Students raise awareness for Sierra Leone at benefit concert

When Jim Phledging, a board member for West Africa Community Missions, fell in a hole and broke his arm amidst his trip to Africa, he went to the emergency room, only to find that he was the only patient there. Not one Sierra Leone citizen could afford to go to an emergency room. Organizations like Schools for Salone and the West Africa Community Missions work to help Sierra Leone after the civil war that ended in 2002.
