More than 400 bodies have been pulled from the debris left by flooding and mudslides in Sierra Leone’s capital of Freetown. An estimated 600 people are still missing, and thousands more have been left homeless. The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka, in partnership with the YMCA of Sierra Leone, is urgently asking individuals and organizations in the community to donate funds to help support the victims.
