Our History

The Shepherd’s Hospice Sierra Leone (TSHSL) believes that all people deserve compassion, honesty and comfort as they deal with a life-threatening illness.

Registered as a local, non-governmental organization in 1994, the mission of TSHSL is to promote palliative care and health development in Sierra Leone.

The Shepherd’s Hospice was established in 1994 in Allen Town. We moved to our current peaceful, rural site, as a purpose-built facility with inpatient, outpatient and home-based care services in 2016.

The Shepherd’s Hospice is a non-denominational Christian charity with board members selected from major Christian churches, such as Methodist Church Sierra Leone and Huntingdon Connexion Sierra Leone, and diverse professional backgrounds, such as Medicine, Public Health, Nursing, Law and Business Management.
