Former AC Milan football star Rodney Strasser, renowned for his illustrious career on the field, has stepped up to address a critical need at the Princess Christian Maternity Hospital (PCMH) on Monday May 14, 2024 by donating a 100KVA generator and 325 liters of fuel valued at NLe10,050. The donation, facilitated through the Rodney Strasser Foundation, comes in response to an urgent appeal from the Sick Pikin Project following the tragic loss of a baby due to power outage.

Speaking at the donation ceremony, Strasser, who himself was born at PCMH and raised in the vicinity, emphasized his deep connection to the hospital and the community. He reiterated his commitment to supporting initiatives aimed at improving the well-being of Sierra Leoneans, citing the motto of his foundation, “Stay Healthy, Save Lives.”

The contribution aims to alleviate the persistent electricity issues faced by PCMH, reflecting Strasser’s dedication to giving back to the community that shaped him. Executive Director of the Sick Pikin Project, Ishmael Alfred Charles, expressed gratitude for the partnership with the Rodney Strasser Foundation, highlighting the impact the generator will have in saving lives at the hospital.

Dr. Amadu Sesay, in charge of PCMH, commended the donation, emphasizing its timely nature in addressing the hospital’s electricity crisis. He urged for continued support, noting that the majority of their patients come from deprived backgrounds.

The generosity of Rodney Strasser and the collaboration between the Rodney Strasser Foundation and the Sick Pikin Project serve as a beacon of hope, demonstrating the power of collective action in tackling healthcare challenges in Sierra Leone.
