Four Brother’s Brother Foundation medical containers arrived in Sierra Leone and Liberia in August 2014 and are now in the process of being distributed. These shipments include priority items of liquid soap, disinfectants, gloves, masks, personal protective equipment (P.P.E.) and general medical supplies. Receiving facilities include the Ebola treatment centers of Kenema and Connaught in Sierra Leone and Elwa and Phebe Hospitals in Liberia. Two more shipments are en route for Liberia and Sierra Leone and additional shipments are planned for September 2014.
Over the past three years Brother’s Brother Foundation provided over 20 tractor trailer loads of medical supplies and simple medical equipment to hospitals and clinics in Sierra Leone (53) and Liberia (20). Many of these hospitals are now treating Ebola patients. Several have lost medical staff (died or in quarantine) due to Ebola.
