Expat community sending help to Sierra Leone

As British army medics help the fight against Ebola in West Africa, many people here in the UK are hoping to do their bit by collecting and sending aid.

More than 4,500 people have died in the outbreak, according to the World Health Organisation.

Those with families and friends in Sierra Leone hope that by sending clothes, food and hygiene equipment they too can make a difference.
