Other information:

Guéckédou or Guékédou is a town in southern Guinea near the Sierra Leone and Liberian borders. It had a population of 79,140 in 1996 (census) but has grown massively since the civil wars and, as of 2008, it is estimated to be 221,715. It was a centre of fighting during the Second Liberian Civil War and the Sierra Leone Civil War in 2000 and 2001. The city is renowned for its large weekly market, which attracts traders from across Southern Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Côte d'Ivoire. On February 12, 2007, the town's police station was ransacked amidst the resumption of protests and strikes against President Lansana Conté [1] As of June 11, 2014, volunteers organized by Guéckédou's Red Cross have been working in sanitation, disinfection, and monitoring efforts to help contain the 2014 West Africa Ebola outbreak.
