Via Awareness Times: Sierra Leonean Doctor Volunteers to Help in the Fight against Ebola. Excerpt:
Dr. Ishmael Foday Bangura is General Practitioner at the Bahrain Specialist Hospital (BSH) – a medical hospital that stands as a center of excellence in the Arabian Gulf. It is a highly specialized Medical Center that provides up to date medical services by experienced Consultants and Specialists, using the latest technologies with the-state-of-the-art medical equipment and systems.
In a telephone interview with him last night, he called on all Sierra Leonean medical practitioners particularly those specialized in the treatment of viral hemorrhagic fevers, to join the Sierra Leone Government and its International partners in the fight against the spread of Ebola.
Dr. Conteh said: “It’s high time we go to our country to save lives at this crucial time. This is the time we should sacrifice for our country and this is the time our country needs us most.”
Like the late Dr. Umar Khan, he said on the phone, we should go home now and let the world know that Sierra Leoneans are true patriots. "I will take my leave at any time from now to go to my one and only country and help in the fight against the deadly disease. I am therefore appealing to my colleagues around the world to follow-suit,” the Sierra Leonean Doctor concluded.
