Despite increased aid to Sierra Leone, Ebola still rages. More than 1300 deaths have been confirmed in Sierra Leone alone. All of the country’s resources have been devoted to fighting the disease, making every day provisions expensive and difficult to obtain.
The Center for Business and International Negotiation in the College of Business has been working on developing training programs in Sierra Leone, and is now focusing its attention on collecting supplies to be sent to Sierra Leone. Donations are being solicited from the entire Clayton State community. The Center is requesting donations of:
25 lb. bags of rice
Canned goods, such as luncheon meat, corned beef, sardines, tomato paste, etc.
Hygiene products, such as soap, lotion, Vaseline, bleach, gloves, toilet paper and anything else associated with hygiene
Collection drums will be located on the first floor of the College of Business through Dec. 15, 2014. Cash donations are also being accepted to help defer the cost of shipping. The driving force in this project is Clayton State student Sia Amadu, a member of the CoB Mediation Team.
