President/Director

Mr. Patrick Tonkoh Kamara

I am a nurse, an activist, and a global citizen campaigning to end water poverty in Sierra Leone by 2030. I started this organization to help the people of Sierra Leone to have access to safe and portable drinking water in the rural communities affected by the 2012 cholera outbreak. The cholera left over 270 deaths and more than 19,000 affected as the result of waterborne diseases (UN). We're implementing projects that will help the rural villagers in Sierra Leone have access to clean and safe drinking water in their communities.
