Idriss Gipson Mansaray, project manager Caritas Freetown, said since last month the project had been on track in the urban area, adding that the project was also designed to help people in the remote communities.

He said 40 communities had already been targeted in the Western Area, especially the slums. He further said that during the Ebola crisis there was a huge mistrust amongst people and medical practitioners, adding that that was why they were doing some sensitisation.

“Our main goal is to ensure wellbeing. We also do counselling, consultation and provide medication for people”, Idriss said.

Health coordinator, David Bob Kissinger, said that the mobile clinic was treating some four hundred people per day, adding that the most common cases were typhoid, malaria, HIV, and skin infections. He also affirmed that they had provided on-the-spot treatment, but if the case was serious they had referred it to the hospitals.

One of the beneficiaries, Victor Buck, said he was happy because he had been treated for Malaria and his daughter, who was also sick, had been provided with care.
