is always that one place
you can go in Sierra Leone
to get a little relief
from the hustle and bustle
while also cooling off from the hot sun.
People go to and fro, across the waters to the beach searching for a release from the daily grind.
This last weekend people crowded Lumley Beach for a different relief. The government is now offering free healthcare to women and children.
Men and women with children in tow, queued up in long lines, waiting to have their sick child examined.
The medical staff is limited and overworked, but they stayed the day hoping to see as many as they could. Unfortunately, the amount of sick children (and adults) is overwhelming.
This is why it is so important for NHA to do what it can in its own small way. Every act (small or large) makes a difference.
As difficult as this scene is, all of these people needing healthcare and not enough medical staff and medicines to go around, at least there is something being done. It is a start and people are being given somewhat of a chance. This program has not reached the villages that NHA works in. It may be years before they are offered mass medical attention such as this. Therefore, it is vital that NHA do all that we can to maintain the aid that we give in the remote villages. They are depending on us. Please stretch out your hand to reach into their lives and give them a chance. Give to NHA today.
