At times we tend to forget to count our blessings and get pulled down by our worries and problems that we over look those who are in desperate need of our help in any shape and form.
Recently on twitter, I have started to follow @medglobalorg and one of the doctors Naveed @seditious_medic. With some research I have gathered understanding around their medical mission to provide free healthcare to the refuges and needy in disaster zones.
Today, I am writing this post to help their team get donations for their medical mission leaving for Sierra Leone in few days.
I am guilty to accept myself that I never knew about Sierra Leone until I saw a tweet from Doctor Naveed that was a call for help to support their medical mission.
My curiosity led me to read about Sierra Leone on the internet. Below are some of the facts that I have gathered from various websites about this country:
- Sierra Leone remains among the world’s poorest countries, ranking 180th out of 187 countries in the Human Development Index in 2011. (Wikipedia)
- Most deaths within the country are attributed to nutritional deficiencies, lack of access to clean water, pneumonia, diarrheal diseases, anemia, malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. (Wikipedia)
- Sierra Leone’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2011 was $2 billion. The World Bank estimate gross national income (GNI) per capita for Sierra Leone is $340. This translates to over 72 percent of the population living on less than $1 per day, in extreme poverty. (Wikipedia)
MedGlobal is travelling to Sierra Leone this November 2018 to deliver free healthcare in hospitals and community clinics. Click on the following link to donate directly to support this great cause:
Please do share this post and link with family and friends to raise awareness around this great humanitarian work.
