Yesterday, FCC launched a project to start the rehabilitation of drainages in 5 target communities including Caulker Street, Melon Street, Bottom Oku, Congo Water and Blackhall Road.
The one-year project will be implemented by UNOPS, with funding from the Government of Japan Funding, as part of FCC’s #TransformFreetown disaster prevention efforts.
Mayor Aki-Sawyerr joined Councillors Arthur Shekie Mansaray (Ward 403), Luckyn Mordings Mansaray (Ward 406), Agnes Marah (Ward 407), and Musa Sesay (Ward 421), UNOPS, and the beneficiary communities to launch the project.
Community-led flood mitigation work will happen in those areas ahead of the rainy season and rehabilitation work will start after the rainy season.
Thank you to the Government of Japan for supporting our efforts to #TransformFreetown during these difficult times.
