Summary

The West Africa Ebola outbreak of 2014-2016 decimated the nation of Liberia, then recovering from civil wars (1980-2003). The outbreak closed clinics and hospitals as Liberia faced economic collapse. Healthcare in Liberia has not recovered and now the country faces the COVID-19 pandemic without the most basic of supplies. RESTORE HOPE: LIBERIA and Friends of Foya-Borma Hospital will send essential medicines and provide critically needed medical-surgical supplies to Kolahun and Foya Hospitals.

Challenge

Kolahun and Foya Hospitals, serve more than 170,000 people, but lack basic supplies such as gloves and IV cannulas as well as essential drugs such as antimalarials and antiseizure meds. With the current economic crisis in Liberia (inflation rose 31% in 2019), the hospitals aren't receiving any support from the government. Consequently, health care is on the verge of collapse. RHL is the ONLY means of support to Kolahun District in the face of the pandemic, both hospitals are bracing for COVID.

Solution

RESTORE HOPE: LIBERIA and Friends of Foya-Borma Hospital are fundraising to provide emergency support to provide essential pharmaceuticals and critically needed medical-surgical supplies to Liberia. This will give them time to continue advocating at the Ministry of Health for greater resources and to set up a Revolving Pharmacy Fund which will be a sustainable avenue for procuring medicines and supplies in the future. Provision of PPE, soap, masks and essential medicines are needed NOW.

Long-Term Impact

Providing essential medicines and medical supplies will SAVE LIVES and prevent unnecessary suffering within a community that has already endured so much. Our goal is to provide drugs and supplies to equip each hospital for approximately 6 months. We are committed to supporting the hospitals and the people of Lofa County during these dire times. At the same time, we are working to find longer-term solutions to a chronic situation as Liberia's health care system teeters on the brink of collapse.
