Big Me week - running from 8-12 October - is ActionAid's easy fundraising day for primary schools. Children dream big, dress up as what they want to be when they grow up and raise money to change lives.I'm a teacher at Mora Primary School in London and we took part in Big Me early to test it out.

It is now just over a week since a devastating mudslide swept through some of the poorest communities in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone. Over 500 people have been confirmed to have died, while over 3,000 people remain missing. Those who have survived have lost everything, and are in a deep state of trauma. Our local staff in Freetown were able to respond within hours of the mudslide, helping in the immediate relief efforts. By last Friday, they had reached 260 families with emergency supplies of food, water and shelter. These images from the team show the impact of the mudslide, and what they are doing to help the most vulnerable.
