The Kambia Appeal is a UK-based NGO that works to improve maternal and child health in the Kambia District in Sierra Leone
We do this by:
- Collaborating with the Government of Sierra Leone, the DHMT and other NGOs to reduce maternal and child mortality in Sierra Leone
- Empowering, training and developing local healthcare workers to deliver high quality healthcare in the Kambia District of Sierra Leone
- Contributing to the personal and professional development of UK health workers
- Recognising, growing and nurturing future healthcare workers to help them achieve their full potential in the field of health and wellbeing
- Jointly developing and sharing knowledge and skills in health and wellbeing
2019 saw the conclusion of a groundbreaking two and half year programme that we have been running in Kambia District to provide supportive supervision to Maternal and Child Health Assistants (MCHAs) enabled by two consecutive grants from the African Grant Programme managed by the Tropical Health and Education Trust (THET) and funded by Johnson & Johnson.

Our Scholarship programme continues and we have started a programme to refurbish Kambia Hospital’s Peripheral Health Centres (PHUs). Also we recently supplied 200 delivery kits to the Health Centres which will help staff perform their roles adequately. For more information look at the Projects and News sections of the website, and view our recent postings.
