The ultra-modern Choithram Memorial Hospital in collaboration with Bintumani Association will be conducting a Paediatric Surgical Camp from 28th February to 12th March, 2020.
It was revealed by Management of the hospital that a team of German Paediatric Surgeons, who have been visiting Sierra Leone since 2010, will be performing various surgeries free-of-charge at Choithram Memorial Hospital, on Hill Station, Freetown.
Again it was intimated that patients aged 15 years and below, will be screened at the Choithram Memorial Hospital.
This is not the first time that Choithram Memorial Hospital is organizing a Pediatric Surgical Camp as it has been doing so in a bid to complement Government’s efforts to provide free health services to the less privileged in the country.
Speaking to this medium in an interview, Dr. Gowrinath M. George, Medical Superintendent of Choithram Memorial Hospital said the offer of the free treatment is part of their Corporate Social Responsibility as an institution, adding that the free screening and treatment is geared towards providing qualitative and free treatment. He went on to divulge that the organization of these periodic camps is in line with the aim and objective of the founder of the hospital, Pa Choithram, a philanthropist who had a dream to provide medical succour for the poor and needy who could not afford to pay medical bills.
“I want Sierra Leoneans to be making use of these opportunities as it is very much important for individuals to be regularly doing medical check-ups,” he enjoined.
Please contact +232 76 292082 or visit the Hospital between 2.00 pm and 4.00 pm from Monday to Friday to register for screening.
