We bid farewell to a visionary leader, and welcome a new head of hospital

It is with sadness but with great affection that the Ola During Children’s Hospital and the Welbodi Partnership bid farewell to Dr Muctarr AS Jalloh, who retired in August as head of the hospital. We cannot thank Dr, Jalloh enough for all he’s done for the hospital, nor express how much he will be missed. He has been a core supporter of the Welbodi Partnership and the Sierra Leone Institute for Child Health from the very beginning, and we would never have been able to get off the ground without him.

We won't say goodbye to Dr. Jalloh, because we know he'll stay a friend and supporter. In the meantime, we only hope that our work will be a fitting legacy for Dr. Jalloh’s tremendous commitment to the hospital and the children of Sierra Leone, and we send him all of our best wishes in his new endeavors.

We also want to send a warm welcome Dr. David Baion, the new acting specialist-in-charge, and wish him all the very best in his new position.
