THE STORY:

Last year, I was in a serious bike accident that left me with a sprained ankle and several gashes.  I rushed immediately to the nearest health center on campus, where I received immediate care, allowing me to enjoy a quick, speedy, and complication-free recovery.

I was a lucky American, who had access to the quick, well-staffed, and robust health infrastructure that the United States has to offer.  I was blessed to have my pressing medical need taken care of instantaneously.

Unfortunately, there is a population of patients in far greater need of healthcare whose health systems are under-equipped for the challenge: mothers and children in Liberia.

The 2014 Ebola crisis destroyed Liberia's struggling health systems. Thousands died of Ebola, but even more died from its hidden effects.  Many people avoided going to hospitals out of fear of contracting Ebola, and those who did seek treatment were met with understaffed facilities with little or no resources. Moms and kids suffered the most, as there was a 50% increase in maternal and infant mortality during and after the ebola crisis.

Partners in Health is fundraising to reverse this trend by advocating for maternal and child health. We aim to strengthen health systems, train health professionals, and generate new knowledge to develop a sustainable healthcare system in Liberia. This fundraiser will help PIH further develop the Pleebo health center in Liberia, which currently serves a population of 160,000 and is overwhelmed by the need for healthcare in the area, resulting in three hour wait times. A successful campaign will enable the health center to build space for more beds, hire midwives, screen pregnant women for HIV, purchase Mama Baby kits and more. Partners in Health is a worldwide organization that strives to make healthcare a human right. Help us make this a reality by donating to our campaign to support maternal and child health in Liberia!
