Rep. Bass Calls For Increased U.S. Aid To Sierra Leone
"The situation in Freetown, Sierra Leone remains dire as rainfall continues, slowing recovery efforts and bringing the threat of further mudslides. The Government of Sierra Leone has made an urgent international appeal for assistance and the Embassy of Sierra Leone in the United States has launched an emergency relief fund. The United States must ramp up relief efforts and join the international community and the region to provide increased aid to assist Sierra Leone during this extreme time of need. My thoughts are with the thousands affected during this difficult time."
