SIERRA Leone is a country of contrasts; along its coastline, one can see white, sandy beaches that go on and on; up on the hills, the view is dominated by green, lush forests, while the view of the centre of its capital, Freetown, is dominated by reddish-brown sand and dust.

If Sierra Leone is uttered in conversations these days, the words “ebola” and “civil war” will undoubtedly, more often than not, follow.
