Ebola Report 04.10.15

To date, officials are reporting over 10,000 deaths in West Africa due to this horrific virus.  With the death toll rising, MAP International continues to respond to the largest and most deadly Ebola outbreak in history by providing infectious disease protection suits and supplies to protect those treating the infected.   MAP’s relief response is respirators, face shields, gloves and over $16 million in essential medicines and supplies to fight this outbreak. 

MAP field staff in our Liberia office are closely coordinating efforts with the Ministry of Health and other international responders and have learned that more protective gear is needed.  Due to continuing spread of Ebola throughout the region, existing supplies of personal protective gear have been exhausted, and government health facility workers and surveillance teams in the affected areas may not be adequately protected. 

 

MAP International began responding to the largest and most deadly Ebola outbreak in history at the onset in March by providing urgently needed Personal Protective Suits (PPE’s).

 MAP's Liberian team leader, Zeela Zaizay, said, "We are calling out to everyone to support us. Support us with chlorine, with medications, with resources. We have proven we have the capability and the strategies and the bravery to fight Ebola. But it is too early for us to say we have beaten Ebola. We have only shown that, if we get the support, we can.”

Final Report Project Fully Funded

MAP International is continuing to provide antibiotics to The Congo and many other countries, in recent months medicines and supplies have left MAP for Honduras, Haiti, Somalia, Korea, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Liberia, Mexico, Moldova, Nicaragua, Romania, Ukraine and many others. MAP also continues to provide clean water in Kenya, Uganda, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Liberia, Indonesia, Honduras, Bolivia and Ecuador through the use of Sawyer Water Filters. Thanks to the support of our donors, this project has been fully funded!

Half the world’s population lacks regular access to quality, essential medicines. In the poorest communities, private non-governmental aid organizations and church-based initiatives provide a critical component of the health system. These agencies manage complex field programs including hospitals, clinics and community health programs. They often lack the time or expertise to procure the lowest-cost, highest-quality medicines & supplies from global sources. That is where MAP International steps in -- providing, from a single source, a combination of essential supply chain & logistics services required to maximize humanitarian impact practically anywhere on earth, including rural and urban settings and U.N-defined complex humanitarian emergencies. For many agencies, providing these essential products and services themselves cost-effectively is often impossible. MAP International can partner with them to make it happen.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, in part though GlobalGiving – MAP International was able to provide a container with 250,000 treatments of life-saving antibiotics and other essential medicines to our partner, the International Medical Corps that was distributed in the eastern region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo in early 2013.

Without support from donors, through GlobalGiving - this shipment would not have been made possible. We are so grateful and hope that you will continue in helping us provide health and hope to a world in need.

How do you think MAP can reach more people with essential medicines? Are there any specific countries you would like to see medicines being distributed by MAP? MAP would love to engage our donors in our projects, if you have any questions or thoughts please email us at kpace@map.org or call (404)492-6585.
