In Ngolahun, MOH has renovated a small clinic, and is planning a 10-bed MCHP, a farm for nutritional support, and a community center for meeting with elected officials. We will also establish a skills training program for indigent mothers, focusing on local crafts such as dying with gara, which is prepared from indigo plants. This is a time-honored skill in Sierra Leone, and the women in Ngolahun are eager to learn it, in addition to weaving, sewing, and carpentry. We will add other skills as women request them.
Our recent donation to the Ngolahun school and clinic includes 200 primary school books, 17 boxes of writing supplies, 100 pairs of shorts, 1 wheelchair and 6 pairs of crutches, assorted medical and other supplies.
Students enthusiastically thanking MOH for the school supplies, and pledging to educate themselves so that they can help their village.
MOH is presently sponsoring three student scholarships to train a nurse, a midwife, and a community health officer, who will then work at the MCHP. We will also help to supply additional medical equipment, building materials, etc., as the project progresses.
This shipping container, packed full of furniture, office supplies, and even a pick-up truck will be repurposed as an operating room or laboratory for the new MCHP that we are building.
