Sierra Leone is a nation rising out of years of hardship. A brutal decade-long civil war took the lives of over fifty thousand people in the 1990s, and in the aftermath the country has faced an Ebola crisis followed by a deadly mudslide. Ranking number 179 out of 188 on the Human Development Index, Sierra Leone has one of the highest child mortality rates in the world.
The people of Sierra Leone, however, are vibrant and full of life. They are eager to see their country flourish, and the Lord is moving in mighty ways across the nation. Despite being predominately Muslim, Christianity is widely accepted and many people are eager to come to the Lord. The Lulu Tree’s focus in Sierra Leone is partnering with pastors to plant churches, provide support through micro-loans to vulnerable families, and help villages grow a surplus of food through agricultural development.
