Malaria

Malaria casts a long shadow over Sierra Leone, posing a significant threat to the entire population. It stands as one of the nation's foremost causes of illness and death. Nearly four in ten hospital consultations stem from this relentless disease, with children under five bearing a particularly high risk. In response, our hospital extends a helping hand, offering free care and precise microscopy testing through our dedicated lab team.

For severe cases, we provide inpatient management, while outpatient pharmaceutical support is made possible through collaboration with the Government of Sierra Leone. Taking a comprehensive approach, our outreach program engages communities through public forums, spreading awareness of prevention strategies and providing interventions like mosquito nets. By addressing malaria holistically, we aim to instigate systemic change from the grassroots level.

Aligned with the World Health Organization's ambitious goal to eradicate malaria by 2050, we're committed to fighting this scourge every step of the way.

Minor injuries

We stand as a beacon of relief for minor injuries in the region. From cuts and burns to sprains and limb ulcers, our dedicated unit offers a one-stop solution for prompt care

The prevalence of such injuries is substantial in our region and throughout Sierra Leone, largely due to the physical demands of agricultural and other economic activities. However, inadequate hygiene practices often exacerbate these wounds, leading to infections and serious complications. Our trained clinicians are equipped to address these concerns swiftly, providing expert treatment, dressing, and thorough follow-up care.

We extend our commitment beyond the hospital walls, actively engaging local communities to promote insights into wound hygiene practices, all at no cost. Our mission is clear: to provide comprehensive care and empower communities to safeguard against minor injuries.
