The ReSurge Africa Organization

Reconstructive-plastic-surgical teams from the Scotland based Reconstructive Plastic Surgery (IRPS), renamed the ReSurge Africa Organization, make regular visits to the Holy Spirit Hospital where they perform life-changing surgeries for impoverished Sierra Leoneans while they train local medical professionals in the arts associated with their craft.

Dr. Nina Seigelstein

Dr. Nina Seigelstein (obstetrics-gynaecology) first visited the Holy Spirit Hospital in January, 2009 when she and her four person medical team surgically treated 25 women in need. Dr. Seigelstein, moved by the great need of the many women she examined, decided to raise funds to have a much needed maternity ward built as a part of the Holy Spirit Hospital. The new Maternity unit opened in September 2016.

Dr. Seigelstein is President of www.oneworldwomenshealth.org

Dr. Seigelstein returned to the Hospital in January, 2012 with another small team to treat 22 more women in need of major gynaecological surgeries.
