Mende Curve Health centre in dire need
Kambia, June (SLENA) – The new health and community nurse at Mende Curve, Bamoi Luma in the Kambia District, Maria Kamara has expressed her frustration over the lack of safe drinking water at the centre.
Speaking to SLENA recently, nurse Kamara said the lack of water is affecting the delivery of babies as well as out-patients visiting the centre. “The situation is more acute with pregnant women who come to deliver. Their relatives had to travel far distances to fetch water,” she lamented.
Nurse Kamara told SLENA that there had been several calls for a water-well to be constructed at the centre. “The absence of a water well has created a lot constraints for us,” she added and appealed to the government through the Health and Sanitation ministry to provide the health centre with what she referred to as useable water to keep the centre up and running so that President Koroma’s free health care initiative remains relevant to pregnant and suckling women at Bamoi Luma.
Mende Curve is about three miles outside Bamoi Luma, one of Sierra Leone’s largest international trading centres.
