Sierra Leone - Sport Relief 2016 / by Alex Walker Walker

Earlier in the year I was sent to Freetown, Sierra Leone by Comic Relief along with Eastenders actor Danny Dyer and a small BBC film crew to document some of the projects which Comic Relief Supports in the region.   We worked with the local organisations, and met a few of the families and individuals who would be benefiting from the charities work.     These people live in unimaginable conditions day in day out.

Below is one of the many families who live and work on one of the rubbish dumps in Freetown, Sierra Leone.  They will sift through the rubbish looking for plastics or other valuable items to sell or recycle.
