Our team of volunteer doctors and nurses continue to need donations to support the recovery from the biggest ever outbreak of Ebola, and work to strengthen the healthcare system in Sierra Leone.
We’ve been in Sierra Leone since 2012, supporting Connaught Hospital in Freetown, and working to improve the country’s health system by strengthening training, clinical services, policy and research.
The first Ebola case was identified in Sierra Leone on 26 May 2014 and the focus of our work shifted to where it is needed most – working to fight the outbreak. King’s was at the heart of the international response, collaborating closely with our Sierra Leonean partners, the UK Government, and other NGO partners in a clinical and advisory role. King’s put in place a safe model of identifying, isolating and treating Ebola patients whilst keeping the hospital open, that is being replicated across the country by other organisations.
Though Sierra Leone has now reached 42 days without a case, Ebola continues to hit West Africa, and the countries must remain vigilant and continue to strengthen their health systems
Donations are essential in continuing our life-saving activities in Sierra Leone:
- £20 could buy blood pressure cuffs for the wards
- £75 could buy vital signs equipment for the Emergency department
- £150 could train 20 nurses on hand hygiene
- £1,000 could support a volunteer’s capacity building work for one month
Your support will ensure our work can continue well after the Ebola response is finished. We are committed to improving the health system in Sierra Leone so that local health workers and support staff have the resources and capacity to respond immediately and effectively to any future outbreaks. All our work is deeply rooted in sustainability, with equipment and training needs led by our partners.
We need your help in order to continue our critical work.
