After our two successful trips to Sierra Leone in 2013 and 2014, we planned to return again in 2015. Unfortunately, the Ebola outbreak prevented our trip from occurring.
We returned to Sierra Leone in April of 2016 with a missionary group from Indian Creek Christian Church. Our Prosthetic Team included 2 prosthetists, 1 prosthetic technician, 1 physical therapist, and 1 occupational therapist. The team worked hard and provided care to as many amputees as they could. Over the course of 5 busy days, 26 new prostheses were fitted and follow-up care was provided to 15 of our previous patients. In addition, we measured 40 people for new prostheses.
