The clinic will work with partners in Sierra Leone to provide various services for Ebola survivors, including eye health, mental health and psychosocial services, food services, and education and awareness building. The clinic will be established in a rehabilitated building in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), local stakeholders, including city council, communities, and the Bombali EVD Survivor Association.
