Welbodi, Sierra Leone 96 images Created 17 Feb 2011
The Welbodi Partnership works to support the Ministry of Health and Sanitation in Sierra Leone to deliver high quality paediatric care. The work of the charity is designed to stimulate lasting change, whether through one-time investments with long-term benefits, or ongoing engagement around key issues, and the charity's long-term commitment is reflected in its approach to funding - their aim is to establish an endowment fund for the hospitals with which they work. The charity's work is conceived, designed, led and implemented by local partners. Hospital staff in Sierra Leone often already know the best solutions to the numerous problems they face, and where they don't, they are the best judges of new ideas. So the role of the Welbodi Partnership is to coordinate funding, international expertise and local know-how to facilitate improvements in the delivery of health care. They also work to build relationships and consensus with leaders within the Government of Sierra Leone, local health facilities, donors, NGOs and international partners. Welbodi Partnership works to instil a culture of innovation and excellence with partners and their team of experts. They constantly question the assumptions that underlie their work and the tools that they use, evaluate their efficacy and adapt what they do appropriately.
