Power Women 232 is a newly formed network for women professionals in Sierra Leone. The network aims to bring professional women and entrepreneurs together to promote career advancement and development in all fields, through networking, leadership development, social events and community service.

Power Women 232 launched a citizens response to Ebola in Sierra Leone: All Hands on Deck in August 2014. The Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) epidemic currently gripping our nation presents an opportunity for the Power Women 232 network to engage in meaningful community service. All Hands on Deck is a drive asking ordinary citizens to contribute towards the fight by donating items for care packages.

Care packages have been delivered to Ebola isolation wards at the Kenema Government Hospital, Connaught Government Hospital and St. John of God Catholic Hospital, Mabeseneh. Deliveries will also be made to orphans in Kailahun and a selection of burial teams in across the country.
