About The Project

$65,000 needed to keep the hospital open

$23,000 has already been raised by the residents


The investment will keep the only hospital in the Buchanan area of Liberia open. The hospital secured a grant for solar to be installed, so now the hospital is able to provide safe care during the night. With your investment the hospital will be able to buy extra fuel for ambulances, purchase life saving medications, and feed their patients. At times the hospital reuses gloves so your investment will be able to purchase gloves to help reduce the spread of unwanted infections or bacteria. The hospital expects to increase its patient load, because other counties do not have a hospital. The hospital currently seeing upwards of 8,000 patients a month. This important investment will also allow the hospital to purchase PPE to protect the people on the front lines, our hospital workers if needed. 

The investment will also allow Buchanan to serve more citizens referred from three other communities from Sinoe, River Cess and Grand Bassa, counties. It will allow more people in their neighboring communities to have access to safe, quality health care as well.


.....Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Jawara called on the people of the county to "help support their own hospital" by contributing to the reopening of the hospital

Backstory

The citizens in Buchanan (pop.34,270) are collaborated and helped raise money collectively to keep their only hospital in Buchanan open. They also formed a committee, Help Save the Liberian Government Hospital to help fund raise for their hospital, which was having a very difficult time accessing funds from the government. The hospital reopened in October 5, 2019 after the Help Save the Liberian Government Hospital raised over $23,602. The hospital was closed after it had suffered two major fires in 2018. When the hospital was shut, a pregnant woman died and when there was a major bus accident access to emergency care was not available. Now opened, the hospital's projected patient load can be upwards to 10,000 per month.
