Rural Health Care Initiative
  • Partnering with Sierra Leone to save lives

Thank you, NOSLINA!

A very generous donation was made at the end of January by the National Organization of Sierra Leoneans in North America.  Orchestrated by their president Suna Nallo, NOSLINA presented the Mbao-mi Mothers’ Home with much needed appliances, including generator, freezer, two refrigerators, and a water pump.

RHCI is truly grateful for this major donation. These items will improve food storage and preservation, help with irrigation of the vegetable garden and fruit trees, and supply lighting at night. THANKS! Bika-ka-ka!
