Sierra Leone is a small country located in the west coast of Africa. It is bounded by Guinea and Liberia. It has a population of about seven million people. Freetown is the capital and is located at the west part of the country. As a result of the long civil war which the country suffered, there was a larger influx of people into the capital city. Due to this large influx of people, the city has become densely populated. This population has had an adverse effect on the living condition of the majority of the people. The poor living condition of the city inhabitants has led to various things that have been perpetrated against women and children over the years.
