IRCS Fighting typhoid, malaria in Sierra Leone
FREETOWN/ TEHRAN, 30 November 2021 (IRCS) – Iranian Red Crescent Society rendered health and treatment services to people of Sierra Leone after the spread of typhoid and malaria in the country.
Since the diseases have impacted eastern Africa, IRCS’ Health Center deployed a fully-equipped team to examine suspected cases with fever, headache, nausea and diarrhea for free.
The people were also donated masks and antiseptic solution. During the project which lasted two weeks, the IRCS team rendered personal health tips to people, too.
Iranian Red Crescent’s health center was established in Lomeli in 2007 and enjoys general practitioner, dentist, gynecology, midwifery, pharmacy and laboratory.
