First Aid Posts
EMERGENCY operates First Aid posts in Lokomasama and Waterloo.
Although the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone has finally ended, we are still needed in the country: the epidemic has, in fact, made the already weak health system even more precarious.
That’s why our commitment towards the people of Sierra Leone continues: at our Surgical and Paediatric Centre in Goderich, a point of reference for the whole country, and at the First Aid Posts (FAPs) in Lokomasama (opened November 2015) and Kissi Town, Waterloo (January 2016).
At the FAPs, our local staff guarantee first aid assistance 24 hours a day (“continuity like this isn’t so common in Sierra Leone” explains Luca, our coordinator in the country) and are always ready to transfer urgent patients to Goderich, thanks to our ambulance.
The First Aid posts in Lokomasama and Waterloo are co-funded by the European Union – EU Delegation to Sierra Leone.
Location: Lokomasama and Waterloo
