The Director, Office of Diaspora Affairs (ODA) Mr. Kallay Musa Conteh has on Sunday 9th April 2017 received a Team of twenty Sierra Leonean Diaspora Medical Professionals including some few other African Diaspora Medics from the United States of America at the Lungi International Airport.

 

The objective of their mission is to offer their home country free medical services in order to complement Government's effort in the President's Recovery Priorities.

 


According to a member of the Medical Volunteer Team, Zainab Bangura Dalboyi, a Respiratory Therapist, the medical mission was conducted by the African Diaspora Coordinating Office (ADCO) in collaboration with the African Women's Cancer Awareness Association and Osman Boie Kamara Foundation.

 

On Monday 10th April, 2017 at the Connaught Hospital, the team of volunteer medical professionals started to deliver free health care services including dental care, eye care, pediatric, health promotion (like promoting awareness of breast cancer) early detection and referral, health screening and medications to Sierra Leoneans who are in need of these services. The Medical Mission aimed at reaching Sierra Leoneans; particularly the less fortunate who cannot afford basic medical care and have difficulty in accessing medical facilities.

 

The President of the African Diaspora Coordinating Office, Mamadu Juma Bah said the one week clinic which they have started on Monday 10th April will end on Friday 15th April 2017. "The free medical services will be hosted at Connaught Hospital, Under five Clinic at JennerWright Road Up gun and Well Woman Clinic at Murray Town'' Mr. Bah noted.

 

Meanwhile, the African Diaspora Coordinating Office (ADCO) engages the African Diaspora Community for their full and active participation in Social and Economic Development of the Africa Continent, and this is their first Diaspora Medical Mission to Sierra Leone.
