Sierra Leone Supporters.
Numbers do not tell the full story of the Adama Martha Memorial Community Health Center but here are a few to illustrate the hard work of this team that so many of you are supporting with your prayers and finances.
There are 68 paid staff. There have been 148 babies born since opening in February 2015. There have been no material deaths but unfortunately three newborns have died. Since the surgery center opened in March 2016, there have been 123 hernia repairs completed. There are 16,335 individual patients and 27,692 total patient visits since opening last year. A total of 1,485 patients have been seen in the mobile clinic outreach to the five surrounding villages since restarting in October 2015.
Below are a few pictures of our staff and health center in operation.
