THE STORY:

PIH Engage at Boston College is fundraising to expand the Pleebo Health Center in Liberia. We hope to aid Partner in Health's effort to improve access to maternal and child health care for the 160,000 residents of Maryland County in 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. PIH Engage supports the work Partner in Health does to bring medical care to those who need it most. This year, we are fundraising to support the Pleebo Health Center in Liberia. After the Ebola crisis in 2014, the Liberian health system crumbled. Compared to the 16 per 100,000 rate in the US, maternal mortality increased to 1,072 per 100,000 live births in Liberia. Ever since the eradication of Ebola in Liberia, PIH refocused and built the Pleebo Health Center to provide a safe place for mothers to give birth. Currently, the Pleebo Health Center serves 160,000 residents in Maryland County of Liberia and sees 100 patients a day. All our proceeds will go towards supporting Partners in Health's expansion of the Pleebo Health Center to improve their ability to serve pregnant mothers in Maryland County. Why should you care? Because health is a human right. We live in such a connected world that the problems of our neighbors are our problems, too. By helping to build a healthier Liberia, we are inspiring the construction of a healthier world.
