Building Communities in
We partnered with the district of Pujehun to bring universal access to healthcare for the most vulnerable and rural communities of the country.
We have so far built two health campuses, providing treatment to over 30,000 people and having provided services to deliver 700 healthy babies.
Our goal is to give each community the tools they need to thrive. Schools will be built alongside our health campuses to ensure villagers have the knowledge they need to make the best decisions for their future.
Build a School
Change the future of thousands of children.
“There’s a swelling optimism that the new Thaakat Foundation health facilities will change the dynamics of Maternal and Child health and general healthcare service delivery in the community and beyond.
We saw inspired nurses radiating feelings of joy and determination to work and do what they do best; save lives.
We saw lactating mothers and pregnant women now exuding new found confidence and hope in the healthcare system.
We saw kids and patients beaming with smiles while happily posing for pictures, eager to share their stories.”

Ensuring sanitation & disease reduction
We are working to reduce the instances of mosquito-borne malaria.
Malaria is the single largest cause of illness in Pujehun, Sierra Leone. At any given time, more than half of the population in our served communities will test positive.
Every year, we implement several rounds of malaria education and prevention in the communities we work in. From rapid testing to concierge on site treatment and insecticide spraying–we hope our services help to curb the burden of this terrible disease.

Decreasing maternal fatalities
Sierra Leone’s maternal mortality rates are the highest in the world and a third of all infants do not live to see the age of five. Our goal is to increase child and maternal survival rates by providing free and quality access to healthcare.

Reducing Malaria Transmission
As we review monthly statistics and challenges at our center, we continue to see spiking malaria rates. We work to interrupt malaria transmission by depleting mosquito breeding grounds and encouraging good sanitation and self-protection.
