Masanga Hospital is in the middle of the jungle in Sierra Leone. It was destroyed by rebels during the civil war.
In 2005 a Danish doctor started the process of reclaiming the hospital from the jungle.
MasangaUK, along with our Danish partners, is committed long term to create a fully functioning self-sustainable hospital at this site.
Our short term objectives are:
To refurbish a derelict building and supply equipment to create an admissions unit (building work is due to start in January).
To fund the running costs of the admissions unit and to improve the water supply to the hospital.
To provide education and training to the local staff so that they can deliver high quality care to patients.
We are also supporting medical students in the study of under researched tropical disease local to Masanga.
