The bus remained off the road for several weeks and the cost of the repair depleted our funds considerably. Of course being off the road for so long meant that the bus was not earning an income for the club and yet again we had to raise finds to keep them afloat.
Eventually the bus was back on the road and all seemed looked well, but this was short lived. Almost immediately after the bus was back the terrible tragedy of Ebola hit West Africa and Sierra Leone in particular. Quite soon into the disaster we received the sad news that Dr. Mohammed Korma had died from the disease. He was the Chair of the largest Sierra Leone supporters club outside of the capital Freetown and had contracted the disease through his work with the afflicted. We were able to send his family a little money to help them through the loss of their only breadwinner.
