Welbodi Partnership is working to improve child health in Sierra Leone, West Africa 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.
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 installing an x-ray machine and training local staff to use it is $120,000. We have already secured half the funds for the project from a charitable foundation. To access these funds we have to match these contributions by raising another $60,000 (USD 95,000) in the next two months.
This is a unique opportunity for you to double your money. Please partner with us! Any money donated through this page, http://www.justgiving.com/xrayappeal will go directly to this appeal.
