Charity wants to support victims of Freetown oil tanker explosion

by Tom Martin (November 2021)

A CHARITY based in Waterloo which supports projects in Sierra Leone has launched an appeal for donations to help the victims of the recent oil tanker collision in the west African country

The Waterloo Partnership charity supports sustainable development projects in its namesake community of Waterloo in Sierra Leone.

At least 98 people died on Saturday, November 6 after a massive explosion when a fuel tanker collided with a lorry in the Sierra Leone capital Freetown.

Fuel spilled before igniting and the resulting inferno engulfed bystanders and vehicles at a busy junction.

David Moorhead Trustee of The Waterloo Partnership said: “Our thoughts are with the victims and their families at this incredibly sad times. If you feel you can donate please go onto our website.

“Your generosity can make a huge difference to the lives of so many vulnerable people. This accident has changed the lives of so many people.

“Many breadwinners were among the dead. Families will be plunged into further poverty and despair.”
