Liberia Declares State of Emergency: Minister of Health, “Our entire nation is threatened.”
How RESTORE HOPE: LIBERIA is responding...
We are one of the only humanitarian aid organizations remaining in rural Lofa county. We must respond to the health crisis that the current pandemic now presents in Liberia.
Here’s what RHL is doing:
We are all witnessing what this pandemic can do to health systems of various capacities around the world.
Imagine the scale of mortality that could befall a country that has scant resources. These two hospitals support a population of over 170,000. THERE IS NOT ONE VENTILATOR, NOT ONE MASK, NOT ONE PAIR OF EXAM GLOVES IN STOCK. THE PHARMACY SHELVES ARE EMPTY. Even basic items are needed—soap, hand sanitizer, bleach and other cleaning supplies, and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to protect the lives of our hospital staff.
They are doing what they can: setting up handwashing stations around the hospital and putting in place some measures learned from the Ebola epidemic such as screening points and isolation units.
Without more support, the number of deaths will be astounding.
Your donation will SAVE LIVES.
