Frankly speaking: Children share their views on COVID-19


Save the Children Sierra Leone is conducting a rapid assessment of children in selected communities to find out how COVID-19 is affecting their lives.  Through frank conversations with children aged five to eighteen years, the assessment will find out how much information children have about COVID-19, how they feel about school closure and concerns they have about staying at home.
