Idiatou Diallo

Nursing Student at Tambacounda Hospital

Idiatou Diallo is a graduate of the Le Korsa scholarship program. With the help of our monthly support she was able to attend nursing school and graduate with top honors. She now works at the Foyer de Jeunes Filles and at Tambacounda Hospital. During the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa, she spearheaded an Ebola Education initiative, funded by Le Korsa. She organized her fellow nursing students, gathered educational posters and prevention kits, and traveled throughout Sinthian and the outlying villages giving seminars on prevention best practices. With her help Le Korsa was able to pass out over 1,000 Ebola prevention kits, ensuring families a basic form of protection from this epidemic.
