More Water for Holy Spirit Hospital

Sierra Leone has very poor Maternal Health:  in the UK there were 9 Maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 2015, whereas in Sierra Leone there were 1360.

To address this problem our partner Holy Spirit Hospital in Makeni opened a new Maternity Ward towards the end of 2016. The Makeni Trust Fund funded developments to significantly improve the water supply for the hospital in 2010, and we are pleased to have been asked to help fund an additional borehole well required to meet the extra demand of the new Maternity Ward.

We hope this project will be completed before the start of the rainy season in 2017.
