SLES donates Medical equipment to Cottage Hospital

The Sierra Leone Epilepsy Society (SLES) has donated some medical equipment to Cottage hospital as part of their support to the free health care delivery system in the country.
The items which include Hospital beds, Catheter Foley, Bowl/Tray, Drape Medium, Dressing ABD, Gauze 2×2/3×3, Glove Exam Large, Sphygmomanometer, Stethoscope and many others were among medical items presented to the Minister of Health and Sanitation for use at Cottage hospital.
Making the presentation on Saturday 22nd January, 2011 at the Cottage Hospital on Fourah Bay Road, Freetown the National Coordinator of the Sierra Leone Epilepsy Society; Jossie Alusine Kabia said the items were part of medical equipment donated by Cross Link International to SLES but they came to realize that some of those medical tools could be more useful to Cottage Hospital who are dealing with young children, Pregnant women and lactating mothers. Cross International is a humanitarian organization that provides medical facilities to deprived group of people that are suffering from different ailments.
He said the donation would have been made to another hospital but then decided on Cottage hospital primarily because they wanted to demonstrate their support to the effort of government in providing quality medical care with improved facilities to under five children, pregnant women and Lactating mothers in Sierra Leone.
Receiving the items on behalf of the Hospital the Minister of Health and Sanitation Zainab Bangura thanked the Sierra Leone Epilepsy Society for this big boost they have given the hospital. She also thanked those that made this donation possible as she called on Sierra Leoneans and other organizations to help in which ever way they can to improve the health situation in the country.
The Consultant and Doctor in charge of Cottage Hospital Dr. Ibrahim Thorlie assured the National Coordinator of SLES that the items will be used for their intended purpose and he hoped that these items will help them in the quality delivery of health service to the people.
