Our effort in the process of reconstruction in Cote d'Ivoire
The aftermath of the post-electoral crisis in Cote d'Ivoire has been disastrous. Most health facilities have been closed while those still operating such as the general hospital of Koumassi are under equipped and faced a critical shortage of medical supplies and equipment. Ensuring supplies and equipment was the key actions in order to re-establish access to health care in the city of Koumassi.
With a population of more than 500,000 inhabitants, Koumassi is located in the periphery of Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote d'Ivoire.
In collaboration with USIACI, the association of Ivoirians in Virginia, Act for Africa International has raised funds for the handling and the shipment of a container of 40ft of refurbished equipment donated by Medical Missionaries. The foundation has provided quality medical equipment , needed supplies and logistic support to enhance the general hospital of Koumassi.
With the generous help of our supporters, we have raised $12,355.00. We thank you for your remarkable contribution.
The donation's ceremony was held within the hospital on Wednesday January 30th, 2013 in the presence of administrative authorities of the city of Koumassi, Traditional leaders, the health personal of beneficiaries facilities and inhabitants.
