WHY SIERRA LEONE?

We are the only hospital in Sierra Leone that provides free treatment to anyone who walks through our doors.

HOW WE HELP

the three main areas we provide towards

Medical

Deep-seated poverty compels families to make difficult choices between having a meal or getting lifesaving medical treatment.

We believe that no one should have to make these choices. Your support provides free medical treatment to everyone walking through the hospital doors in Sierra Leone.

Education

We have adopted schools in Yonibana to provide educational sponsorship to students from secondary to graduate level. Allowing them to have a livelihood and support their future families.
