There is a tremendous need for accessible health care in Sierra Leone. Education and healthcare especially for women and children are a great challenge for these communities. There is only one community hospital in Waterloo which is a few kilometers from Maboikardor village . WCC aims to provide newborn babies and their mothers in Sierra Leone with an improved quality of life and access to up- to- date healthcare services .
The main purpose of this project is to help provide necessary and effective health care in Maboikardor village in Sierra Leone, in order to assist mothers and babies. There are three pillars that this project is based upon: Family planning , health intervention and economic benefits. For every dollar spent on family planning, Sierra Leone is estimated to save U$ 2.1 dollars, with particular to rural communities (Keen, 2017).
Healthcare especially for women and children are a great challenge for these communities.There is a tremendous need for accessible health care in the Maboikardor community (Sierra Leone) Specifically there is a need for centres targeted to the delivery of health education and clinical care in order to improve the lives of the communities and combat issues surrounding child birth and early infant care. The quantity of health services and conditions of the locations is severely insufficient.
Once these facilities are established, they will be able to operate without high levels of involvement from international organizations. In this way we are able to not only promote better health care services and education, but also to empower the local communities and teach them to promote the work that we began.
