Why are we in Sierra Leone?

Here is a short video that we put together to show you the needs of this country.

When the Minister of Health and Sanitation was on board for a short reception, she shared some even more shocking statistics with us:
  • population: 6 200 000
  • gynecologists: 5
  • midwives: 80
  • physicians: 4
  • psychiatrists: active-0, retired-1
  • Sierra Leone is no.158 out of 169 on the WHO's Human Development Index (Norway is no.1!)
Any more questions?
