Land Rover supports Red Cross work to rebuild lives and communities in Sierra Leone
Twenty years on from the start of the civil war in Sierra Leone, Land Rover is supporting the Red Cross in its work to help people and communities affected to recover and build a brighter future for themselves.
The effect of the war on children and young people was particularly severe, with around 17,000 having fought as “child soldiers” most of them just teenagers, some as young as six years old. With Land Rover’s support, the Sierra Leone Red Cross is able to deliver a life-changing programme called Child Advocacy and Rehabilitation (CAR), which helps some of the country’s most traumatised young people, to recover and reintegrate back into society.
Land Rover and the Red Cross have created this short film to demonstrate how the Sierra Leone Red Cross and Land Rover are working together to help young people rebuild their lives and create a more hopeful future.
