This event marked a significant milestone in enhancing healthcare services for the local community and its surrounding villages, bringing hope and excitement to the residents through the First Lady’s support for the health sector.

In her address, Dr. Fatima Maada Bio highlighted the impressive progress made under the leadership of President Bio, noting the substantial increase in the number of nurses. “The President has raised the number of nurses from 3,000 to over 10,000 in just six years,” she remarked.

He extended his thanks to President Bio for his unwavering support of the healthcare sector in Sierra Leone.
