Friends of Maternity Hospitas . Sierra Leonel
Sierra Leone,West Africa
Leadership Role: Health specialist
How Making A Difference: I lived in England for most of my life, return home to work with less privileged women in their villages. Trained Traditional Birth Attendance to reduce the high maternal and Infant morbidity and mortality rate in Sierra Leone .
I was also one of the champions to fight eradicate Ebola in Sierra Leone. Together with my team we visited and feed quarantine homes.
We now have a drop in center for pregnant women as they were afraid to go to hospital for Ante natal care and delivery of their babies.
This has improved the number of women visiting the hospital and the number of maternal death has improved.
Statement you would like to say to encourage others: Sierra Leone is a wonderful country, together we will reduce the high maternal and infant morbidity and mortality rate.
