Who we are
The KaiCombey Foundation For Sustainable Development is a not for profit and community based, non-governmental organization. We are committed to strengthening the underprivileged within civil society by promoting and defending their human rights to healthcare, environmental, social and fundamental justice. We also empower communities through resource mobilization and support people with accessibility issues, youths and young people, women and children as we recognize the need to understand the underlying causes of poverty. The Foundation considers reproductive healthcare to be a fundamental right of the people.
Sustainable community empowerment is an integral vision of The KaiCombey Foundation that is significant and fundamental to all human beings. Helping a community to survive is part of lifting our country out of poverty and into self-reliance. We are committed to international solidarity, promoting, advocacy , and awareness raising to effect the change that we want to see from the grass-root. This is done through our fundamental human rights, and social justice work, in collaboration with other rights base organizations.
Our physical presence and project concentration is now in Sierra Leone, West Africa.
Interconnection between Human Rights and HealthCare
The KaiCombey foundation use human rights advocacy as a tool to promote the rights and access to healthcare by all. Access to free and affordable healthcare is a fundamental rights of all human being. This is also guaranteed by some regional and international conventions that bind government and its line institutions to provide and deliver quality healthcare delivery services to its citizens, the people they govern.
Our rights to healthcare is protected by the following instruments:
- Article 12 of the international Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
- Article 5 of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination
- Article 25 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
- Article 24 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and
- Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Right
In most of the healthcare systems, prevalence of human rights abuses within healthcare delivery services are seen as oversight in most developing countries. Unprofessional conducts of health professionals and within the health sectors are not seen as rights abuse to patients in most developing countries.
How important are human rights to the nursing profession? This is why, we at The KaiCombey Foundation are working on our deliverables in order to answer, and respond to the above question. One of our responses is to empower healthcare professionals in order to provide quality delivery services that underscore the recognition of patients dignity, promotion and protection of their fundamental human rights and well-being.
“Some human rights abuses of patients (allegations) are over sighted, and commonly seen in the eyes of nurses, simply because, better healthcare delivery policies are not enforceable standards/monitored, regulated or not updated with current global human rights codes of conducts in healthcare services.
Patients rights, freedom and privacy are abuse and infringed by healthcare professionals in Africa. There are so many “quack” medical professionals who are not regulated and posed as a treat to the society in Sierra Leone”, said by Mr Victor KaiCombey. The KaiCombey Foundation is strongly advocating for all medical schools to integrate some basic and integral part of human rights training as part of their academic courses.
The foundation can help provide consultancy service in developing human rights academic curriculum for medical schools, institutions, and colleges.
As part of our accomplishments in reference to the pictures, the foundation has paid medical bills for children and women who cannot afford to pay and most importantly surgical procedures.
The foundation has also provided scholarships to children whose parent cannot afford to pay for their tuition fees and other school charges. The foundation has also provided scholarships to students at school of nursing in the eastern province of Sierra Leone. These are students pursuing their career in the medical field but having some financial challenges. Most of the graduates are today gainfully employed, self reliance and contributing to the health care in the post conflict Sierra Leone, West Africa.
