Over 250 people crowded into the Freetown peace memorial park at the Cotton Tree to participate in the International Rescue Committee’s Rainbo Centre’s Stop Rape Now Sponsored Walk. The Vice President of Sierra Leone and his wife, the Minister of Defense, the president of the 50/50 Group, the British High Commissioner and his wife were amongst those who turned this early Saturday morning to walk from the center of town to Family Kingdom. 


The Rainbo Centres in Sierra Leone are sexual assault referral centres operating from government hospital premises in Freetown, Kenema and Kono. The Rainbo Centres support women, girls and other vulnerable groups in society who have suffered sexual assault incidents including rape. In 2013 the Rainbo Centres were able to care for 1,898 women and girls who had suffered a sexual assault incident in Freetown, Kenema and Kono. The sponsored walk is being held to promote awareness of the work that the Rainbo Centres do in Sierra Leone and to raise funds for the centres. Each participant donated Le. 40,000 and received a T-Shirt.
