NBI Sierra Leone

S

      ierra Leone: a small, West African country the size of South Carolina which historically has been toward the bottom of the United Nation’s Human Development Index which rates quality of life for it’s citizens. Yet this poor and struggling country holds special significance for NBI founders Dr. Lori Basey and Sandy Orchard.

At the request of a friend, Basey and Orchard began going to Sierra Leone in 2005 where Dr. Basey contracted malaria. After a near death experience (explained in a video on our home page), Basey and Orchard became committed to helping the post war country recover from the horrible effects of a civil war. It was decided that something had to be done to address the effects of the trauma which which every person carries within that country.


In 2007, Dr. Lori and Sandy met and began partnership with Sierra Leone ministers Andrew and Angie Sesay. That partnership flourished and has impacted thousands of Sierra

Leonians through past activities of building and maintaining a middle school in an area of extreme poverty as well as traveling all over the country teaching life-changing skills and messages. That partnership continues even today as No Boundaries Sierra Leone continues affecting lives by facilitating trauma healing conferences all over the nation as well as reaching out to at-risk populations.
