Freetown Sierra Leone

Arina Tamborska brought MedAID equipment to Connaught Hospital, Freetown in Sierra Leone during Spring 2018 as part of her 6th Year elective trip. Sutures, syringes and laryngoscopes from the store were among the equipment transported and these were used to deliver a staff trauma training course to improve care at the hospital. 

This experience was arranged through the King’s Sierra Leone Partnership, which is a collaboration that brings together the hospital, the country’s medical school and the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, contributing to projects that aim to strengthen the system of healthcare in Sierra Leone.
