THE STORY:

Follow this Campaign on Facebook!

 

“Docta tenki a don yeri me pikin cry this tem"(Thank you Doctor, I heard my baby cry) said Kumba when I entered the delivery room. Kumba is a 28 year-old woman married to a soldier living in the military barracks. All three of Kumba’s previous pregnancies had ended in stillbirth. This baby, her little pikin, was her first after years of struggle.

Feeling very happy, I asked to see the boy. The nurse showed me to the postnatal room where he lay wrapped in his mother’s cloth. Unwrapping the cloth—there is no breath, no heartbeat. When, how, and what happened nobody could tell me. Kumba’s boy had died, how were we to tell her?

 - Dr. Mohamed Bailor Barrie

Maternal care is a piece amongst many creating the reality of health in Sierra Leone. Wellbody Alliance is working in Kono District of Sierra Leone, one of the most war-torn and underserved regions, to create an effective and sustainable healthcare system. Our work is rooted in the belief that that high-quality healthcare is a human right, and that nobody in Kono should die a death that wouldn’t happen in America or Europe.

Dr. Barrie, one of only five physicians serving the 450,000 people of Kono District, has boldly decided to take on the 2013 NYC Marathon on behalf of Wellbody Alliance in hopes of creating a healthier future for the people of Sierra Leone.  

Please support Dr. Barrie as he takes on this incredible challenge!
