Thank you note from the First Lady in Sierra Leone

11.04.15

Mrs. Sia Nyama Koroma the First Lady of Sierra Leone sent a thank you note to the Chairman of Aurora Foundation Ólafur Ólafsson. In the letter she thanks Aurora and Ólafur in particular the great support the Fund has showed her people now at difficult times when the country is fighting Ebola. But the Foundation has greatly supported the fight against Ebola by sending medical equipment and donated funds for food packages for vulnerable persons. The First Lady also expresses her gratitude to Aurora Foundation for all the support the Foundation has given through the past few years but Aurora has supported various projects in the country.

Many interesting projects are currently in the pipeline, but a PPP contract was signed recently about operating four fish landing sites in Sierra Leone. Two contracts with two micro finance companies have also been signed but further info on these projects can be found on the project page of this website.
