Philip Morris West Africa joins fight to eliminate Ebola in Sierra Leone

NOVEMBER 17, 2014


Responding to the clarion call for help in the fight against the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone, the Embassy of Sierra Leone in Dakar has made further gains in that direction.

Ambassador Khadijatu Bassir had initiated the idea for the Mission to approach commercial houses in Senegal to render assistance to Sierra Leone’s battle with Ebola.

Consequently, meetings were arranged with Philip Morris to present Sierra Leone’s case and identify areas of assistance for their consideration.

At a meeting on 12th November 2014 in the office of Ambassador Bassir, Mr. Harouna Ly, Director of Corporate Affairs at Philip Morris announced that approval has been given in the sum of US$100,000 to purchase an ambulance and pick-up truck.

The contract will be implemented by CARITAS.

According to Mr. LY, the ambulance will be purchased in Germany and shipped to Freetown, while the pick-up truck will be sent to Freetown from Dakar as soon as modalities are finalised.

Ambassador Bassir, on behalf of the Government and people of Sierra Leone, expressed her sincere thanks and appreciation to Philip Morris for their show of support and solidarity, which she noted would always be remembered.
