With the “Saving Lives in Sierra Leone” project, we want to enable as many seriously ill patients as possible in Sierra Leone to receive medical treatment. The project is a cooperation between Just Human, the Connaught Hospital in Freetown and Caritas Sierra Leone.

Since Sierra Leone does not have health insurance, medical treatment must be paid for by those affected or their families themselves.

The treatment costs for a patient are very low compared to Germany and usually amount to only a few hundred euros, even for larger treatments. For many people in Sierra Leone, one of the poorest countries in Africa, they are unfortunately unaffordable.
Our project enables many of these vulnerable patients to receive treatment.

Our team of volunteers on the ground in Freetown around Mr. Almamy Bah is in close contact with the medical staff of Connaught Hospital, Sierra Leone’s largest hospital and point of contact for patients from all over the country, and with Caritas Sierra Leone.

If sick people cannot be treated due to a lack of financial resources, but urgently need treatment, the team at Connaught Hospital can call on the necessary funds from an emergency fund from just human. The emergency fund is managed by Caritas Sierra Leone to ensure a rapid transfer of funds. Caritas Sierra Leone also supports the administration and accounting of the funds from the emergency fund and is in close contact with just human.
Our common goal is to provide these patients with the medication they need on the same day and to enable the responsible doctors to receive the necessary treatment.

Whenever possible, we also try to help in hospitals outside the capital Freetown.
We have already been able to donate medicines to the hospitals in Kailahun, Pujehun and Koidu, which have been used to treat vulnerable patients free of charge.

You can support our project with your donation. Thank you very much for your help!
