‘Each One Bring One!’ Epilepsy Awareness Day 26 March

Partners in Sierra Leone are preparing for Epilepsy Awareness Day on 26 March. Also known as Purple Day, this dedicated day is an opportunity to raise public awareness of epilepsy and encourage those affected to come forward for treatment. Over 90% of those affected in Sierra Leone are still without medication.  This year the theme is ‘Each One Bring One’ : we are encouraging people to understand more about the symptoms and to think about supporting a friend, family or community member to attend one of our project clinics, which are now established across the country.
