2017 conference - Following our friends home. The amazing story of Adama Martha Memorial Community Health Center in Kono, Sierra Leone.

Posted by Kristy Tarrant at May 18, 2017

This is the story of Phebian Abdulai who fled the civil war in Sierra Leone and barely escaped with her life. In 2001 she and her family came to Buffalo as refugees. There they come to Jericho Road. Healing took place and gradually Phebian's live was restored. She worked for Jericho Road as a nurse and in 2009 felt God's call to return to Sierra Leone to start a health center in her home village. With the help of Jericho Road, Phebian did return to Sierra Leone in 2013 and, despite opposition, Phebian today leads a thriving health center in Kono that employs 60, provides primary health care to thousands, provides much needed obstetrical and surgical care and is considering expansion to other areas of Sierra Leone.
