The Sierra Leone China Foundation is disturbed by news of the outbreak of Corona Virus Disease in China, the devastating loss of lives that it has left in its trail and the danger it continues to pose to China in particular and the world in general.
The Foundation is not unaware of the role China played in helping Sierra Leone deal with the Ebola Virus Disease, and is equally not oblivious of the pains and hard times that China is going through at this moment.
The Foundation therefore solidarizes with China in this moment of adversity and earnestly prays for God’s divine intervention. China has always been on hand when Sierra Leone has been in dire need in different arenas.
The Foundation, on behalf of Sierra Leoneans, registers its sympathy to the Government and People of China on the huge loss of human lives occasioned by the outbreak of this deadly viral disease.
Sierra Leoneans endured the horrible days of Ebola and with resilience were able to successfully overcome the menace . The Foundation therefore urges the people of China to draw strength from such resilience as they deal with their own , and advises them to take the preventative and curative measures with utmost seriousness .
The Sierra Leone China Foundation reiterates its commitment to consolidating the bilateral relations between Sierra Leone and China and prays that the authorities will find a quick solution to the scourge .
