Despite steps towards financial independence, we are still in need of financial contributions in order to secure the continued development of the project as well as the running costs. We do have a collaboration with the Government of Sierra Leone and are working towards a gradual handover of most of the running costs. We are committed to long-term sustainability and admit, that this is not achieved through donation alone, but more short-term donations are needed in order to prepare ourselves for financial independence and to secure the investments already made within the project. You can read more about the different ways to get financially involved under the tab ”SUPPORT OUR WORK”.
Sponsors and Partners
Without the organizations, the businesses and the individuals that have helped the project financially over the years we would have not been able to get this far. We sincerely thank you all!
There is, however, still a long ways to go and we still need donations and help. Since the hospital was re-opened in 2006, we have treated more than 120 000 patients and this would have not been possible without the generous support from the many sponsors and partners within the project. The largest are highlighted below:
Lions Club is the worlds larget humanitaruan organisation. I Denmark the 7500 members are evenly distributed among 350 local Lions Clubs. These are divided into four districts. One of these districts, Lions Distrikt 106 A, chose to support the Masanga project since the very beginning and is still supporting us presently as a district activity. We are extremely greatfull for this important collaboration and hope for it to continue in the years to come.
Aleris-Hamlet private Hospitals
In 2016 Masanga Dk and Aleris-Hamlet initiated a 5 year partnership with a large annual donation from Aleris-Hamlet supporting our work. The employees within the Aleris-Hamlet organization are deeply committed and raise funds internally as well in order to contribute to the project.
Multicenter Syd is our partner when it comes to collecting used equipment relevant for our work, packing and shipping it. We have sent 22 containers to Sierra Leone and 19 of these have gone through Multicenter Syd where youths are simultaneously trained in container logistics.
IBIS, soon to be Oxfam-IBIS, is a large Danish NGO that conducts educational programmes all over the world. We have made a Memorandum of Understading with IBIS where we seek to collaborate on educational programs in the Tonkolilli District. IBIS has been an active partner in the creation of Tonkolilli District College of Health Sciences, located at Masanga Hospital premises, and holds a seat in the College Board.
In Freetown our International fundraiser benefits from the IBIS office facilities and know-how and in Denmark the two organizations have also vastly benefited from each other.
And several others…
