Over many months MedEarth recovered medical items for the upcoming shipment to Liberia. These items will be shipped to the Medicover Health Centre and the Mental Health Rehabilitation project in Liberia.
Over the years Liberia has gone through civil unrest and the Ebola crisis which have extensively crippled many of its institutions and its healthcare delivery system. The project’s goal is to provide and ensure medical access to healthcare services for the poor communities in the area.
MedEarth filled 4 trucks with over 1,000 medical items worth more than $330,000 including lab supplies, physiotherapy equipment, hospital beds and mattresses, stretcher beds, walking aids, crutches, theatre lights, ventilators, heaters, bedside cabinets, over bed tables, medicine trolleys, treatment tables, resuscitation masks and boxes of various medical supplies. These items will make it possible to provide medical aid, long term treatment plans, mental health promotion and rehabilitation programs for the patients in and around Liberia.
We want to extend a huge “Thank You” to all of our donors. We would not have been able to do what we do without your amazing support and generosity.
