Supporting Hospitals Program
Functioning, clean and safe hospitals are vital to a country’s health advancement. Since 1996, World Hope International has been involved in numerous efforts to improve hospital conditions in the countries in which we work. From providing infrastructure developments and generators to Zimba Mission Hospital in Zambia to building and financially supporting the Wesleyan nursing school in Haiti, to financing salaries and supplies and equipment at Kamakwie Wesleyan Hospital in Sierra Leone to keep staff employed, World Hope International believes in the importance of improving hospitals to improve the overall health of an entire country. Currently, WHI’s hospital improvement work is focused around our Ebola prevention and treatment efforts in Sierra Leone. For example, WHI, in partnership with General Electric and Project HOPE, provided four Clinics in a Can(CIC) to remote regions of Northern Sierra Leone. Retrofitted with solar power and operated by Kamakwie Wesleyan Hospital and the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health, these 20-foot CIC’s operate off the grid and provide much needed healthcare access to more than 10,000 people. In addition, WHI, with funding from UKAID, was able to transform and help re-open the Makeni Government Hospital in Sierra Leone, which was originally declared unsafe and shut down in December 2014 due to poor infrastructure and a lack of infectious disease education among staff.
