Recently, the government of the UK has announced that it will be making a funding of £2million for tackling cholera epidemic in the regions of Sierra Leone. It has been reported that because of the epidemic, about 200 lives have been lost.
Besides, about 12,000 people have been affected with the water-borne disease. With the pursuit of providing timely care to the people, the Department for International Development (DfID) is using new strategies and techniques.
Following the epidemic, the President Ernest Bai Koroma has called for national emergency. In the beginning of this week, the authorities asked the international bodies to help them in solving the situation. The International Rescue Committee, Care International and the British Red Cross and others have already started the rescue mission.
The Secretary of DfID, Andrew Mitchell was reported saying, “Not only will our response be rapid, it will be efficient. We will monitor closely to make sure every penny of British aid achieves results and supports those in dire need”. It is hoped that the authorities will be able to provide care services to the people as many lives are at risk in the regions of Sierra Leone.
