Hi. I am writing on behalf of he Sierra Leone Nurses Association ( The New York Tristate Chapter). Many people don't know about Sierra Leone (Salone). We are the 2nd smallest country on the west coast of Africa. Although we are rich in resources,  the country is currently the poorest country in the world (based on human development index) at a ranking of 177 out of 177 countries. Many people are dying from health related illness...ie. Malaria. 250,000 a year contract malaria and the country only has 6 million people. 40% of the children under age 5 die because of Malaria. What the SLNA NYT has done in NY is historic in establishing its first professional chapter and the 2nd in the United States. It is our duty to educate the masses on what is going on in Africa. Many of these children and families can be saved from simple things like bed nets, repellant, and education. We ask the world, and especially the African-American community to help bridge the gap between Africa and America by working as one. We as nurses here in NYC doing our own share of community service to show the need for change in our communities. Awareness is key. We ask the Angel Rock family to visit us online www.sierraleonenursesassociation.com or email us slnanyt@yahoo.com We support all the efforts of the Rock Family and their work in Africa. Check our calendar of events page, and our Better With Bed Nets Fundraiser to raise 1000 Bed Nets to send to Sierra Leone  ( 1 per Family = $20.00 a net). Check us out on facebook, or google us.

Thank you all for your time, and future support.
 
Your Sierra Leonean Sister,
