Mr. Jinnah Kachina Lahai has been the Manager for Mercy for almost 6 years, but has decided to resign his post in order to spend more time with his family. Mr. Lahai was the longest serving hospital manager in Mercy's history. Many changes were implemented under Mr. Lahai's tenure, including the building of the surgical ward, the development of a hospital data collection system, and the recent construction improvements. Mr. Lahai's dream was to transform Mercy into a premiere health facility in the Bo region, and we certainly believe that dream has been achieved.
In his resignation speech he stated, "I enjoyed every bit of my time during my 5 years, 10 months and 15 days of continuous and dedicated service at Mercy Hospital. My special thanks goes to my immediate Supervisors (Rev Francis B. Charley and Matron Catherine Norman), Colleagues, Partners, and Local Management Committee Members who walked with me throughout my journey to have achieved the many landmarked successes. It is also my hope that my departure will not imperil in any way, considering the strong foundation for successes I have installed for my predecessor. Once again, I would like to thank you for all your guidance and assistance during my stint in Mercy. I hope to keep in touch in future. I wish Mercy, The United Methodist Church-Sierra Leone Annual Conference and Helping Children Worldwide a continued success for the future and hope to stay in touch."
Mr. Lahai also stated that he was always available if anyone at Mercy ever needed anything from him, as "Mercy Hospital is my baby."
We at HCW pray that he will find success and prosperity, and that his legacy at Mercy will be an ever-increasing good reputation and capacity to continue their excellent service to the sick and injured of Bo.
