LibPositives Spotlight present Maima Dabah Quoi Pelham
Mrs. Maima Dabah Quoi Pelham is a professional nurse and an entrepreneur with several years of experience. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Cuttington University in 2010 and is currently studying for a Master of Public Health. She obtained two certificates: one in medical imaging techniques in 2014 from Southern Medical University and the other in gynecological and pediatric disease treatment of traditional Chinese medicine in 2011 from the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China.
From 2011 to 2013, Mrs. Maima Pelham served as head nurse for a World Bank-funded project to evaluate nurse performance at Redemption Hospital. Having witnessed the health challenges faced by women and children across the country while serving as a nurse, she was inspired to start up a humanitarian organization that aims to provide free health care to vulnerable women and children through mobile clinic outreach. She later resigned in 2013 to establish Serene Health for All Mobile Clinic, which she is currently managing. She serves as the executive director providing leadership for all activities and supervising both staff and volunteers with oversight from the board of directors.
She also owns and manages one of Liberia’s leading fashion design businesses, Cam Fashion Designs, which has been the major source of funding for Serene Health for the last few years. Through small support and grants, the organization has been able to regularly mobilize a team of volunteer medical practitioners to conduct medical outreach to communities as well as implement projects to promote maternal health in rural communities in Montserrado County. She has strong innovative and entrepreneur skills that have been instrumental in raising funds to support the organization.
Mrs. Maima Pelham is very passionate about helping less fortunate people through the provision of health care.
