To Our Community

We as a collective are experiencing something truly unique in its uncertainty and impact. We thank you for standing together with us as we see our way through this together. Our hearts are with you.


Updates on Kono

As of Tuesday, April 21st 2020, the number of confirmed cases in Sierra Leone is now up to 50. All districts are on lock down, which means any travel between districts is prohibited. Individuals are able to move through the community between the hours of 7am - 7pm, however social distancing and necessary safety precautions are strongly encouraged.


All schools and areas of social gatherings have been closed indefinitely. With this, just as it has elsewhere, many jobs have been impacted and people are looking to find work. Shine On Sierra Leone is committed to continuing the payment of staff salaries during this time to support our team on the ground. Additionally we will be employing a team of Community Mobilizers to assist in the distribution of our COVID-19 response kits.


Our First Line Of Response - Wellness

Soap, hand sanitizer, and a bucket for water - these are some of the essential items to keeping community members safe and healthy during this pandemic. Each Hygiene kit will contain all of these three items and will help impact the wellness of up to 350 homes.


Our Second Line of Response - Nourishment

With our Quarantine Kits, we will provide up to 150 quarantined homes with the same sanitation items in the Hygiene Kit as well as such added nourishment components of Sardines, Tea, Salt, Sugar, Water, and Rice. Learning that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 is not an easy thing. Having to separate yourself from friends and loved ones for fourteen days can be a heavy weight on an individual's overall well being. In a community that relies heavily on securing food for their families solely on a daily basis, these Quarantine Kits will provide homes with necessary nourishment and an additional peace of mind during this time.



Every dollar truly makes a difference. Thank you for joining our movement.


All funds will go towards our COVID-19 response and operating expenses necessary to keep our doors open.
