Sierra Leone is a country in West Africa with a Muslim population of over 78%. Internal conflict crippled the country from the late 1980s onward, culminating in a brutal civil war that took place from 1991 to 2002. Since the end of the war, the government of Sierra Leone has undergone the arduous task of rebuilding the country’s physical and social infrastructure while fostering reconciliation. In 2014, the country was plagued by the Ebola outbreak and just recently were afflicted by a mudslide and flood in their capital, Freetown. The people of Sierra Leone have gone through and faced many trials over the years.
