Sierra Leone, West Africa

The Ebola Outbreak

Sierra Leone was in the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak that started in 2013 which resulted in the deaths of almost 4 thousand in that country, and over 11,000 in the region. The impact on the economy of one of the poorest nations and regions has been devastating, and it will take years to recover.

Morningstar Clinic

Project 8110 supports the work of Morningstar Clinic in the city of Bo. Many people avoided visiting medical clinics and hospitals during the Ebola outbreak because of concerns of contracting the virus. Now that the Ebola crisis is over, many are seeking care, which is placing a significant burden on the clinic.

Our Concern

Most people there do not have access to dental care and suffer with infection and pain, resorting to DIY dentistry or seeking care from unqualified providers, resulting in trauma and increased infection and pain.
