Project Liberia-Ebola (PLE) and the Duke University have facilitated the donation and airlift shipment of PLE’s largest consignment of medical supplies to date, according to a release.
The shipment of 25 pallets brings the total amount of PLE’s delivered supplies to Liberia to 20,000 lbs.
Since early August 2014, PLE, with the help of partners in Liberia, has coordinated the collection, delivery and distribution of more than 5,000lbs of medical supplies to combat EVD.
The latest consignment, which came in sometime last week, is slated to be distributed to hospitals and clinic in Lofa, Nimba Grand Bassa, Maryland and Bong Counties. Institutions that would also benefit from PLE and partners’ gesture include Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, University of Liberia, John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, C. H. Rennie Hospital Curran Hospital and Tellewoyan Hospital. Others are Foya Hospital, Phebe Hospital, Ganta Methodist Hospital, J.J. Dossen, Hope for Women, Catholic Charities, ELWA ETU, and Redemption Hospital.
Portions of relief will also go to clinics in West Point and Lakpazee communities.
The medical supplies, which were donated by Duke University, are for the benefit of healthcare workers and citizens of Liberia.
As PLE “thanked Duke University for their life-saving donations of medical supplies,” they also extended appreciation to LIFT, AFYA Foundation, Smile of Liberia, University of Liberia and Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.
Project Liberia-Ebola is an apolitical community of concerned Liberians coordinating emergency efforts to combat the Ebola virus disease in Liberia. Established in August 2014, PLE has delivered 20,000lbs of medical supplies to Liberia in less than three months.
