The Ebola epidemic, which began in March 2014 and claimed over 11,000 lives, has officially been over since March 2016. The epidemic has further aggravated the situation of the people in Sierra Leone: The consequences of the ten-year civil war from 1991 to 2002 are still having an impact today. The bloody conflict has not only left traumatic traces in the collective consciousness of the population, but also an economy that is barely getting on its feet. Young people in particular still lack educational opportunities and work today. Over 56 percent of the population lives below the poverty line, and 26 percent suffers from malnutrition.
