Social care

Our outreach programmes deliver preventative workshops on health and wellbeing, social care, sex education, grassroots sexually transmitted infections, female genital mutilation and teenage pregnancies.

Working in partnership

Working in partnership is central to our work and this is carried out with several UK and Sierra Leone hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and non-governmental organisations. These include; King’s College Hospital, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, London School of Tropical Medicine, Royal Papworth Hospital, Sigma Pharmaceutical, Day Lewis Pharmacy, Choitaram Hospital, Masanga Hospital, Canadian College of Modern Technology (now Northern University), Miro Forestry and Saturn Amenities Corporation.


Our work has been published in the British Medical Journal, Pharmaceutical and Dental Association. We have also been invited to give talks at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Southend BMI Hospital, London School of Tropical Medicine, Royal College of Surgeons and British Medical Association. Better Lives Foundation and Yonibana Sai Hospital has achieved recognition from Ministry of Health & Sanitation; Referral Hospital, Yoni district.

We have also been awarded the Most Outstanding Organisation in 2019, 2020 and 2021. And Also Outstanding and Emerging Leader of the Year, 2021. We also had the first ever surgeon to qualify in the Yonibana district.


Sustainability is the key to a successful agricultural project. We recognise the synergy between the commercial and ethical objective and the result has been to create an ethical culture in everything we do. We strive to achieve our project objectives and have now started a program to use the 25 acres of land surrounding the hospital in Yonibana. The team have introduced different varieties of crops plus adding to the agricultural biodiversity of the region.

We also have access to further agricultural land near our hospital for future growth of crops. This would also lead to creating job opportunities for the local communities.
