Child Reintegration Centre student Mohamed Kamara underwent a successful bilateral hernia surgery at Mercy Hospital. While Mohamed was recovering, the CRC provided additional support to the family, including a cash gift and a 25 kg bag of rice.
Children in the developing world often suffer from hernias, which may be the result of a congenital weakness in the abdominal muscles, or caused by severe coughing that leads to increased abdominal pressure. Left untreated, umbilical and inguinal hernias can lead to severe health complications in children.
Mohamed attends St. Andrews Secondary School, where he is in class SS3. Mohamed is currently not sponsored. If you would like to sponsor this deserving student, please email us at email@example.com.
To celebrate a year of saving lives in one of the most medically under-served regions in the world, the dedicated staff of Mercy Hospital held a festive End of Year party on the grounds of the hospital. The staff shared a bounteous potluck dinner and shared memories of the past year.
Hospital Administrator Jinnah Lahai and Head Matron Augusta Kpanabaum presented each of the staff members with a certificate of thanks for their good work serving vulnerable children and families throughout the year.
As the year draws to a close, Mercy has much to celebrate, and we are grateful for the hundreds of lives they have saved in 2019, through hospital services and village outreach.
