Catholic Relief Services (CRS), through funding from the European Union Delegation, is implementing the #EUStandsWithSalone - Supporting Freetonians confront COVID-19. This is a 2.23 million euros program with a 12 month duration. It is intended to support the efforts of Freetonians to prevent and manage the COVID-19 outbreak in Freetown with a special focus on 350,000 residents in informal settlements. The program is alignment with the Freetown City Council's COVID-19 response plan and is holistic in nature with interventions ranging from provision of handwashing stations, setting new isolation & containment centers, local production and distribution of masks, training for emergency response staff, clearing of water drainages to mitigate against flood risks, promotion of urban farming, as well as multi-media campaigns.
The proposed virtual tour will take participants from all over the world to various project sites across Freetown to learn about how the Freetown City Council and partners have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and are moving towards a resilient recovery.
