The Medical Doctor said they are not more focus on the number of cases treated but rather the level of relationship and confidence they had built, pointing out that the local staffs were very instrumental from start of the exercise to the end. He said lots of experiences were shared on both sides from the ways of treating certain cases to ways of performing certain types of surgeries which according to him was part of their success stories during the visit.
“If you remember at the beginning of the week, we said the number of cases was not important or number of people but our presence here is to establish the relationship and serve as motivators to other groups out there that want to undertake similar venture in assisting your people,” Dr. Salvagno pointed out.
“If our brothers and sisters can come over with similar team to their respective districts the health status of our people will be far better than it is at present because there are more out there that are doctors, nurses, engineers, among others,” noted Malik Jalloh, one of the Sierra Leoneans in the group.
Malik was making this plea whilst expressing his frustration over the health status of citizens especially in Koinadugu district with bad roads and hard-to-reach places, stating that he was able to make their trip to Sierra Leone a success because of the passion he had for the country. He said convincing the medical team of twelve (12) to come and offer the free operations was not easy on his part because the country was facing health threat but their coming has significantly laid that fear of which they are hopeful of coming in October.
