HOW WE ARE HELPING:
The Foundation continues to dedicate resources and programs to health crisis that threaten the very survival of populations throughout West Africa. In the coming year, the Foundation plans to expand on the build out of its Annie Doe Memorial Foundation Health Center in Sugar Cane Farm, Lower Buchanan, Grand Bassa County and upgrade its facility with modern equipment to offer free basic healthcare services for immunizations, screenings, check-ups and disease prevention and awareness education.
We partner with health professionals in Liberia and individuals, pharmaceutical companies, and organizations in the United States to make this a reality impacting lives of underserved population of marginalized communities in Liberia.
One of our initiatives is to facilitate health awareness fairs in the community, which was started February 2017. As we move forward with the health awareness fairs our focus is on diabetes and hypertension screenings with our target population. Education materials and discussions from our expert team of health professionals on malaria, typhoid fever, HIV/AIDS/Tuberculosis, cardiovascular disease, and hygiene.
The Annie Doe Memorial Foundation Health Center will be accessible to over 20% of the 38,000 residents of Buchanan.
