“In line with our foundational objective of ‘complementing the effort of the Government of Sierra Leone in nation building’ we are able to mobilise our membership at home and in the Diaspora to raise funds for this intervention,” said AWOL Chairman, Amb. Anthony Navo Jnr.
He added: “AWOL has always been there for Sierra Leone in good times as well as during challenging times like this. We will always play our part.”
Contributions were received from our international chapters, AWOL UK, AWOL US and AWOL Europe.
Meanwhile, AWOL salutes all heroes in the frontline of fighting this pandemic- our health workers, essential service providers, security personnel, the media- especially the SLAJ Coronavirus Response Committee, the EOC and, above all, the resilient people of Sierra Leone.
Together we will survive this and come out much STRONGER and UNITED as a nation.
