THIS IS MASANGA

We are a 120-bed hospital providing healthcare and clinical training in rural Sierra Leone.

We provide surgical, obstetrical, and pediatric care, as well as general healthcare for about 12.000 patients a year.

EDUCATION

Together with our partner CapaCare we provide surgical training for 16 community health officers annually and our Tonkolili District of Health Sciences has over 300 nurses in training.

RESEARCH

Our medical research unit conducts relevant clinical research, because we believe evidence is the foundation of good quality healthcare.

MORE FOR MASANGA

We need your help to ensure that we can continue to provide good quality healthcare, research and clinical training. As patient numbers grow it is getting increasingly difficult to meet our running cost. The government of Sierra Leone has pledged to help and is willing to take over the hospital in a 5-year plan. Your donation can make this transition from an NGO supported hospital to a governmental hospital sustainable.

Help us ensure the future of training and healthcare in rural Sierra Leone
by reaching our goal of €50.000 donated by the end of 2019! Join our 2019 campaign: More for Masanga.

THIS IS MASANGA

Meet Kelfala, a young boy who fell ill because of typhoid fever. He came in so sick that we did not think we would be able to save him. He was unconscious, his breathing was deep, and his hands and feet felt cold to the touch. We did not dare to operate him in such a state. But after receiving blood, some fluids and a strong dose of antibiotics we had a window for surgery. His changes were slim but at least there was hope.

Next to him is Amara Conteh. Amara came to Masanga almost a decade ago as a young community health officer (CHO) in training. He stayed as a CHO and studied further to become a SACHO trough the CapaCare training programme. He repaired the bowels of Kelfala that were destroyed by the typhoid and by doing so, he saved his life.

This picture is taken three weeks later when Kelfala was fit enough to leave the hospital. This story illustrates why we believe in our approach of capacity building: It will ensure good healthcare for years to come in a region where this is very necessary.
