Prayer Before Safe Burial


Prayer Before Safe Burial


The family of the deceased look on and say a prayer before the body is removed for safe and dignified burial in Sierra Leone, November 7, 2014. From October 2014, families were allowed to attend burials again, and to invite an imam or minister to pray at a safe distance.
