WFP Steps Up Assistance to Meet Urgent Food Needs of Families and Communities Affected By Ebola

The United Nations World Food Programme is continuing to scale up its operations to provide food and logistical support to over 1 million people affected by the Ebola crisis in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.


Although Sierra Leone has abundant natural resources, the decade-long civil war severely devastated the country’s economy, destroyed infrastructure and caused large-scale human suffering. The global recession has hampered recent progress, which has decreased incoming capital. The country ranks 177 out of 187 countries on the 2013 UNDP Human Development Index.
