Good and affordable care for everyone
The mission of Lion Heart Foundation is to provide good, accessible and affordable health care to the people of the Tonkolili district in Sierra Leone. The aim is to guide the Lion Heart Medical Center in Yele towards self-reliance and to transfer the healthy independently to the local organization in Sierra Leone. Our mission is successful if we have made ourselves superfluous and the Lion Heart Medical Center functions independently of the Lion Heart Foundation.
LHMC is still managed by three expats in close collaboration with local employees. These are trained to take over the management gradually and to arrive at independent and 'sustainable' local management.
Making ourselves redundant - the history of the Foundation
The way in which the Lion Heart Foundation approaches projects fits in seamlessly with our mission. When a project is completed, we hand it over to the local management.
