In early June, Mercy Hospital was pleased to welcome a number of new staff: Deborah Boima (Community Health Officer), Theresa Swaray (State Certified Midwife),Winifred Smart, Hawa Jalloh, and Mariama Bangalie (Maternal and Child Health Aides), and Aminata Turary (laundress). These new "wonder women," have brought a great deal of enthusiasm and energy to Mercy in just one short month.
Theresa is happy to be on the Mercy team, "I like working at Mercy. Everyone is very nice. This week I am leading devotion. It is a new experience for me and I am a little nervous but I enjoy it!" Deborah agrees, adding, "I just got off of night duty and I am so tired, but it was a good night. The patients are doing well and recovering. So far I am enjoying Mercy."
"It already feels like a family, Hawa shared. "We have only been here a few weeks but everyone is so kind and I feel very welcome."
Hospital Administrator, Jinnah Lahai is pleased to welcome these women to Mercy. "They are really doing well. Those in maternity were a little bit intimidated at first after hearing about the great reputations of the maternity department. It is a big role to play. But they are really doing well."
