2021 Donations

November: Sierra Leone

Requests for supplies continued to be limited for most of 2021 due to the cancellation of many global health projects during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, in November 2021 we were able to donate 126 boxes of medical/surgical supplies and 18 pieces of durable medical equipment to Connaught Hospital in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

This donation was organized by Edna Taylor, a cardiology nurse at Duke and member of Krio Descendants Union (KDU) of North Carolina, a non-profit group whose mission is “to provide a forum for cultural expression, a conduit for channeling Krio concerns and participation in the general affairs of Sierra Leoneans at home and in the diaspora.”
