The effects of Climate Change, including coastal flooding, affect everyone in coastal Sierra Leone. These women, recognizing what is at stake, are contributing to the building of an embankment by fortifying these artificial barriers with sand fetched from the shore. In this picture, women in the Momaya community are packing old sacks with sand and sending the sacks over to the men constructing this embankment.
