Charity description

Friends of Nixon Memorial Hospital logo
"Friends of Nixon" exists to support the work of the Nixon Memorial Hospital, Segbwema, a small rural Methodist mission hospital in Eastern Sierra Leone that serves an estimated 30,000 people.

The Friends of Nixon was established to provide a direct route of support for the Nixon Memorial Hospital in Sierra Leone.

The hospital is in an area of endemic poverty in one of the most deprived countries in the world. It faced partial destruction and temporary closure during the Sierra Leone civil war between 1991 and 2002 and recently encountered further tragedy during the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

Despite these challenges the hospital continues to survive in order to provide essential healthcare to its community who have huge unmet health needs.

Our trustees consist of a group of individuals from both Sierra Leone and the UK (many of
whom have worked at the hospital) who have a desire to support the work of the
hospital and facilitate improvements in the healthcare it provides.

We achieve this through funding training opportunities, community health work, infrastructure projects (most recently the new water well and pump) and essential medicine provision.
