What we do Where we work Sierra Leone Sierra Leone Located on the Atlantic Coast of West Africa, Sierra Leone is a constitutional republic with a multi-ethnic and religiously tolerant population of 7 million people. Devastated by a civil war from 1991-2002, and more recently by the 2014 Ebola outbreak which crippled the health system and stunted economic growth, Sierra Leone remains one of the poorest countries on earth. Nonetheless, the economy recovered in the wake of the Ebola crisis and is expected to post growth of 5.4% in 2017. You can read more about Sierra Leone here.
