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

 

Currently one in seven Sierra Leonean children die before their fifth birthday, mainly due to preventable and treatable diseases. Despite this, there is only one children’s hospital and one qualified paediatrician in the country’s public health system.

 

Since 2007, the Welbodi Partnership has been working with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation and international partners to support the Ola During Children’s Hospital (ODCH) in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Through local partnership, Welbodi makes strategic and sustainable investments in this government hospital to reduce excess child mortality. Their aim is to create a centre of excellence in which best healthcare practice can be established and used as a template for paediatric care across Sierra Leone.

 

I'm running the Bupa London 10,000 race and trying to raise 200 pounds to support Welbodi in continuing their great work
