THE PROJECT WE SUPPORT: SIERRA LEONE

Since 2001 in Sierra Leone Emergency has treated 425,729 people (as of March 31, 2013)  
In 2001, EMERGENCY opened a Surgical Centre in Goderich, on the outskirts of Freetown, the country's capital. The Centre provides free high quality treatment in orthopaedics, trauma and emergency surgery.

In 2002, EMERGENCY opened a Paediatric Centre next to the Surgical Centre in order to guarantee treatment to children under 14.  
The child mortality rate in Sierra Leone is one of the highest in the world: malaria, malnutrition, respiratory and gastrointestinal infections are the main causes of death among children up to 5 years of age.   
The International staff is also committed to training local personnel: EMERGENCY's Surgical Centre has been recognized as a training institution for anaesthetist nurses by the Ministry of Health of Sierra Leone.   
Construction to expand the Surgical Centre in Goderich started in October 2010 in order to meet the needs of an increasing population. Works are currently undergoing without interfering with the clinical activities.

WHO IS EMERGENCY

EMERGENCY is an independent Italian organization.
EMERGENCY provides free, high quality medical and surgical treatment to the victims of war, landmines and poverty.
EMERGENCY promotes a culture of peace, solidarity and respect for human rights.
 Emergency's work around the world is made possible thanks to the help of thousands of volunteers and supporters. Emergency is also present in UK, USA, Japan and Switzerland.
 Since 1994 over 5,400,000 people in 16 countries have received free, high quality health care by EMERGENCY.

WHAT THEY DO

Emergency offers free of charge and high quality heath care to war and poverty victims.
 
In order to assert the right to healthcare for everyone, EMERGENCY:

  • guarantees treatment to anyone in need of assistance, without any sort of discrimination;
  • practices high quality medicine and employs standardized therapeutic and working protocols already tested in emergency situations;

  • basic health centres for primary healthcare;
  • paediatric and maternity centres;

HOW THEY OPERATE

We strongly believe that healthcare should be a basic human right.

Therefore EMERGENCY:

 
  • guarantees treatment to anyone in need of assistance, without any discrimination as to race, colour, sex, religion, social origin or political opinion;
  • provides high quality assistance and employs standardized therapeutic and work protocols already tested in emergency situations;
  • trains national staff thoroughly, with the intent of handing over all the health facilities to the local health authorities as soon as self-sustainability can be achieved.
  •

  • hospitals specifically dedicated to war victims and surgical emergencies;
  • physical and social rehabilitation centres;
  • first aid posts for emergency treatment and referral of patients to our surgical centres;
