We worked in Guinea for more than 15 years. Alongside the Guinean government, we worked on improving healthcare for mothers and children, and support family planning services. We also supported health and nutrition teaching in schools, and worked to improve the quality of education.
When the Ebola crisis hit Guinea, our teams worked with communities, organisations and journalists to raise awareness of the disease and prevent it spreading. We supplied hygiene kits to families and trained community health workers to trace people who had been in contact with infected patients.
In the aftermath, our staff supported child survivors and trained 13,000 teachers in Guinea in how to respond to traumatised children.
