Like most of Sierra Leone the Hospital is surrounded by trees. One of these trees was dying and was a danger to an old building. It was decided to cut the tree and use its parts to save the roof of the building it would have destroyed if it was left standing.
Like most manual work in Sierra Leone, it had to be done using only small hand held tools. The building rescued will be converted into a water filtering area, this is important as the Hospital must be able to provide itself with all essentials if it is to function properly as transport can be difficult and costly.
