The Kambia Appeal has been helping to improve maternal and child health in Sierra Leone since 1992.  Our work focuses on strengthening local health services for women and children in Kambia District.

The Kambia District Hospital remains open, but is running a limited health service.  In October and November 2014, 85% of the Kambia health staff were in quarantine.

We are in regular communication with our local project team at our Base in Kambia Town.  Moses, Charles, Abass and Morlai are all currently safe and well.

The Kambia Appeal Trustees took the unanimous decision to withdraw our Long-Term Volunteer team in May.  This was an extremely difficult decision for us to make, but being a small organisation, we believed that we could not provide the necessary logistical support to our volunteers if they were to contract the Ebola virus.  Our grant programmes are now currently on hold until there is a clearer picture of how we can assist Kambia once the outbreak is declared over.

In the meantime, we are raising funds to support the work of the Kambia District Health Management Team.  This includes funds to assist the outreach work of Community Health Workers undertaking house-to-house visits to promote good health practices and to protect families from Ebola.

Please consider making a donation to support this vital work via the online facilities below.
