THE STORY:

Stephen McDonough wrote -

We are raising funds to expand access to maternal and child health care at Pleebo Health Center, which serves a population of 160,000 in Maryland County, Liberia. By funding operating costs of a new maternity ward and building strong health systems, we aim to double the health center's capacity for safe deliveries.

 

In 2014, a deadly outbreak of Ebola struck Liberia. The outbreak wreaked havoc on the already fragile health systems, killing caregivers, shutting down facilities, and reversing years of hard-won progress in maternal and child health. Today, Liberia’s maternal mortality rate has increased to 1,072 deaths per 100,000 live births -- one of the highest in the world.

 

When Partners In Health arrived at Pleebo Health Center in 2014, we made a promise to the community that we would bring first-class health care to the mothers and children of Liberia. Now it is time to deliver on that promise.

 

We Will Deliver! is a call to action. Mothers cannot wait for safe births. Children cannot wait for quality care. We will deliver on our promise, and bring top-quality health care to our Liberian community.
