A milestone for RHCI happened on Friday, October 30, 2015, the date of the first Outreach Clinic in the Tikonko Chiefdom, a partnership of the Tikonko Health Center and RHCI.   The collaboration was set up through meeting in July and August, with RHCI purchasing a motorbike for transportation and World Vision providing a second motorbike.  The Tikonko Health Center supplied the nurses, meds and vaccines with partial support from RHCI.

Infant Supplies and Birth Kits Sticky

The Methodist church women from White Bear Lake recently made 100 birth kits to be sent to Tikonko this summer. The Presbyterian Women of the Twin Cities area donated more than 50 infant kits this spring. We appreciate these donations along with the funds for shipping. These gifts truly make a difference to the women and babies in Sierra Leone. THANKS!!!!

After nearly a year delay schools reopened in Tikonko in April. This picture shows how happy the children were to be able to return to school. Thank you to First Presbyterian Church of White Bear Lake for the book bags and supplies they sent last year. These supplies were distributed in April.
