MSF began supporting reproductive and child health service provision at Magburaka Government Hospital in 2016. The team is currently developing a strategy to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity associated with delays in accessing and receiving obstetric care. Reliable maps of the town will allow them to implement health behaviour surveys, leading to better information and outcomes for patients.
The Missing Maps project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the world (affected by humanitarian crises: disease epidemics, conflict, natural disasters, poverty, environmental crises). Building on HOT's disaster preparedness projects, the Missing Maps tasks facilitate pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to better facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocation when crises occur.

- #MissingMaps #hotosm-project-2193 Magburaka, Sierra Leone Added #buildings When saving your work, please leave the default comment but add what you actually mapped, for example "added buildings and a residential road".
Please click on a square to start mapping. Use Bing imagery for this project.
Simply digitise the outline of all buildings in each square and make sure you either SQUARE (shortcut key = 'S' in iD editor & 'Q' in JOSM) the corners of square/rectangular buildings OR ROUND OFF/CIRCLE (shortcut key = 'O' in iD editor) any huts.
The roads are mapped already, but you may need to align some to the imagery, so that they do not intersect the buildings. Just do this by dragging the nodes onto where you see the roads and paths.
Tag all buildings as building=building (in iD) or building=yes (in JOSM).
There is a good video on how to map buildings here, if you are new to editing OSM.
If you see a building that looks like it is incomplete (roof missing for example), please still tag it as a building.
Please do not delete any other data from this area if you do not know what it is.
