Camps shut down for Sierra Leone's mudslide survivors

Despite promises of compensation and housing, displaced survivors of mudslides in Sierra Leone say they have yet to receive the help as the government moves to shutter camps for those whose homes were destroyed.

    Despite promises of compensation and housing, displaced survivors of mudslides in Sierra Leone say they have yet to receive the help as the government moves to shutter camps for those whose homes were destroyed.

    Camps for survivors of Sierra Leone's mudslide that killed hundreds in August are being shut down, leaving many with nowhere to go.

    The government wants to move the homeless to 1,000 new homes it is building, but construction is far from complete.

    Government authorities say that no one will be forced to leave the camps without compensation and housing, but many victims are beginning to question whether they will receive what they were promised.
