In 1996, HI launched its first activities in the country with the opening of a rehabilitation center in Bo. Since then, HI has been instrumental in building the foundation of rehabilitation work, promoting the agenda of inclusive education, protection and mental health in Sierra Leone through various projects.
HI has also responded to the major health emergencies of the last decade including the Ebola outbreak from 2013 to 2015 and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Since its first mission in 1996, HI has reach out to tens of thousands of people including people with disabilities, girls, children and women who needed the support to alleviate the sufferings due to lack of access to services and social injustice.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, HI has continued to help the world’s most vulnerable people. We have adapted our interventions in more than 45 countries.
