Tide out...

Shipments come in from NHA America and are received by James at NHA Sierra Leone.  Tide in, Tide out.  Once received James goes about distributing in the most needy places.

James, Kadijah and crew joined up with Nurse Ami recently to bring her medical supplies.

Nurse Ami manages a medical clinic.

She covers covers 15 villages in the Kabala area, including Kamasorie Village.

During James' recent visit (bringing the medical supply we shipped to him),  Ami, the village chief, Mr. Thuwai Mansaray, and others of the village greeted them.

  James reported they were most gracious and gave NHA a Dignitary's Welcome.  He said that they were "amazing and most kind to the NHA Staff".

James reported that the medicines, etc. that he had left at a previous visit were almost completely gone.

He noted that this distribution was "there just in time before they completely ran out".

 The the clinic is in need of all medical supplies and Nurse Ami is stretched to the limits with her patient load.

James was excited to see a working solar refrigerator to store medication that must remain cool.

Ami's Clinic is on our list and NHA will support them with whatever medical supplies we receive.  The Clinic and Ami are doing a remarkable work and we want to help them any way we can.
