Medical Elective Students

Annie Brunskill and Olivia are final year medical students from the University of Manchester. They joined the SSLDF team for 4 weeks, as part of their medical school elective, after reading about SSLDF and MCH on our website. They chose to come to Sierra Leone because of their interest in healthcare in developing countries, and to understand the challenges we face in the hospital. During their stay they visited various medical facilities throughout Freetown and Makeni. They were very excited to be a part of the team and to meet the hospital staff, in hopes of learning from their experience, and better appreciate Sierra Leonean culture.
