The Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) has made significant, if uneven, progress over the last decade addressing Trafficking in Persons (TIP). Threatening this progress, the Ebola outbreak created unforeseen difficulties that left Sierra Leoneans more economically fragile, lacking food security, and vulnerable to the tactics of traffickers. That’s where the WHI Recovery Centre project makes a difference. The Recovery Centre provides comprehensive and safe residential care for survivors of human trafficking. Sierra Leonean stakeholders (GoSL, Sierra Leone Police, NGOs, etc.) continue to identify and refer TIP survivors to the TIP Recovery Centre.
