THE STORY:

Hi, everyone! Thanks for visiting this page!

During my time at Vanderbilt, I've found a home in this Partners in Health-Engage team. I've been able to work with some of the most inspirational people I've ever met, and put our work forward to fight against health inequities around the world. Partners in Health is the most admirable, courageous, and dedicated organization out there, and I hope you can join me in this movement by donating!

Right now, the Pleebo Health Center in Maryland County, Liberia, is suffering. The facility was built with the intention to serve no more than 60,000 people, but they are currently serving more than 160,000 people--100,000 over capacity. This means that when women in labor come in, their wait times are, on average, over 3 hours long. 

Today, 1,072 out of every 100,000 women die in childbirth in Liberia, compared to less than 20 for every 100,000 here in the United States. The money that you donate will go to the Pleebo Health Center to buy 7 more post-partum beds and 3 more delivery beds, as well as the expansion of the family consult room, antenatal consult room, and staff capacity.

Partners in Health and the Pleebo Health Center have set a goal of reaching 0 maternal deaths over the next five years. That means we need to raise $100,000 by December. Can you help us reach this goal? Look at the pictures above to see the Before & After of the Pleebo Health Center's Delivery Room since Partners in Health arrived in Liberia!

Some price points: $30 pays for supplements to treat severe malnutrition for one person for a year, $100 allows us to screen 100 pregnant women for HIV, $300 provides a family enrolled in our TB/HIV program monthly food packages for 6 months, and $3,000 funds space for an additional post-partum bed, allowing new mothers to stay at Pleebo for the required 48-hour observation after giving birth.
