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

The Ola During Children’s Hospital does not have an x-ray department. Patients in need of x-rays have to travel across town, a journey of up to one hour, which leads to a delay in the diagnostic process. Seriously ill patients cannot make this journey and miss out on these crucial tests and therefore, optimal treatment. 

The total cost of setting up the x-ray department (purchasing and shipping of equipment, installation in a uniquely modified container, human resources, radiation protection approval, etc) is approximately £175,000 (USD 280,000).     

This is a unique way for you to help the children of Sierra Leone!

Any money donated through this page will go directly to this appeal. For more information about Welbodi Partnership visit: www.welbodipartnership.org
