Hassan, a boy helped by Red Nose Day

Meet Hassan

Hassan is a 12-year-old boy who lives in Sierra Leone. During the Ebola crisis, his mother died from the virus and Hassan missed a year of school. Thanks to Red Nose Day cash, he now goes to school and we have a film and learning resources exploring his life, the challenges he faces and his hopes for the future.
