Our Impact

Nutrition Initiative

During our monthly pop-up clinics our doctors have diagnosed some form of malnutrition in 80% of the children they see(see photos). As of the end of May, we will begin a re-feeding program for severe acute malnutrition in children under the age of five. Our staff will be trained by clinicians from Project Peanut Butter & Partners in Health.

Our Covid-19 Initiative

We provided 80 hand-washing stations, which include spigots, lids, catch basins, soap and pictorial educational posters for the villagers who can’t read, as well as teaching them a hand-washing song!

January Pop-Up Clinic

Our January 2021 pop-up clinic has been successful, thanks to our donor David Miller and District Health Officer, Dr. Desmond Kangbai, who assisted us with the medical team. Our doctors discovered that two boys, aged 8 and 2,  suffered from hernias and needed surgery in Kailahun, several hours  away from home. MOH sponsored their procedures & MOH staff stayed with them overnight in the hospital. Both boys have recovered well and are happy & healthy.

64 Fruit Trees

In 2019, the women of Ngolahun planted 64 fruit tree seedlings and have been watering and fertilizing them as part of an MOH community project. The trees have flourished under their care, and will provide fruit for the hospital staff and patients. More fruit trees are being planted around the guest house.
