WHI in Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone covers a multitude of projects. A trip to Sierra Leone would allow you to see the villages that have been changed through WHI Wells, hygiene training, and education. Another program that you can visit and see the work is Enable the Children. This program works with children who have mental or physical disabilities. Oftentimes these children are thought of as evil or a burden. WHI helps them with physiotherapy,  medical assistance, and education for the family and community.

Enable the Children

ETC is a team of local and expatriate staff who have provided Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy, care, and support services to over 1,000 children living with disabilities in Freetown, Sierra Leone. More than half of the children enrolled in ETC suffer from cerebral palsy; others cope with acquired brain injury, muscular dystrophy, orthopedic challenges, and many more. Children with Down syndrome or autism also face discrimination and limited opportunities.
