Summary

We are working every day to improve the health and welfare of the people of Margibi County, Liberia with an emphasis on preventative healthcare for women and their children. While focused on community-based preventative care, we also run an acute care clinic from our headquarters in Kakata taking care of the immediate medical needs of over 138,000 people. This project provides the funds that allow us to expand our reach into the community.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

After more than fourteen years of violent conflict in Liberia, peace has been restored, a democratically elected government is in place, and Liberians are moving forward to restore their country. The civil war claimed over 300,000 lives, displacing over 80% of the population and destroying all power, water, school, and hospital facilities. In Margibi County many people are illiterate as a result of the destruction, more than 44% of girls have never attended school and there are few jobs.

How will this project solve this problem?

Dr. Hena , a Liberian born missionary, developed the framework for a Liberian health initiative while living and working as a doctor in Kazakhstan. She returned to Liberia last June and opened a community-based health clinic where she treats immediate and acute health needs. Malaria and diarrhea continue to be the major causes of death with skin problems, anemia, worms, respiratory illnesses, fevers and STDs very common. She is hiring and training healthcare workers to work in the community.

Potential Long Term Impact

Kakata is centrally located at a crossroads with many people travelling to and from the capital, Monrovia. There are four (4) districts in Margibi County, thirty-three (33) communities in which we serve. The staff works in these communities daily, meeting with people, assessing their needs, making referrals to our clinic or other health providers. Education programs are developed as required based on the needs identified in each community for nutrition, sanitation, water safety, and disease.
