    Location of Embassy compound and its immediate surroundings (U) The U.S. Embassy in Freetown is located in the center of the city of Freetown on a small hilltop. The entire compound is surrounded by a wall and fencing with limited access to the main structure. The compound is approximately 11.4 acres with the main building being approximately 6,700 sq meters.1 There is a small neighborhood to the south-west and another to the north-east.

With no parents or living adult to support her and living in a refugee camp, she turned…
