  Masanga Hospital
 

The out-patients clinic

* treats between 100-150 patients per day.
* In 2007 we treated approximately 25,000 patients, admitted about 600 children and carried out 200 operations.
*We now employ a staff of 70, 25 of whom are student nurses.

The patient is examined and treated

* By our two senior CHOs (Community Health Officer) who have 3 yrs of basic medical training and are able to diagnose and treat the most frequently occurring illnesses.
* We have 4 nurses who are in charge of all medicine matters and who assist in diagnoses and treatment of the children admitted on the observation ward.
* A health nurse takes care of expectant mothers and children under 5,
* an assistant specially trained in leprosy and wound complications runs our wounds clinic.

A total of

    * 32 employees; the remainder are employed in the carpentry department, the maintenance- and security departments, administration, transport etc.
    * Our goal is to achieve a fully-developed and well-functioning hospital that by 2016 can manage by itself without outside help, under its own power.
    * This is why we are in the process of establishing workshops to generate revenue: carpentry, tailor and bicycle workshops etc will each bring in revenue by offering their .

To achieve this goal we require financial support that will enable us to secure improved development in one of the
world’s poorest countries. Sponsors will receive exposure on our home page and will receive regular information
of developments at Masanga. In-house presentations
outlining the project can also be arranged for corporate sponsors.

SLAA (Sierra Leonean Adventists Abroad) is a UK registered charity (no1085936) working for eradication of acute poverty through improved health and better education. It was formed by Adventist students in the UK in1992 to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by the war in Sierra Leone.   

 

SLAA has partnered with Danish group The Association of Frriends of Masanga (AFOM).  AFOM was formed in 2005 for the re-opening of the hospital in July 2006. It is an independent association that works together with all
who wish to contribute towards its goal – in the initial stages, the Lions Clubs in Denmark and the Adventist Church in Denmark have been crucial to the
project’s start.

Our local partner is TAMARANEH whose goal is to develop the hospital in co-operation with the local community.
