First Aid Post to Serve Patients in Sierra Leone

SIERRA-LEONE-FAP-LOKOMASAMA

The good news about the end of the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone must not make us forget that this country still needs us: the epidemic has, in fact, made the already weak health system even more precarious.

That’s why our commitment towards the people of Sierra Leone goes on: at our Surgical and Pediatric Center in Goderich, a point of reference for the whole country, and at the new First Aid Post in Lokomasama that we opened just a few days ago.

In Lokomasama, our local staff guarantee first aid assistance 24 hours a day (“Continuity like this isn’t so common in Sierra Leone,” explains Luca, our coordinator in the country) and are always ready to transfer urgent patients to Goderich, thanks to our ambulance.

The Lokomasama First Aid Post was set up in collaboration with the European Union – EU Delegation to Sierra Leone.
