The Sierra Leone Civil War began in 1991, by the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) under Foday Sankoh. Tens of thousands died and more than 2 million people (well over one-third of the population) were displaced because of the 11-year conflict. Neighboring countries became host to significant numbers of refugees attempting to escape the civil war. It was officially declared over on 18 January 2002.


The Military along with ZCD Foundation and local artist built this awesome inspiring Memorial.

As you will see in the pictures the “Building of the Dume” This building was built to display all the names of the tens of thousands of people that died in the 11-year civil war.
