THE STORY:

Our Challenge:
In a country with 6 million people
and only 7 gynecologists.


Sierra Leone ranks as one of the most dangerous places for women to give birth
and children to begin their life.


Our Solution:
Shine On Sierra Leone and Wellbody Alliance have
launched a Maternal & Child Healthcare program in alliance with the
First Lady of Sierra Leone.  We utilize the wisdom and experience of Community Healthcare Workers to bring this program to life.


We have not lost a single life since our program launched
in 2011. This is true progress.



Our Goal:
Increase our outreach.  Be a game changer and support us in winning the RYOT Challenge to purchase an Ambulance which will open our outreach to serve over 30,000 women and children and continue to be an innovative health
solution for pregnant women and children in Sierra Leone.


Deeper Insight:
Just one year after the program launched, initial antenatal checkups increased by 18% and final antenatal checkups increased by 36%. 83 women in the community with complications were successfully referred to the district hospital, compared to 27 in the preceding year. 


In alignment with helping the Millenial Development Goal in training 1,000,000 Commuity Healthcare Workers on the continent of Africa, this fundraiser is going to help continue our success by providing our community healthcare workers and clinics with sufficient tools to assist in safe birthing practices. 


Shine On!
