The name Dr. Rashida Kamara is synonymous with excellence as it brings to mind a retired female medical doctor who served this country for many years as the Police Doctor examining assault cases. Today, the name has re-emerged again as excellence in person of one of Sierra Leones young, promising and fine female medical doctors who is also named Dr. Rashida Kamara. On Saturday August 1st 2015, this fine young lady embarked on a donation exercise of dozens of Infection, Prevention and Control (IPC) supplies to a number of Government Hospitals across the countrys capital, Freetown.


Among the targeted hospitals were: Connaught hospital, PCMH, 34 Military Hospital, Ola During, the ADRA Ebola Treatment Center (ETC) at Waterloo, amongst others.

 

The donation, undertaken on behalf of a British NGO called Make It Happen in Sierra Leone is aimed at helping promote new mandatory protocols in the hospitals, known as Infection, Prevention and Control protocols.

Dr. Kamara is a member of Make It Happen in Sierra Leone which is funded by a gentleman named Michael Colin who has also been assisting an Ebola Treatment Unit which Kamara has been running. Colin provided water, clothing and hand soaps.

 

However, reports state, the centre was closed down in July and Dr Rashida has seen the need to distribute to government hospitals the items which hospital staffs and patients are indirect need of for IPC protocols to be enhanced.

She is reported as being highly dedicated and committed to the execution of her professional duties as a Medical Doctor.
