Kebeh is a student and six months pregnant. She has only received a medical checkup once so far in her pregnancy and she is now in her second trimester. Because of the shortage of medical professionals in Liberia, there is little or no help for prenatal care for Kebah. She explains. “It is very difficult to get help and the medical care when I get sick”. Kebeh also has no money to pay for medical visits or medicine due to high-cost private clinic fees.

Abigail Zaza
Abigail Zaza

Abigail is a young mother that became pregnant while she was in school. Throughout her pregnancy Abigail did not have access to the prenatal care services she needed. She lives too far from any hospital and she would have to walk miles to reach it. She could only visit the hospital three times during her pregnancy for her checkups. This is how it is for Abigail and her family. They cannot afford to seek medical care for herself or her child. Her husband only makes $1 day and they have to pay for the out-of-pocket medical services that far exceed what they earn. Their struggle is genuine and inconceivable, this is their real world. Abigail explains, “It is not easy to find a doctor or a nurse when there is no money, we do not have the money to pay for medicine, the cost of the drugs is also so high”. Abigail worries that her child, now 1 year old, won’t be able to get the medical attention she might need if she gets sick. The reality is that she can’t even afford the doctor visits or the cost of her child’s health-care. She is not alone. There are countless mothers and their families in similar situations like Abigail.

Ma Kesselly

The reality is that a young woman named Ma had many difficulties throughout her pregnancy. But, she was one of the lucky ones. Ma survived, giving birth to a beautiful baby boy, now two weeks old. It wasn’t her fault that she failed to have any prenatal care throughout her pregnancy. She didn’t have the chance to get the care she needed by any trained healthcare provider. Instead, Ma gave birth at home. She could not get help from a doctor or nurse in her community because it is very difficult to get an appointment as the healthcare workforce in Liberia is terribly understaffed. Ma is a farmer and sells her daily produce to provide for her family. The produce she sells barely earns her $2 a day. This is her reality, it is impossible for Ma to afford to receive the regular healthcare check-ups that she needs for herself and her fourteen day old infant. But, with the support of Eli Health System, reaching out to Ma and other woman like her and their families they can. Eli Health System makes a difference, providing the care and support needed for Ma and her child, so they may live healthier lives. Your donation today will help mothers like Ma. Please give today and make the lives of many a healthy reality.

Tarnue Johnson
Tarnue Johnson

We are very proud of Tarnue Johnson. Tarnue desperately wants to become a medical doctor. He wants to give back to his community and help the people in his area get the healthcare they so urgently need. His town is a place where malaria is an epidemic. He worries about becoming sick himself, and how he would get healthcare. Tarnue’s parents cannot afford the cost of a private doctor or hospital nor can they afford to send him to medical school. Tarnue has a passion for the medical field, but has many obstacles to overcome. His circumstances are that he lives in a very poverty-ridden location that make achieving his dream seem virtually impossible. You can help make his dream a reality, giving him the needed tuition, and healthcare and services that he and his town deserve. Please help Eli Health System come to the need of Tarnue and help him stay healthy and have the possibility of achieving his dream of becoming a doctor and giving back.
