STORIES AND ARTICLES
We publish stories and articles written by our volunteers (reporters or writers) all over the world, especially in the community and from Sierra Leone. Particularly humanitarian stories and articles, including the rights of Refugees, Asylum Seekers, domestic violence, Ebola survivors,and child abuse issues and about their needs because we also protect and promote human rights programs and activities.
However, since some of our numerous readers and philanthropy partners all over the world are unable to lay hands on some of the very good humanitarian stories and articles, especially on human rights published by some of the newspapers, particularly on family violence, child abuse and Ebola survivors plights in our community and Sierra Leone. We would also republish such stories and articles on our website to give them the opportunity to read such stories and articles in order to keep them more abreast with events bothering such people in the community and in the country, especially for their support.
Nonetheless, we apologize for any mistake we might make during the process of republishing such stories and articles on our website, especially in terms of crediting the source.
