Nadia who had been part of “Feeding America” got inspired by Thomas Foday’s “give food, not drug’s” event. Hence the two came together to form “Feeding Sierra Leone”. Our mission To feed Sierra Leone’s hungry through a nationwide network and engage our country in the fight to end hunger. Our Leadership The men and women who lead Feeding America on the board of directors and our executive team are dedicated individuals from a variety of backgrounds – all dedicated to creating a hunger-free Sierra Leone.
Why Feeding Sierra Leone? In the 2020 Global Hunger Index, Sierra Leone ranks 101st out of the 107 countries with sufficient data to calculate 2020 GHI scores. With a score of 30.9, Sierra Leone has a level of hunger that is serious. Sierra Leone is a small but densely populated country on the North Atlantic coast of West Africa, ranked 181 out of 189 countries in the 2019 Human Development Index. Poverty levels are high, with 53 percent of the population living below the income poverty line (US$1.25 per day). For these reasons the importance of feeding Sierra Leone can never be overemphasized. 100% of proceeds goes to Sierra Leone.
