The medical mission is part of a Project titled: ‘Engaging the Diaspora to Strengthen the HEALTH, flood prevention and Agriculture Sectors in Sierra Leone’.

The program is funded by the Japanese Government and implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in collaboration with the Office of Diaspora Affairs and the Ministry of Health among others.

The Diaspora Medical Mission saw over one hundred people in Kailahun District received free screening and treatment including surgeries for hernia, fibroid and patients suffering from other ailments. Beneficiaries were well treated and given proper medications.

“I am now feeling better after I have gone through a successful surgical operation. I couldn’t have afforded to pay for it. But thanks be to God, the Diaspora doctors did it for me and I am once more healthy. This is the very first time we are benefiting from such a program in this part of the country,’’ Mamie Kamara, a beneficiary from Gbatorma Section in Kailahun said.

The Kailahun town chief, Maada Alpha Ndoleh in an interview with this press, praised the Diaspora medics, IOM and partners for delivering such a wonderful program to the people of Kailahun District.

“The Diaspora health care project is really laudable and timely because a lot of our people who are merely poor farmers cannot afford to pay for their medication, and especially the surgeries. So it’s really good that the project is brought to our district. On behalf of the local authorities of Kailahun, I want to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to all those who are involved in the implementation of this great project,” Chief Ndoleh said.
