Sento and her family were sleeping when the rain started. Soon, it triggered one of the most devastating landslides Sierra Leone has ever seen, killing hundreds and leaving thousands homeless.
As they tried to escape, Sento’s husband went back to save their one-month-old son. She never saw him again, but the next day their son was found lying in the floodwaters. Miraculously, he survived – but now Sento and her children must carry on with their lives without even the most basic amenities.
This gift can’t bring back Sento’s old life, but it can help provide the basics while she and people like her heal and rebuild.
