Every bit of help counts
Sierra Leone and Liberia, two of the world’s poorest countries, are suffering from a silent epidemic that kills 30% more people worldwide than HIV/AIDS, malaria and TB: injuries. Those who survive trauma face a future constrained by physical disability that could be prevented or even treated. But with only one national trauma and orthopedic surgeon in each country, urgent action is required to train additional healthcare workers to handle the ever-rising burden of injuries.
Help us raise CHF 50,000* so that we can deliver much-needed fracture management training to 80 healthcare workers in Sierra Leone and Liberia. From now until June 17th, all funds received (except credit card transaction fees) will cover all costs associated with the projects: course materials, venue hire, accommodation, and travel for all participants and faculty.
