer have had sleepless nights not only organising the programme but also raising massive awareness both to the Sierra Leonean community and the general world at large through the international media.
“We want our people to come forward and render their services to their troubled nation,” said Yvonne during a widely broadcast interview on Sky Television.
The programme will also be organised at the University of Manchester at Oxford Road in Manchester – and both programmes will run from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
Apart from soliciting technical expertise support, the group will also be sending containers of medical and relief items to Sierra Leone in a bid to contribute towards desperate demands needed on the ground.
During these programmes, there will be speakers from Medicine San Fontier (MSF), Save The Children, Kings Sierra Leone Partnership, Public Health England (PHE) and the Department For International Development (DFID).
