The Welbodi Partnership

Welbodi Partnership is working to improve child health in Sierra Leone, where 1 in 7 children dies before their 5th birthday. Since 2007 we have worked with the government and hospital staff at the Ola During Children’s Hospital in Freetown with the aim to transform it into a centre of excellence.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Wellbodi Partnership's mission is to tackle child mortality in Sierra Leone, where one in five children dies before their fifth birthday, often from the most basic and treatable of conditions. They are working with the government’s only paediatric referral hospital, the Ola During Children’s Hospital in Freetown, and aim to transform it into a centre of excellence and training for paediatric care which can serve as a template for quality care provision, and a training resource for doctors and nurses in Sierra Leone who currently have no opportunity to specialise in paediatrics.

Your donation will fund improvements to facilities and the organisation of care, salary supplements for medical staff so that they can afford to work at the hospital without relying on other income streams to support themselves, and training programs for the next generation of paediatric specialists who will be qualified to train future cadres of medical students from all over Sierra Leone at the ODCH.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
