Linda has a unique story of a poor little girl growing up in a very deprived community in Sierra Leone, a country with the highest infant and maternal mortalities in the world. She saw the desperate need to improve the healthcare system, with a critical focus on Reproductive Health. Unfortunately, Linda lost her aunt during childbirth, who was in labor for 3 days and ended up losing her life together with the unborn child for lack of access to quality healthcare due to poverty. There was no health facility in the village, and the only available hospital is located in Maguraka which is a 3-hour drive away from Linda’s Village ( Mamaka) on a rough road, sometimes impossible to cross. Her aunt needed C-Section but to no avail. She bled to death together with the unborn child. This heartbreaking loss deeply affected Linda. She determined to prevent such tragedies from occurring again in her community, she made a vow to dedicate her life to healthcare and the well-being of her community. Linda pursued her education relentlessly, immersing herself in the field of nursing. Her passion and dedication led her to further her nursing career in the United States, where she honed her skills and became a renowned nurse.
