    Dr. Fatu, thank you for sharing the start of your journey, so vivid and heartfelt. Your words are like a heart beat, a palpable expression of Sierra Leone’s serene beauty and pulsing pain. I’m certain your family and home land are glad you’re home. Be safe and well.

    Thanks for sharing you and Sheba’a experience. So sad for the kid and his family. You are limited with what you can do due to limited medical services. You will be richly Blessed by sharing your expertise and reducing mortality. Stay well and safe as you continue to challenge the huge endeavors ahead.

    Fatu sounds exciting, interesting and challenging……living and working in Freetown, the sadness death e.t.c will always be there but I am certain you will contribute to bringing joy to many out there. Now I feel like I need to give sometime to Salone.

    Hi Fatu, you and I connected through PMG. I shared with you the story of my move back to my homeland, Jamaica. Unfortunately, this is all too common in the third world. It’s heartbreaking and something I’ll never get use to. You are in my prayers, we are strong women do remarkable things. God bless you.

    Dr Fatu Forna, your new assignment is not by accident. Our beloved country has suffered a lot, ranging from socioeconomic disparities to brain drain. I trust that your timely return will leave foot prints on the sands of time. Good luck and godspeed.

    I love you! I follow your blog and you really inspire me. I have wanted to return to Freetown for ever. However i don’t know of what use I will be. It saddens me to hear these stories and to think what really are we doing? if we are not helping each other. I am grateful for your decision to go back home. I know its not easy, giving up your life here with your family and friends to go there. My hat goes off to you Dr Fatou Forna. I really hope to meet you one day, you are indeed an inspiration!! thanks for taking up this assignment and I hope and pray God empowers you with grace and resilience. God Bless you.
