Hernia Project
We have funded over 250 hernia operations at Masanga Hospital, Holy Spirit Hospital and Kenema Government Hospital for young patients and adults – please consider setting up a standing order today… just £10 a month will change a life and may even save a life!

With your help we funded over 100 hernia operations during 2022 - thank you !

We sponsored our first ever umbilical operation for a child in January 2022 since then we have funded over 250 operations with your support ! 

 https://www.masangahospital.org/

Umbilical hernias are very common in Sierra Leone and are mainly due to low birth weight and premature births.
Umbilical hernia operations are simple procedures which have a huge impact on patients’ lives.
They cost on average £120 – yes only £120 !

Hernias go untreated due to lack of income and they worsen with time becoming unsightly, uncomfortable and dangerous as part of the intestine protrudes through the wall of the cavity around the umbilicus.

NHS UK Information on umbilical hernia operations:

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/umbilical-hernia-repair/

Operations only cost £120 – please consider setting up a monthly standing order so that we can fund more life changing and life saving operations ! People are too poor to pay for such operations and children often have to suffer the consequences of these uncomfortable. painful and potentially dangerous hernias. Parents cannot afford to pay for the operations and in many cases children affected are orphans.

Thank you for your support – you are changing and saving lives !!
We have funded over 250 hernia operations since January 2022 – thank you !

TRUSTEES PLEDGE

We spend every penny raised on direct support to provide water wells, build schools, provide medical care and bring hope to poor communities.

Since the charity was born we have travelled to Sierra Leone once (2012), having modern technology and strong partnerships means we do not need to travel to the projects.

100% of the money raised is used for direct assistance to the most needy.

WATER WELL APPEAL 8601 -£2500

A big thank you goes out to all our corporate sponsors and to all those private donors who have set up a monthly bank standing order - thank you !!
