Summary

Keep healthcare workers in Ebola-stricken areas of Sierra Leone, Africa protected from the disease by providing gloves, gowns, masks, goggles and disinfectant to the clinics and hospitals where they're needed most.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Countries with limited resources have a difficult time providing enough protective gear to their healthcare workers during an epidemic. Ensuring the safety of the caregiver is top priority when their skills and experience is so desperately needed. Without proper protection their lives are at risk and many will not work knowing they don't have access to the protective gear necessary to do their jobs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Global Links can meet the real-time needs of Sierra Leone's health officials with an air-drop shipment of protective gear. Seven (7) pallets of healthcare worker protective kits - 4,200 total kits with gloves, gowns, masks, goggles and disinfectant - can be assembled, delivered and accepted through the proper channels, ensuring the kits arrive in a timely manner to the right hospitals and clinics.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long-term impact is immeasurable as having access to proper protective gear not only protects the healthcare worker (and their ability to do their job effectively) but also helps limit the spread of the disease, increases the number of patients each caregiver can treat and improves the function of the healthcare facility.
