Ebola Response in Freetown

Since 2013, the King's Sierra Leone Partnership (KSLP) has been working with local partners to strengthen the country's fragile health system, damaged by years of civil war. 

When the Ebola outbreak struck Sierra Leone in May 2014, very few NGOs were able to stay in the country and help, and because of the lack of the existing state of healthcare and training, the Sierra Leonean government wasn’t equipped to tackle the epidemic alone.

The KSLP team made the decision to stay in Sierra Leone, and quickly became one of the major front line respondents of Sierra Leone’s Ebola outbreak, working with the government, the army and other NGOs to stop the spread of the virus.

King’s alumni and supporters raised over £580,000 to cover supplies used during the outbreak such as personal protection suits, gloves and chlorine, as well as paying for flights and accommodation so more volunteer doctors and nurses would join the KSLP team.

As a result the KSLP were able work a huge difference. During the Ebola crisis they:

- Managed over 1,100 Ebola cases

- Pioneered a model of rapidly establishing isolation facilities, which was scaled-up throughout the region

- Helped six hospitals across Freetown set up Holding Units

- Trained over 50 healthcare workers to support the crisis nationally

Now the Ebola crisis is abating, KSLP is returning to its original purpose – to strengthen Sierra Leone’s health system so that the country will be better equipped to tackle future medical emergencies, like Ebola.

There are currently only 150 doctors, eight surgeons and no psychologists at all, to serve a population of over six million Sierra Leoneans. Your donation will allow KSLP to work with local medical schools to train more urgently-needed doctors, nurses and surgeons.
