Harvest talk 4: Sierra Leone with Kayode Akintola

Our final Harvest Fast Day talk for the North East region will be held on Wednesday 16th September at 6pm with Kayode Akintola. Kayode is the CAFOD Country Representative for Sierra Leone and Liberia. Including his time at CAFOD, Kayode has been involved in international development management, civil society strengthening and social development for almost 20 years. 

This talk will be co-facilitated by Maggie Mairura, Community Participation Coordinator for Nottingham diocese. 

Sierra Leone is one of the lowest-ranking countries in the world for life expectancy, access to education and standard of living. Almost three-quarters of people live below the poverty line. CAFOD was on the front line when the deadly Ebola virus struck Sierra Leone. Now, our local experts are ready to support communities during the coronavirus crisis. “The reality is people must work to eat in this country, says Kayode, “They live a day after another. So, when we talk in terms of lockdown or self-isolation, it becomes very difficult for so many people.” 

“We defeated Ebola, and we know that by the grace of God we are going to defeat coronavirus.” 

Come and hear from Kayode in our final Harvest Fast Day talk.  

Reminder: Carol Cross will send you the Zoom link for this meeting 2 days beforehand
