THE STORY:

UPDATE: VICTORY! We received a generous donation of $2000 from the Joseph Assignment Global Initiative (http://www.josephassignment.org/) which covers our entire shipping costs!!! Many thanks to them for stepping in and joining our efforts.  This means we are good to go and our supplies will be shipping in early November.  Updates once they have taken off.

In the mean time:  We'll loop back with updates on any follow on campaign.

Thank YOU so much for your kind donations and your willingness to support the health care workers putting their lives at risk everyday!!!!!!!!!

Background: My name is Joy Spencer and I'm a concerned Sierra Leonean rallying my friends and colleagues to make a timely donation to an initiative of another friend--Janice Williams who is a member of the Citizen's Ebola Response Drive (also known as Community Response Group) based in Freetown. They are trusted individuals who have been working on this issue for months including doing awareness raising radio spots, sending a team to meet with Ministry of Health, engaging musicians and artists to join in the awareness raising and developing a list of responses and ways those in the Diaspora can help.

Timeline

Campaign Began: August 1, 2014

Original Goal: $3000

Original Goal met (thanks to your many generous donations): September 12, 2014 

Second goal (to cover shipping): $5200

Second goal met (thanks to generous donation from Joseph's Assignment Global Intitiative: October 16, 2014 

Group Supplies for Distribution: Community Response Group 

Delivering Supplies to: Ebola Treatment Center in Lakka (outside Freetown)

What have we bought and will be shipping?: Gloves, Masks and Body gowns because they are light (we can ship many units to maximize cost by weight allowance) as well as disposable (medical staff need a lot of disposable items right now in this Ebola crisis). The Citizen's Response Drive (Community Respose Group) will receive the donations and distribute to the new Ebola Treatment Center in Lakka (just outside Freetown).

I've chosen this group because I know many of the members and trust their commitment and follow through! I am happy to support their efforts. Learn more about their work here: http://communityresponsegroup.wordpress.com/page/2/
