On Sunday 24th November we received the sad news that our colleague doctor for CapaCare at Masanga, had passed away on 23rd November in isolation in the Netherlands due to Lassa fever.
We have always worked well with Wouter and appreciated him. He was very dedicated to Sierra Leone and the Surgical Training Program of CapaCare. He used to visit us to check on his students and we would meet him at graduation of the STP’s.
We wish his parents, family and girlfriend much strength with his early departure.
We also wish all at CapaCare and Masanga Hospital much strength with this great loss and offer our help where ever we can.
Rest in Peace Wouter
