In a brief statement, the NAYCOM Commissioner expressed sadness and informed the government representatives about PAACET’s partnership with his commission. Presenting the items on behalf of PAACET, the Africa Regional Director of PAACET, Charles Lahai expressed his organisation’s condolences to the affected families, noting that this is a moment of grief.

He added that they are saddened by such natural disaster and prayed that God will continue to console the affected families and Sierra Leoneans in general. He recalled the incidences of the eleven-year civil war and Ebola and encouraged all to learn from this lesson and continue to be resilient.
