Civil War breaks in Sierra Leone
December 2045 | Jennifer Rankin

Following a coup in the Sierra Leone capital of Freetown, including the destruction of the city's main hospital, the country has been declared in a state of civil war. Renowned philanthropist Eleanor Northbrook has reportedly donated in excess of a six figure sum to emergency aid work in the area.

"We're very saddened by these turn of events, and will do everything possible to help the innocent civilian population," she says. "The loss of a hospital at such a time is very concerning."

Ms Northbrook is a staunch advocate of the Red Cross, and the charity has been involved in various health and educational projects throughout the area.

In recent years the discovery of rhodium rich areas in the south has brought unexpected economic boom to the country, but some minority groups are dissatisfied with the distribution of wealth.

It has been nearly fifty years since the last civil war.

Ms Northbrook confirms that the Red Cross will be aiding an appeal. If you wish to donate, you can do so via the Red Cross website.
